My father-in-law has been getting his taxes done with Christine at Cromwell Tax & Bookkeeping for several years, and has been very happy with their service. This year my husband and I decided to bite the bullet and get a tax accountant. I am so very glad that Madelyne, Christine’s daughter, is handling our taxes now. Our aunt just died and we were so overwhelmed with her taxes, but Madelyne eased our fears immediately. She got everything organized and knew exactly what to do.

Also, I have a new career and a kid in college. We had been doing our taxes online (with Tax Act) for years to save money. Madelyn helped us so much this year by helping us get all the tax breaks we could. For once, we got a good IRS refund, and we were so relieved that Cromwell’s rates are so reasonable.

Their family business office is home-like and the staff is efficient and friendly. The parking is painless. Madelyn saw us on time for the appointment, so we didn’t have to wait and stress out more. They had a candy jar with free chocolate (this is my favorite panacea for stress).

Thank you, Madelyn, for making a scary time of year bearable, and even pleasant, for us!

Cromwell Tax & Bookkeeping is absolutely fantastic.  My business has been growing, so I needed to add an employee.  I didn’t know the first thing about the proper forms or paperwork I had to fill out.  The staff at Cromwell Tax & Bookkeeping helped me out, kept me informed during every step of the process, and the fees were incredibly reasonable.  I look forward to working with them for years to come.

I can’t say enough about Cromwell Tax and Bookkeeping. I have never had my taxes done by someone else before, so I wasn’t sure how the process would go. It was easy to set up an appointment, and when I met with Madelyne Cromwell she alleviated any worries I had. She was able to help me sort though everything, and had recommendations for me as this was my first year making a real profit with my small business (yay!). Along the way she was in communication about what else she needed and why, and it was all so easy! Her and her team even helped me set up estimated taxes and logged my business info into my QuickBooks file. I highly recommend this business and will using again next tax year!

I recently started a small business and found Cromwell Tax & Bookkeeping via Yelp. I met Madelyne in person and she was extremely helpful with recommending what I needed to do to get my business up and running from a financial perspective.

She and her team (thanks Niya!) have been invaluable in letting me focus on getting my business off the ground and not having to worry about learning how to be a bookkeeper at the same time. They take care of everything for me and send me the information I need.

Highly recommended to anyone who’s considering using a third-party accounting and bookkeeping service.

I can’t tell you how much money Christine and her staff have saved me over the last 12 years. Extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with on both personal taxes and my business accounting. Be sure to ask what the difference is between an Enrolled Agent and a CPA, and then look at the difference in cost. Outstanding value to be found here (and less stress and worry, too — at least for me). No regrets leaving my CPA, and I’ve never looked back.
