My Father taught me the key to success is go that extra mile for your clients. I remember that every day. My reviews show I am serious about earning your business.
I have been a client of Alex Tong and Associates for about 5-years and they are the best in the business. Definitely 5-star rating for Alex and his very professional team. I have re-located to another city in Texas but continue to use Alex when it is time to prepare my Federal income taxes. They are easy to do business with, provide fast turn-around, and are reasonably priced. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS GROUP.
I highly recommend Alex Tong CPA..they have doing my taxes now for about 5 years..always professional and very courteous. Gets the job done in a very timely manner..I work from home and have many deductions to manage and have always been happy with my returns. MY husband now uses their services and extremely happy with the job well done!
Alex Tong and his team helped me move my business to Texas and assisted with my 2014 tax filing. It went great. Alex and Delores were exceptionally patient and accommodating of my insane work schedule. They took the time to help explain my situation and options with my business move and tax filing.
Advice on Trust. Also questions regarding IRS report. | |Very pleased with his and his associate's full attention, detailed advice, would highly recommend and will use in the future.
I usually do my taxes online with TaxAct since they are so easy, but this year I got hit with a 1099-B which required me to fill out an 8949 and 13 line items and TaxAct simply couldn't handle that. This is long term capital gains. I was going to go to a service when I got a letter from the IRS asking me to resubmit pages one and two of my return because they did not understand them. The letter was addressed to me and someone else. But I had filed!!! I called the IRS and they basically explained that someone had filed a return in my name and SSN asking for a refund, and that I would have to file a paper return with an identity theft form. That did it. With the 8949 and now this, I wanted a professional to handle my return. I went to Mr. Tong who said he gets three to four of these a year. Tax fraud is way up as it is a lot easier than trying to open accounts under your name. He explained he would do my return and that the 8949 would actually work in my favor because only I had this form. He would put a letter with all the forms and backup, send it to the IRS, they would look at mine, and then look at the defrauder, and accept mine. I was also thinking that mine was prepared by a CPA which gave it credibility, and the other wasn't. Once accepted, Mr. Tong explained that I would be issued a PIN number and that I would file future returns under that, so if anyone filed under my SSN, it would not be accepted. I left that day at the height of tax season, and got a call the next day that my return was done. Really? I also was told to bring my checkbook as I still owed a very small amount. I had to laugh. Who was the IRS going to believe, the guy wanting a $4,000.00 refund or the guy sending them money? Go figure. I went to Mr. Tong's office where he had everything ready, signed everything, gave him the check, and he took care of everything. He gave me a copy of everything he had done and my leftover forms back. The IRS must have accepted my return since my check cleared six days later. I cannot believe that I got such wonderful service with such a crisis three days before the filing deadline. I needed a professional to handle this problem and that is what I got. In my opinion, he was worth every penny I spent. My return was handled correctly and by a professional and it gave me peace of mind.
Just needed consultation on how to handle capital assets sale (stocks) on my income tax return which I had already pretty much completed but wanted clarification on what supporting forms were needed for reporting my income from sale of stocks. He was able to see me the following day and provide clear direction on how this was to be reported. $50 charge for about a half hour of consulting. Very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Appears his group supports business as well.
Mr. Tong did a great job. I made the appointment and he was ready for me. I gave him the documents he asked for and he had my return done the next day. He explained the return as compared to last year and answered all my questions. Thanks
Mr. Tong prepared our 2012 taxes for our business and personal. We have used Mr. Tong for 3 years now. He is very professional, accurate, and gets our taxes done in a timely manner. We are very happy with his services.
Mr. Tong is a wonderful CPA. Very knowledgeable and helpful. He is getting our buisness on the right track. Mr. Tong is too good for words. Thank you, Angie's List, for your help in finding him!
Prepare my 2012 taxes. Having used Mr. Tong’s service last year, it was a breeze calling to drop off my documents. His office was quick to email or call with any questions or concerns. Just a great overall experience. It means a great deal to me to have a such a professional organization making sure all my I’s are dotted and T’s crossed.
Very detailed consult about 2011 taxes, 2012 filings, and S-Corp filings. Very intricate. It went great. Alex was able to point me in the right direction, get us set up with an idea of what we need to do next and was more than willing to do the actual filings if we needed him to. Alex returned money to us via mail when we decided not to follow through with the plan~ we appreciated that! Thank you, Alex!
Mr. Tong prepared our 2010 income taxes. It was a professional experience. We spent a few minutes talking to Mr. Tong while he briefly reviewed our prior year returned and asked a few questions. We left our information, and about a week later, the documents were ready to approve and sign. He submitted the forms electronically on our behalf.
Did my taxes for 2010, I waited until a week before the deadline and when to firm, they got my taxes done and saved me money on taxes. I normally do my own taxes but had some complicated situation in 2010 that I did not know how to handle. Took info to Mr. Tong as week before tax deadline and he completed my taxes on time and was able to identify some deduction that I had overlooked. I will us his services in the future.
We consulted Alex for advice on what type of structure to set up for my husband's IC business, ways to minimize our tax liability, and best method for bookkeeping. He was very informative and helpful to a non-business person (me) and filed our LLC paperwork once we decided that was the best way to go. In addition, we've decided to retain him on an hourly basis for intermittent consultations to keep us on track with our bookkeeping and tax documentation. As a nurse, I am NOT business/accounting oriented, nor do I want to be. I was looking for someone to tell me what to do and how to do it without burning too many brain cells, lol! Alex fit the bill. He explained things in a way I could understand & hopefully he will help keep us on track with our bookkeeping. I would certainly recommend his services.
"Alex Tong has been much more to me than just a personal tax accountant. He's been a mentor, an incredible resource for ideas, and a friend. He's helped me with not only structuring my companies, but guiding me with where to put my money once it's been made. Many times I've wondered if I'm underpaying him and his people for their excellent and personal services."
"Alex Tong has become an invaluable part of my businesses. With the professional expertise and experience Alex Tong and his office provides, I rest assured that my businesses are structured efficiently, helping to reduce my tax liability, protect my assets and allow me as a small business owner to focus on growing my businesses. The peace of mind I have knowing Alex Tong has my best financial interests at heart allows me to highly recommend him and his office."

