Form 1040 tax return client

Mike Evans handled my tax return for 2014 and I have nothing but praise for him! After years of paying too much to my previous CPA, who year-after-year completed my 1040s using my current income and previous year's information -- and not much more, Mike went above and beyond to find me deductions and loopholes (these quotes are word for word however I wish my client didn't use the word "loopholes".  What I did was take the time to learn about her situation and knew of some legitimate tax codes that allowed legal deductions she was unaware of) I didn't know existed. For example, I moved to a new city and started a new job last year, and he informed me that moving and storage expenses could be claimed for both me and my 18-year-old daughter. His knowledge about tax law and thorough examination of my current situation saved me literally hundreds on my return. Also, he's just about the kindest person I've ever had the pleasure of working with. See you next year, Mike!
