Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Working with Chrissy was the smoothest and most pleasant tax experience I’ve ever had. At first I was a bit unsure if it made sense to work with a CPA in PA, given that I live in CA and also have state taxes in another state, but she came highly recommended, so I figured I’d give it a shot–and I am so glad I did! She is responsive, patient, thorough, and lovely to work with throughout.

– SAM

It is my pleasure to provide the highest possible recommendation for Chrissy and everyone at CMAG. My wife and I have received the biggest refunds every since switching to CMAG. Furthermore, they are very timely in every respect and Chrissy is always willing to make time for me to discuss tax strategies specific to my situation. I cannot be more pleased with CMAG.

– Dan DelCampo

I am lucky to have had Chrissy Brennan at Cotton Mather doing my personal taxes for 5+ years. I used to agonize over doing it myself; now I hand everything to her and she takes care of it quickly and efficiently. She even knows if I have missed something and follows up on it. Highly recommend, as long as it doesn’t make her too busy for me!

From Our Blog

Make sure you know what’s going on in the world of accounting and taxes by regularly visiting our blog. Here’s a quick look at our most popular topics!

When you have your personal or business taxes prepared by an independent operator, what happens if that person “vanishes” – or dies? This is a concern nobody thinks about until it happens. Tax preparers can go out of business for any number of reasons, and it’s possible they won’t be in a position to tie up all loose ends with their clients.

In business, as in life, you should learn to expect the unexpected. Expenses can crop up seemingly out of nowhere, and if there isn’t cash on hand to meet them, potentially serious problems can arise for the business owner. Having an adequate cash reserve allows the business to take care of unexpected or emergency expenses and still operate smoothly.

Tax scams are not new or uncommon. Each year, scammers seem to get more creative with their threats and means of communication. Here is some information from IRS.gov on a new tax scam involving SSN numbers. In the latest twist on a scam related to Social Security numbers, scammers claim to be able to suspend or cancel the victim’s SSN. Here’s what you should know.
