To sum it up, he is easy to get along with, flexible, and reliable. Pete, you are a role model on how a small business should operate!"

"... he's always available"
"Pete is a blessing to our company! We started an HVAC company in 2011 and have used Pete since the start. We put all our trust in Pete when it comes to our business finances and we are never disappointed. He is always available and answers all of our questions in terms we can understand. He is very knowledgeable and very personal. We truly trust Pete and honor his ideas for our company. We would never go anywhere else. Pete truly is a blessing to our company!

"... extremely accommodating of my hectic schedule"
"My companies have worked with Pete for a number of years now. He is extremely accommodating of my hectic schedule and quickly adapts to my pace. I have called Pete at various times to look up information for me while I was on the go; every time I am in need of any assistance he happily obliges. Not only do I like his attention to detail and able advice I also like to work with someone as humble and professional as he. I have recommended him in the past and will continue to do so."

"...painless and easy to deal with"
"As a newly self-employed person, Pete's tax expertise made the new tax variables facing me painless and easy to deal with. With one short meeting, Pete assuaged any anxieties I felt and explained everything I needed to know in simple layman's terms. I highly recommend Pete for your tax and bookkeeping needs."

"... saved me 3 times the cost of his fees"
"Pete has been a fantastic asset for my small business needs as well as my own personal needs in navigating the labyrinthine tax structure at both the federal and state level. He has historically saved me 3 times the cost of his fees. Pete is an exceptional tax advisor, and I highly recommend him to anyone desiring to have a professionally competent and ethical ally in that mysterious place known as "tax world."

" ... going to a retail tax office seems unimaginable"
"I have had 3 years of excellent service from Pete. He is by far the friendliest, most informative tax professional I have ever had the privilege of using. He helped us when we owned our restaurant business, and we will continue to use his services for our personal taxes for however long he continues to offer them. Going back to a retail tax office just seems unimaginable after being treated so well, keep up the good work Pete!"

"... the best in the business"
"Pete is the best in the business. When my previous tax specialist passed away unexpectedly leaving my taxes half finished, a friend recommended giving Pete a call. He was able to pick up the pieces of my return and had me ready to file in no time. We've been doing business ever since. Thanks Pete!"

"... the best tax preparer I've ever had"
Pete has provided me with friendly, reliable tax services for several years. As a freelance writer with no inclination toward numbers, I require someone who can find all my deductions, estimate my quarterlies, and help me legally pay my vendors without stressing me out in any way, and Pete does the job admirably. He's the best tax preparer I've ever had!

"... he's never too busy to help"
"I moved to Vail Arizona 4 years ago from Ohio where I had a successful pool table service and what I thought was a very good accountant. I was referred to Pete and he showed me a lot that my old accountant in Ohio never did. I'm just now starting my billiard service out here in Southern Arizona and I know I can rely on Pete whenever I have questions. He's never too busy to help."

"... the quality of his service is among the best"
"We started using Pete for our business filings a few years ago and his efficiency proved to be such that we decided that it was the best move to use him for our personal taxes as well. Since the first year we have come to trust Pete and we feel the personal attention that he provides and the quality of his service is among the best. We look forward to working with Pete for years to come!

"... his knowledge and resources are priceless!"
"My experience with Pete has been a very helpful and rewarding. The knowledge and resources that Pete offers are priceless. As my business has grown, Pete has been there every step of the way to guide me in the right direction. Knowing that my financial guidance is in good hands gives me the time to focus on the other aspects of my business. My time is never wasted when it comes to my financial needs. I really appreciate Pete’s services. Thank You Pete!"

" ... the largest tax refund I’ve ever received"
“ I used Pete's services for the first time for my 2005 tax return, which was the largest tax refund I’ve ever received. He made several helpful recommendations regarding my finances and he was very easy to work with. The service was great and I would recommend him without reservation to all my friends”

" ... I received my return the next day!"

" I had Pete prepare my taxes, and I was impressed with his turnaround. I received my return the next day. I will be using him in the future. GREAT JOB! Thanks Pete!!"

" ... he found deductions I didn't know were available!"
" Pete did a great job on my taxes, he found deductions I didn't know were available, and I received a larger return. He is up on the latest tax information, and is very conscientious and professional. It was a pleasure and very reassuring having Pete do my taxes for me."

"… I waited until the busiest time of year"
I’ve known Pete Corrao for over 20 years and I knew that his attention to detail in his graphics training would carry over into his tax business. He made sure all my deductions were correct and accounted for and, even though I’d waited until the busiest time of year; he had my return to me within a week. I really appreciate his knowledge and confidence.

" I get the personal interaction I need."
" Up until two years ago, I completed my own taxes with an on-line tax service. Even though I followed a step by step process, I never understood the purpose of each step nor felt that I was getting all of the benefits that were available by law. However, with Pete's help, I get the personal interaction I need, I feel confident that I've got an up-to-date expert working for me, and I haven't lost any time with the filing process. Thanks Pete, I do appreciate your help!"

" He was fast, ... and I got a ton of money back too!"
" As a busy freelance designer, I don't have the time or the aptitude for managing my tax preparation. Pete handled our taxes quickly and correctly so that I could concentrate on my clients. He was fast, accurate, and I got a ton of money back too. I will certainly be contacting him for my taxes this year!"

" Pete has saved me lots of money over the years"
" I have been using Pete to do my taxes for years. He is fast, professional, accurate, honest, and he stays current with the new laws. Sure, I can do my own taxes, but using Pete has saved me lots of money over the years. That leaves more time for me to do what I am good at: creating works of art."

Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT)

The two TAX forms you received in the mail from the city of Tucson and the state of Arizona must be filed every month! They're called the transaction Privilege Tax (or TPT) forms, and they are how the city and state collect taxes from your business. These complicated forms can drive you nuts, but they must be filed every month, even if you had no revenue.

Send me your TPT forms and I'll calculate the tax due and fill out the city and state forms. You just sign them and send them in! My rates are reasonable, what's your time worth?
