super-helpful from all the way across

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.

Extraordinary Service for Tax Preparation and Small Business Assistance

Chrissy and the rest of the team have been outstanding in every way. With all of the incredible changes we've had to endure in 2020, between changes to the tax system and working through the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the service provided by Cotton Mather has been nothing but exceptional.

Chrissy was able to file our taxes quickly and thoroughly while helping us understand the opportunities available to us, not only on a personal level but for our small business as well. Without Chrissy and Cotton Mather, we would not be where we are today feeling optimistic about our futures. The time and dedication that Chrissy has given to make sure that we're taken care of shows just how phenomenal their service truly is.

Whether your questions relate to personal taxes or small business assistance, I cannot recommend their services enough. Reach out to them today and you'll see why it's the best investment you could ever make.

Fantastic service

Cotton is fantastic. He has prepared my taxes for the past 7 years. I throw all my statements in an envelope and ship it off. A few days later, he returns everything in a fabulously, neat folder that details everything in spectacular fashion with little sticker arrows telling me exactly what to do! I love it! He is a true professional. I recommend Cotton in the highest of terms!

Highest Possible Recommendation

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..

Why Didn't I Find This Sooner

Wow should you check this out! As my family's life got more complicated, with more kids and starting an additional side business on top of our jobs, I grew tired of going to the local H&R Block because I felt like I was paying a ton for what was just a tax preparer. I searched around the North Hills and ended up hearing good things about Cotton Mather. I met with Chrissy and was blown away. We had conversations about tax savings and strategies for our small business and the tax prep work was three times as professional - she took the time to explain how things worked and where my savings came from. On top of that, she was personal, funny, and engaged. And after all of that, it ended up costing less than I did at my old place!! If you have anything beyond a basic single person W-2 form, you absolutely get a world better service for far less here. CANNOT recommend highly enough!!

Have used Cotton and his staff for a number of years and I find each of them extremely easy to work with and very efficient and timely in both responses to questions i have posed as well as the timely fashion in which they prepare the returns and file the final forms I have recommended them to a number of friends and have found that they also are very satisfied as well. You will quickly find that you are not the first person to have the problem you think you have. They are a wonderful staff top to bottom.

No regrets

Ever since my first business venture back in the 80's, I always did my own taxes. A few years ago we started an LLC and I figured it was time to turn it over to the professionals. I chose Cotton Mather and have been working with Chrissy. This year I even turned over our personal return! She is prompt, communicates well and the firm uses technology to expedite the sharing of information. I have no regrets and will probably live longer with the reduced stress at tax time!

I known Cotton since the late 70’s. I have always found him to be honest, accurate and prompt.

He has been my tax adviser and tax preparer for years. I find his website to be ful of useful information.

I highly recommend he and staff for all your accounting needs. NONE BETTER!

Yes Cotton is a great CPA...MORE important Cotton is a great person!!

A person who cares, there is none better.
