Arion G.
Excellent CPA firm! Very responsive, helpful, and knowledgeable with various tax laws that we needed help with!
Jenny B.
Masler & Associates is an excellent CPA firm. Sharon has been doing our taxes for years and is always very thorough in making sure we claim every deduction allowable. Our taxes are complex due to working out of country and also owning a business. Masler & Associates knows how to handle all the minutia. Most importantly, everyone at the firm is “down to earth” and very helpful. I would highly recommend them to everyone: from folks that have simple returns to those with the most complex tax situations.
Tom W.
Sharon and her staff have been a great help for us to understand not only tax laws, but also how to use Quickbooks, and keep it organized. Of course we could never do it all perfectly, which is why we feel so lucky that her team is very knowledgeable, professional, and always very patient. We have had a wonderful experience with them for the past 8 years, and we are definitely looking forward to keeping them as our CPA for many more. I definitely recommend her services.
Lori L.
Love these folks! I highly recommend them, especially for corporate and personal tax complexities. I give them a workout on my tax needs and they always come through with flying colors to find all the deductions allowed to save me big bucks!
David S.
The result of the audit, you ask? Masler & Associates turned an upside-down situation right-side up. Long story short, they negotiated our huge tax bill into a substantial refund!
John-Paul Beeghly
The crew at Masler and Associates go the extra mile to make you feel taken care of. They work hard to get every deduction possible, and push you to find every receipt so there is no questions later.
Dr. Jeff Van Rensselaer, Chiropractor

Tax Reform is Doing Well
Article by: Masler & Associates, CPAs

The recently passed tax bill is called the Tax Cuts and New Jobs Act. The original name given the action that resulted in the tax bill was TAX REFORM. So, lets consider did the Act do the job intended by the bill? I say it did.

1. What is Tax Reform? On the face of it, the term appears to mean that our system of taxation was going to be modified and/or enhanced so that in some way(s) the new one would be better than the prior one.

2. What might those tax reform actions include? Less verbiage and complexity of language; Improved ease of ability to interpret intent; greater equity and fairness of the system; improved ease of compliance; reduction in features favoring special interests; tendency to aid larger blocks of t he US population. There may be many others, but the ones stated here probably cover the major concerns of tax reform.

3. Though at first, muttering was heard that the Act did not accomplish what it set out to do, but as large numbers of taxpayers began to feel the benefits in their own finances, tendencies toward satisfaction began appearing. Many received larger paychecks through lowered withholding tax; some businesses found that they could afford to hire additional workers; the appearance that many taxpayers may begin to fill out their own 2018 tax returns without having to pay a fee to tax preparation firms is seemingly being realized; fairness of tax levels for various income amounts is being realized; large amounts of previously untaxed foreign earnings of US companies has begun to be taxed and brought back to the US.

The jury of course is still out on the larger issues regarding tax reform. Will the benefits outweigh risks of inflation? Will errors and loopholes that have appeared due to the haste with which the Act was drafted be corrected? Will there be a follow on tax reform act to incorporate what might have been missed in the haste of drafting? Will the stock market continue to appreciate the financial logic underlying the government's approach to tax reform? Time and analysis will tell.
