About My Firm John F. Pearson CPA "Counseling Clients Through Change" I have been a CPA for 25 years, serving the tax preparation and planning needs of my clients. All future growth of my practice will be focused on capitalizing on my skills in advising individual and small business clients who are going through life changing events, such as. Relocation, especially interstate issues, Divorce, Death of a loved one, A new business startup or transfer, especially home based business, Developing strategies for college/private school expenses My clients are spread out over 12 states….that is as a result of my focus in the relocation area. Even after clients leave the area, I am able to capably serve them due to my extensive experience with interstate tax issues. My average client has been with me for 15+ years, and I greatly appreciate their trust and loyalty. I operate a home office based practice, so my services are priced most reasonably, since my overhead is considerably lower than that of my competitors. It also helps me advise other home based businesses on how to take every legitimate tax advantage available to them, and thus creating more after tax income and benefits for the business owner and their family. I would like to share the text of one testimonial letter from a client and friend, Bruce Wilson. 29 Driftway Lane Darien, Connecticut 06820 (203) 655-1639 To Whom It May Concern: I am writing you this letter to recommend to you the services of John F. Pearson CPA to be your tax advisor. I recently moved from California to Darien and was employed by a major insurance company located in New York. For three years, I continued to use my CPA in California to prepare my taxes. Then a friend recommended I meet with John for a free review. John took one look at my returns and told me that my state returns had been done all wrong...to my detriment. To make a long story short, he prepared amended returns for three years for me, and when all was settled by the various states, I received additional refunds totaling over $10,000!! John specializes in working with those who have recently moved. And he is very capable in helping you find ideas that will reduce your taxes in future years. I could not recommend him more highly. My phone number is above...you are free to call me and discuss John and the value his counsel has been to me. Very truly yours Bruce Wilson I believe I can be a valuable tax advisor to you, not only in the preparation of a return, but also helping you plan to keep more of what you earn. And if your needs extend to financial services and estate planning, I have affiliations that can serve your needs there as well. I look forward to working with you!!