Met with Mr. Tong to solicit advice on a very complex tax issue regarding beneficiary IRA accounts. Mr. Tong quickly analyzed the problem and came up with a solution which was unique and very clever. I have used other accountant services in the past and was usually disappointed with their advice. My experience with Mr. Alex Tong was quite the opposite. His solution was BRILLIANT. I could not be more pleased. I will race back to his firm with any future problems or service needs. His administrative staff was also very helpful and professional.
The staff and management at this firm are experienced, very current on IRS processes, and always polite and professional. They've demonstrated an impressive skill level with tax software as well as IRS policies and procedures. They willingly answer questions in everyday terms (that I appreciate). Alex has an "OPEN DOOR" policy that means a lot to me. Email communications with them are timely and accurate, and they always meet their goals for project completion. My account with them would be considered small, but they make me feel like it's as important as a major client. And, if IRS wants to question something I claimed or they actually challenge a deduction, this is the CPA group I would want as my advocate and responder. Finally, they show tangible appreciation for my business by applying a loyalty discount to my invoice. This also matters to me. FIVE STARS!!!

Alex was great. I've been going to another CPA for the past couple of years and Alex blows him out of the water. He finished my taxes in 3 or 4 days and I was shocked because I have a lot of stuff. He is very intelligent and professional. I highly recommend him.
I honestly cannot describe how grateful my wife Lindsey and I are to Alex Tong, and his entire staff at his CPA office. We needed an expert to get us through a tough spot with the IRS, and he knew EXACTLY what to do, and got all of our paperwork done lightning fast. His knowledge and expert advise helped make my wife and I calm, and we are now completely cleared up out of the gigantic mess we were in. If you doubt going to a CPA, don't, especially Alex. I have used a few other CPA's in the past, and honest to God, not one of them hold a torch to what Alex and his staff are. Thank you Alex, you have a customer for life. No matter if I am in Dallas, New York, Cincinnati, or Los Angeles, I will always use Alex Tong CPA.
As a self-employed individual, I was referred to Alex Tong in 2004, at which time he incorporated two of my businesses. In the last 7 years, Alex Tong and his staff have acted in a professional manner, and provided top notch service that has helped me increase business profits as well as streamline my accounting and internal business practices. I highly recommend Alex Tong for anyone, from the simple things such as personal tax returns to the complex, such as structuring businesses and partnerships.

Being the first time to file since becoming a landlord, Mr. Tong was great. When I arrived at his office, thinking I didn't even know what questions to ask, he put me right at ease. He was professional, patient and very understanding, making sure I had all my "I"s dotted and "T"s crossed. It was a very pleasant experience and look forward to doing business with Mr. Tong again.
This past year I had a lot of problems with my taxes and I was trying to find the perfect company to help me. I went to numerous other companies, but only Alex Tong CPA and Assoc. knew how to help me the right way.
Alex Tong CPA and Associates is the best decision I ever made with my taxes. I had so many questions and problems, but they knew all the answers and solutions. They took care of any problems and had speedy service.

I have used Alex Tong for my tax services for about 5 years now, for both my personal and businesses taxes and am very happy with the results. He is always professional and fast. I love the fact that he always uses the latest technology and everything I do with him can be done electronically. On top of that, he always makes himself available for phone calls even during tax season.
Once I sat down with Alex I found myself very comfortable that my company was in good hands. AND he backed it up.......pre Alex the IRS had my tab at 100K post Alex it was down to 6K! I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed but this was a true no brainer. I wish I could find a mechanic that had as much integrity.
