Our family has used John Barry's services for over 15 years. We have been consistently helped and served in a professional and timely manner, sometimes in very complex tax issues. I would recommend them without reservation.

Andrew Barry has been immensely helpful in getting our family's finances in order. He adapted his tools to our specific financial situation. He is passionate about budgeting and really cares about his clients. He took as much time as I needed, analyzed our strengths and weaknesses and gave us a plan helped us find new margin, and helped us start to work our way out of debt. I highly, highly recommend this firm!

This is a terrific firm! When we were new to the area, a friend recommended these guys and I know why. Not only is Andrew knowledgeable about tax laws and how they affect us; but he knows *us* (and the implications of our tax situations with independent businesses).It gets better though! They offer free advice on financial planning to make the best of our situation. It's truly a blessing to have such a firm handling our taxes!

I'd done a previous year's state taxes (which are split across two states) wrong and went to Andrew Barry to get the second state filed correctly. I was very pleased with the visit. He took the time to explain things to me, raised questions about previous years that would potentially let me get more money back, and did it all for a very reasonable price. In the past I've done my taxes online, but next year plan to take them to this firm to give them a try with my full tax filing. My first visit was definitely a good experience.

Ryan cares about his clients. I am operating a small business, and I had a lot of questions about taxes. Ryan answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that I could understand. What I liked most about Ryan is that he helped me focus on one issue at a time, and gave me simple instructions on what to do next. Also, his follow up email was very thorough, and I was able to use that email as a reference guide for my next action steps. I am knowledgeable about many things, but taxes is not one of them. It’s nice to know that Ryan is there to support me with my taxes, and guide me in the right direction! I think every small business owner, especially starting out, needs someone like Ryan to start off on the right foot. Thank you Ryan!

I was referred to Ryan by a friend and I’m grateful he was able to help prepare and file my taxes. He explained everything as we went through the process in ways that were easy to understand and helped me know what was needed . It was very useful to be able to upload the necessary documents and get fast responses. It was a smooth process especially with everything we needed to do.

Absolutely great service. I needed last minute tax help and Ryan came through when everybody else was busy or could not meet my time needs. Answered the phone right away and got to work right away. He is responsive, quick at getting things done, will give great advice on how to save with taxes, and is very reasonable in terms of pricing. I will definitely be using him again for my tax needs.

I would 100% recommend Foothill Tax Services. We have been beyond pleased with our experience. Ryan has been nothing but professional and willing to go the extra mile to help my wife and I with our taxes. We decided to use Foothill Tax Services because we have a potentially complicated tax situation with working remotely in different states. It turns out it was even more complicated than we originally imagined but Ryan has been there for us every step of the way. He would work around our schedules and even meet on weekends as well. Took his time to explain complicated tax concepts in a way that is easily to understand. If you want someone is professional, sees you as a not just a client but as a person, flexible, knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra mile for you to get you information on what you need, then you should definitely check out Foothill Tax Services.

In the past, I have always competed my own tax returns. Due to changes in my small business and several complex transactions, I decided to reach out to Ryan at Foothill Tax Services for guidance. Ryan was amazing! He walked me though each aspect of my return and provided insights I hadn’t considered. His knowledge, patience and responsiveness are outstanding. He prepared my tax returns quickly and made the process effortless for me. I will definitely use his services in the future.
