Financial 1 Tax - 5 Star Experience

Above and Beyond

“I have used Financial 1 for 2 years now and I so pleased and blessed to having used them. Tatyana has always went above and beyond to work out my taxes and help my wife and I meeting our financial worth. Thank you Tatyana.”

– RICHARD R. from Santa Maria, CA


Knowledge, Professionalism and Kindness

“What can I say but wow. I researched several tax preparers in the area and none had the rave reviews as Financial 1. What an impression they made on me for my first time using a tax preparer. I got a appt right away and was impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and kindness. I had a complex tax situation this year and they did a awesome job! I got my taxes done in less than a week and I got a refunds and owed nothing this year. I can’t say enough about Tatyana and Jessie. Their fees were below what others were asking for as I asked around and did my research. It was a win-win outcome for me and I couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend them and will be back next year!”

– AMY P. from Elkridge, MD


Peace of Mind

“I am so thankful that I found Tatyana at Financial 1, when I came to Tatyana I had somehow messed up my online tax return and it appeared as though I would owe federal and state taxes equal to about 8 thousand dollars. I could not figure out what I had done wrong, if anything. I was able to send all my documents to Tatyana via secure emails and discussions over the phone and she was able to sort out my taxes as well as amend an already submitted return my husband had made. I know this was so much work and so much untangling for her to do, but she did it quickly and was able to explain everything to me. Not only was she able to make sense of the mess we had made in trying to file our own taxes, but she was able to get us a return of about 5,000 dollars! The extra money is such a wonderful surprise but what is equally as exciting is the peace of mind that I now have knowing that my taxes were filed correctly. I will be returning to use Tatyana to prepare our future tax returns. I am aware there are some negative reviews but I must say that our experience was nothing but positive from start to finish. I am so appreciative of Tatyana’s help. Thank you!”

– SHAELYN N. from Baltimore, MD


Will Come Back Next Year

“Tatyana help me reduce the amount of taxes, very knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend her and will come back next year.”

– ED O. from San Jose, CA


Exceptional Service, Fast and So Helpful

“You can’t go wrong here. Exceptional service, fast and so helpful. The staff guide you through the process easily and prepare and file your return quickly. Look no further for help. This is your best and only choice.”

– PATRICIA M. from Sykesville, MD


Definitely Recommend

“I went to Tatyana for an initial consultation and to discuss the services she provides and was very please with her professional manner as well as her directness. I would definitely recommend her.”

– JENNIFER N. from Columbia, MD


Always Great

“I’ve been working with Tatiana for a few years and the service is always great. Friendly staff, too.”

– JEFF D. from Glyndon, MD


Helpful and Easy

“Very helpful and easy to work with. Explained all the details and provided advice for the future. Will definitely go back every year!”

– TEJA G. from Cupertino, CA


A Breath of Fresh Air

“As a new client, I could not be happier with the service I received from Financial 1. Tatyana is professional, efficient, and answered all of my questions. After using another tax firm in the past and being extremely disappointed, this was a breath of fresh air! She had my returns ready in 7 days and her fee is extremely reasonable.”

– ERICA J. from Highland, MD


The Right Tax Help

“First time use of any tax service and was very pleased with the quick review and tax guidance. Tatyana quickly noted a mistake I had made and clarified some questions I had concerning my 2017 taxes…an unusually complicated year involving significant extra income and a marriage joining two homes. Since I am a relatively savvy tax preparer at age 54, I didn’t feel comfortable leveraging your average H&R Block or other quick conveyor belt trained tax preparer. Not only did I make the right tax help choice but we will also leverage the firm to handle our wills and will potentially invest in their active wealth management portfolio.”

– BULL M. from Jacksonville, FL


Upfront and Honest

“My wife and I went to Financial 1 for a tax consultation and, after a review, Tatyana was very upfront and honest in telling me that she believed we had done our taxes properly and that there would not be much benefit from professional preparation. Her honesty about the situation was very refreshing and we will happily be going back to see her about the other services offered by Financial 1.”

– TIM R. from Ellicott City, MD


Best Tax Preparation in Maryland!

“I went to Tatyana for help with preparing my taxes and she did a phenomenal job… she was incredibly flexible and responsive, meeting with me multiple times in a few short days. Her work was exceptional. You could not have asked for faster turnaround from a true professional. Her work is beyond a cut above the competition. I am very impressed with her professionalism, intelligence and the client experience that she provided. I would recommend absolutely everyone to reach out to her for help. There is not a better place to go within the industry.”

– MATT P. from Columbia, MD


Great Experience

“Great experience with Tatyana so far! First year doing taxes with her and everything was smooth and fast despite us having a complicated return. Definitely recommend.”

– HILLARY G. from Woodstock, VA


Very Knowledgeable and Friendly

“Tatyana was great!! She’s very knowledgeable and friendly. I know who’s doing my taxes next year…”

– SHAWN Y. from Odenton, MD


The Best Financial Advisor!

