I wish I could have added to all the 5-star reviews here but apparently Ron doesn’t want to work with me. This is the extent of our interactions:
1- I saw these glowing reviews, checked out his website, contacted him via the form.
2- Next day he emailed back (speedy, good sign). He needed more info and verbatim, “I do charge for tax planning.
It is currently $175.” Well alright maybe my questions are more complex. (BTW, someone wrote this in another review which just cannot be accurate then: “It turns out he bills only when he runs numbers and working on your tax return.”)
3 – I responded and asked him what specifically comes with tax planning, and how much he also charges for tax return filing.
I figured these are going to be separate charges. Then I gave some more bg info to my questions; so as to be fairly clear I’m *willing* to pay for the initial consult, I said: “Look forward to hearing from you.
We can discuss the questions when we meet, just wanted you to have them so you have an idea of what I’m looking for. Thank you!”
Never heard back after that. I seriously was never trying to get a free consult here, as that’s too good to be true and understandably I’m not a personal referral like some of the other reviewers here.
But ugh, I feel pretty mislead coming from.
