Hi, my name is John Teglash, EA and I enjoy the challenge of preparing tax returns.
65 Briarwood Lane
Grand island NY 14072
I was employed at IRS for 11 years where I was involved in various programs such as tax law research, injured & innocent spouse program, collections and electronic filing. I enjoy the challenge of preparing taxes. If I don't know the answer to your question, I will tell you up front. I will then network myself to get the answer, mainly through various IRS sources. I'm currently employed by US Customs as a Senior Auditor. I also prepare taxes for low income family as a volunteer. I prepare, on average, 600 tax returns each year. I have preparing tax returns for over 24 years.
q & a
What characteristics do your favorite clients share?
They provide full disclosure on all their investments and goals for their future. They are interested in reducing their tax burden and ask for suggestions.
Why should a client hire you?
I'm very conscientious when preparing taxes and give 100% to all my clients. Clients can call me anytime during the year for tax advice without any charge. I try to create a friendship with all my clients; not just a service.
Describe a time where you went beyond expectations when working with a client.
I provide a service that goes the extra mile for all my clients. My service includes all correspondence to IRS and state returns.
What single project or task would you consider your most significant accomplishment in your career to date?
I manage a volunteer income tax site that I started 14 years ago that is currently one of the largest and productive sites in the Buffalo, NY area.

I prepare all returns as of they were my own.
I service a variety of clients. I also address all IRS correspondence including audits and hardship issues. Since I left IRS to pursue better opportunity in 2001, my business has grown to over 175 clients in 14 years. Because I work full time, my rates are below the industry rates charged by other professionals.