“Tatyana is THE BEST financial adviser and tax preparer my husband and I have ever had. We have thrown so much at her every year, and she has tackled our challenges with smiles and professionalism. I totally trust her with our finances, including advice for debt free living, business and personal preparations and information. I rest easy knowing she will handle all our needs, and she is not just a once a year tax preparer, she is my financial consultant 365 days a year!”

– CHARLENE R. from The Clay Ground Studio & Gallery


Thank You – Truly Valued Your Advice

“Thank you for taking great care of my mom. She truly valued your advice and knowledge. I know that made dealing with everything a little easier for her to handle. She always shared kind and sweet words about you… I just wanted to express my gratitude to you for everything you did to help her.”

– CINDY CALLAHAN, for her dear mother Joyce


Excellent Service!

“Financial 1 Tax Services is one of the most knowledgeable and personable financial advisors I have ever worked with. Their expertise and trustworthiness are truly extraordinary.”

– TOM HOOG from Longmont, CO


High Quality

“I am grateful for all the hard work and high quality service that Financial 1 provides. This company has done an excellent job preparing my taxes for the last 11 years. I look forward to working with Financial 1 for many years to come.”

– HUGH GRAN from New York, NY


Highly Recommended

“Financial 1 Tax Services provides extensive background and knowledge of the industry enabling the company to see the big picture. They have been preparing my taxes for 5 years and have looked after my best interest. I highly recommend Financial 1 Tax Services.”

– RUTH BELT from Baltimore, MD


Affordable and Professional

“We tried free tax services that were available in 2010 because of not having the funds to pay for taxes.. But it turned out that we would owe around $2,000 in taxes. So we contacted Financial 1 Tax Services. Our tax representative, Tatyana Bunich, found all the legal deductions that was available for us. As a result, instead of owing taxes, we were able to get a refund of over $1700. It is hard to find people who work hard at getting you the best possible refund. We found that one, and plan to keep her. We really appreciated her honest efforts and professionalism. We intend to go back to her again & again & again… The price she charges for tax preparation is affordable and reasonable. Thank you!”

– RONNIE AND MARY


Incredible

“Financial 1 is an incredible company. They not only prepared my taxes in a most efficient manner, but they also performed a detailed analysis of my retirement funds and made valuable recommendations that resulted in my retirement funds increasing in value. I highly recommend Financial 1 for superior tax and investment advice.”

– CAROLYN Y. from Westminster, MD

Very Grateful

“Tatyana at Financial 1 Tax in Columbia Maryland rocks!!! I’m a contractor that works overseas and my taxes became a little too complicated to do myself using turbotax. After a previous audit by the IRS and state of Maryland I decided to trust the expertise and professionalism of Tatyana at Financial 1 Tax to complete my taxes and give me peace of mind to ensure they’re done right… the price that I was charged was 30% to 40% less than most of the CPAs that I talked to. Tatyana is a pleasure and responded to all of my questions, whether big or small within hours–it’s quite impressive especially during tax season. I highly recommend Tatyana at Financial1 Tax in Columbia Maryland and am very grateful to the person who recommended them to me!”

– GUMBO J. from San Francisco, CA


Saved Me So Much

“Wow. They saved me soooo much on my taxes. I was blown away. I was doing my own taxes on turbo tax and it was looking like I would owe thousands of dollars. Tatyana saved me all that. She is a tax genius. They are all very efficient and Pro Fessional!!! I was in and out in Minutes, literally. I got some estimates from other tax services and they were about half the cost. So less expensive awesome service which saved me a ton on my taxes. I’ll be back for sure. Great job, thanks!!!!!”

Phenomenal Job

Great Insight for My Business

She completed both of the returns over one weekend!

I highly recommend anyone to contact her for both personal and small business tax preparation.”

She takes the time to understand exactly what your financial goals are and works with you to create a road map to achieve them. She has helped me to increase my retirement portfolio. What I like most about working with her is that she provides you with all the options and allow you to decide which options works best for you. I would highly recommend her!”

– D. MCCLOUD from Columbia, MD


Great Service

– ROSE M. from Columbia, MD


Honest and Caring

“I would like to thank Tatyana Bunich for the superior service she has provided me with my taxes and my financial matters. She has been processing our tax returns for 5 years. We never have to worry about our returns being correct and they are always handled in a timely matter. Recently I made a decision to explore some options for my retirement savings. I always keep the money in CD’s which provide almost zero return. Tatyana provided me with some options. She did not pressure my decision, but explained everything so that I could make the best decision. I am not a risk taker and she understood that. I was able to select a plan that I was comfortable with and look forward to seeing the increase in my interest. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs an honest person to assist them with their financial matters. When she speaks, she doesn’t see a client as a dollar sign. She sees you and meets you where you are in your needs and expectations. But, he most important thing is her honest and caring demeanor.”
