Bookkeeping and taxes done right. The team at Meadows are spectacular, and unlike some other bookeepers and CPAs, these guys give you 0 headaches. Will continue doing business with them throughout the year and trust them with our taxes for the foreseeable future.
JJ has done amazing things for me and my taxes! I had some issues with my business AND personal schedule C, which she corrected so quickly. I tell everyone to go here!

Let me say how Awesome Meadows Accounting and tax services truly are ! I had a mess that was created by a online tax service and a lot of mistakes I've made in the past years ! The IRS wanted my back tax information for several years , and with the professional help that I received from Meddows was just unbelievable they took the load off of my back and took all my mess that was created and was able to get everything solved in no time! And once we thought everything was done here comes the IRS looking for another years tax filing that they said was rejected , Jennifer found something that saved me a lot of money , the patience that Jennifer and JJ had with me was just so wonderful the pressure they took off of me by taking on this work was just amazing I'm so grateful for what they have done to make my life a lot less stressful ! I promise i won't go any other place to have my taxes done in the future , Meadows is the place to take all your accounting and tax business especially if you want your them done right! and where the staff has your back when issues start coming in from the IRS , very professional/ intelligent and very pleasant to work with thank you JJ and Jennifer for helping me to take a fresh breath of air by you handling my Headache ,i cant say enough about Meadows !

I have used Meadows tax service for over 10 years. I didn't realize they had changed ownership until I called to make an appointment regarding my taxes. I wasn't sure what to expect but they exceeded my expectations! Rick and Jennifer were both warm, accommodating and friendly. My taxes were done several days earlier than I had been told because they knew I needed them to make an appointment with a lender. I can't say enough about how pleased I was with their service. I will absolutely be going back to them next year and I recommend them highly!
