FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions

We know how busy you are, so we have answered our most common questions here. The rest can be found on the FAQ page.

Are you taking on new Tax Clients?2020-11-26T16:05:39-05:00

We are always excited to talk to business owners about their accounting needs. If we are a good fit for your organization, we will work to rapidly on-board you. Depending on the complexity of your return, we will work together to determine if we need to file an extension or file on the original deadline.

Do I work with Bette or someone else?2020-11-26T16:02:45-05:00

As a boutique firm, I try to work with all of my clients directly. We’ll work together to talk throughout the year and identify your needs. Around tax deadlines I may not be available for unscheduled phone calls, but I’m always reachable via email.

I got a letter from the IRS, can you help me?2021-10-07T21:59:13-04:00

Almost definitely, we handle most areas of IRS Resolution Matters that normal people and business owners encounter. Schedule a meeting with me, mention the letter. If you have a scanner, that’s the best resolution, but for everyone else, your phone works fine. Ask Google for the latest method of using Document Scan mode for your iPhone or Android, then email me the file, so we can discuss it on your call.

What is involved in moving to Florida?2021-03-01T19:41:19-05:00

Moving to Florida? Purchase or rent a place to live. The tricky part is making sure that your former state can’t tax you or your business. We help our new clients move their entire financial lives, preventing their old states from taxing them.

Testimonials

We do right by our clients… and it shows!

Odelia Goldberg, Esquire

I referred several clients to Bette for tax and estate planning work and every time, they came back with positive comments. Bette takes the time to really understand the issues. In one instance, my client had a very complicated tax issue, spanning multiple years and various investment tools. Bette, with her expertise and patience, was able to substantially reduce my clients’ exposure. I highly recommend Bette to anyone and feel fortunate to have her on my team.

Odelia Goldberg, Esquire, Law Offices of Odelia Goldberg

Bette and her team, especially Jordan have been instrumental in assisting our company as a fractional CFO, Bookkeeping, HR as well as taxes. Her team can do it all and is very prompt, knowledgeable, efficient and has a client-first approach that is so refreshing! I would highly recommend their services to any startup!

Joe Sosa, Kashkick
Steve Erlich, CEO

I have worked with Bette Hochberger for years as my business and personal accountant. She has an uncanny ability to handle complicated tax matters and simplify them to help us make better decisions. Her background in engineering and business administration has helped us set up our books in such a way to keep our tax filing costs down while generating useful managerial reports. We’re one of the few small businesses in our industry that have a strong accrual reporting system, which gives us a competitive edge by truly understanding our economics. She has managed my business returns for a variety of LLCs and S-Corporation, and has helped us structure our businesses to reduce complexity, isolate liability, and maximize our profits. I consider her a critical part of my business team.

Steve Ehrlich, Return Marketing, Inc.
Bette is supremely knowledgeable in helping home based businesses in their tax preparation. She taught a workshop on Money Management for these business professionals so they could learn good habits and also maximize their tax benefits. Her expertise, professionalism, & business acumen make her a wonderful resource to any business owner.

Bette is a conscientious and diligent accountant. More than that, she acts like a real stakeholder in our company. She also brings a unique entrepreneurial spirit to her work which is hard to come by with accountants! I have greatly appreciated her work and her commitment to our team.

I can’t recommend Bette Hochberger enough! If you need an accountant (particularly if you are a trader, crypto- badass, consultant, RE agent or finance professional) her team is pretty amazing!

A combination of friendly personalized service, knowledge and speed is a rarity in most cases. But with Bette, it’s standard practice. Whether you’re a seasoned tax payer with knowledge of all the ins and outs, or a novice with limited knowledge, Bette will take on the ownership you expect and require. In my case as a brand new business owner, Bette went above and beyond to take uncertainty away and guide me through all that would benefit me. I can’t say enough about her. I have already referred her to several friends and families and will continue those referrals because she really IS that good.
