“I am a principal and founder of a 40 person law firm with a national practice. At this time I have stepped back from the day to day duty of managing the firm. I now also teach law practice management to graduating law students. Based on my thirty years experience in dealing with financial professionals and accountants, I would very highly recommend Gary Kaplan. Personally, I have used Mr. Kaplan to prepare, analyze and verify various financial documents including financial statements. I have utilized his services for financial planning, budget analysis and direction for new business bookkeeping startup; including information technology consulting. His direction has been right on, helping me avoid mistakes as well as saving me time and effort which I equate with saving money. His professional and moral judgment is beyond reproach.

“We were facing an IRS Audit and contacted Mr. Kaplan. We proceeded to hire him and he personally guided us through a very stressful process .Over the course of one month he assisted with gathering all the documentation needed for the IRS. He is focused, tenacious, disciplined, and above all cares about you and the outcome! The most impressive aspect is that he ,not an assistant, was in direct communication with us daily. He represented us at the audit and the result with the IRS was favorable, far better than anything I could have done and as good or better than an attorney.” – Suzanne Spinelli
“I met Gary Kaplan in 2013 when I engaged him to complete a federal income tax return on a business entity that I own. We have continued our business relationship through the present, and I have found Gary to be efficient and responsive in all matters, and I feel that his fees are reasonable.
In the fall of 2014 I had a situation with another business entity and accountant unrelated to anything Gary had previously been engaged. This involved the late filing of a federal tax return and tax payment by a few days, which the accounting firm involved had failed to inform me was due. Although this mistake was my responsibility, I was paying for professional tax preparation and representation, and I believe this also included proper notification on due dates.
Fortunately I found the error myself and paid the obligation within days, and the firm rushed an extension notice out and worked to complete the return. Unfortunately this did not appease the IRS, which subsequently demanded $250,000 in penalties and interest, which was the maximum amount that could be charged. It quickly became apparent to me that the existing firm handling the tax work was not up to the task of helping me with this matter, so I started thinking about hiring a tax attorney. I also called Gary to get his opinion of the situation. Gary informed me that he had significant audit and other experience in dealing with the IRS, and offered his services in lieu of or in addition to hiring an attorney.
After thinking about it, I determined that the facts of the case were pretty straightforward and there were a few extenuating circumstances, so I decided to hire Gary exclusively to represent me. The entire process took about one year, with Gary being involved for approximately 9 months. He was confident during the entire process, even as I was getting sick of the whole thing and willing to settle. His position was to win the case and not to settle until all other options had been exhausted.
After two appeals the IRS ruled in my favor, and all penalties and interest charges were removed. Having gone through this process, it is clear that experience with the process matters, as the IRS is not the easiest organization to deal with for a lot of reasons. Gary’s experience was critical to winning this case, and his fees were reasonable and worth every penny!
Based on my experience, I would highly recommend Gary Kaplan as a very qualified CPA for general accounting, tax and audit engagements. It has been a pleasure working with him and I intend to do so in the future.” – Kurt Younker
