The most significant improvements/benefits are that we now have Mr. Cain and Mr. Hanley that we can depend on not only for advice but to know that they are current with all the new and old tax regulations and what needs to be done to properly report our extensive real estate holdings, GST Trusts and LLCs. We encouraged our daughter and her husband to leave their tax preparer and engage our new team at SLD to prepare their returns and the trust returns for their minor children. As a family we would recommend SLD since we have been satisfied with the service and attention we have received for several years now and for the ‘peace of mind’ knowing that our business needs are in the hands of true professionals.
