Joe Mastriano, CPAJoe Mastriano, CPA

Joe graduated Magna Cum Laude from one of the top state schools in New York, SUNY at Buffalo. After working for Arthur Young, a big 8 accounting firm, among others, he started his CPA firm in 1980. After the first few years specializing in taxpayer representation, the firm became a referral source for other CPA’s and attorneys. Over the last 38 years Joe has helped people resolve their most difficult tax matters. He has also helped many people overcome their issues causing them to not file, owe taxes, be audited, and in general, not feel the joy and excitement they did when they first started their profession or their business. Joe says that poor accounting records, unfiled returns, overpaying taxes, allowing yourself to be audited, and feeling that your job or business is a chore, are symptoms of something much greater. He says “let’s put an end to this now. Let’s fix what’s wrong and let our professions (jobs) and businesses be an empowering force in our lives”. Call us now, before the IRS gets to you first.

Today he is sought out by people who have hired other companies who made wild promises of results. These people are now worse off after spending thousands of dollars foolishly. He teaches them to look past the promised claims of results, and understand not to trust companies unless they are professionally licensed by the state they are in. Statements such as “We have over 50 years combined experience.” “We work the fastest or your money back.” “We can definitely get you an offer for X amount of dollars.” must be examined closely. Is there a licensed professional firm making the statement? Does it make sense? Many claims of results by licensed professional firms are unethical.
Are these people in business to take advantage of your tax situation? Are they experienced and knowledgeable enough to help you guide your company to success? Over 90% of payment plans with the IRS fail. Joe stands for “Ethical, Professional, Experienced, Results”. Do not settle for less!

His clients have experienced amazing success in their personal and business lives. You can too.

Whether it’s bookkeeping, foreign income, contract labor, or structuring companies, she will know what to do. So let her save you money on your taxes, while helping you make money in your business. All this without an extra risk of an audit. Ask her why most tax returns are “audits waiting to happen”, and why you would be crazy not to have her do your returns. She may just tell you why her returns have not been audited. » Robin@taxproblem.org

Ellatrice TylerEllatrice Tyler

Prior to working here, Ellatrice had been listening to her cousin Stephanie brag about how great her job is. But Ellatrice was already happy with her job. She was an equipment recovery specialist, servicing accounts, helping them find solutions to purchasing and paying for equipment. When the company shut down, she was forced to look elsewhere. When she applied to our firm, Joe and Stephanie were both delighted. After finding out that she studied accounting in school and did tax returns during the 2017 tax season, we were happy that she knew something about our business. Ellatrice is Linda’s executive assistant, and understands what is needed to manage cases. Coupling that with her customer service skills helping people find solutions, we felt that it was a perfect match. She sets appointments and handles client issues.» Ellatrice@taxproblem.org
