Professional and friendly service. Very pleasant experience for me. Looks like I’ll be turning all my tedious tax and accounting work to this fine firm. Found them on Angie’s list with high marks and recommendations. Thanks Bud!!

Doubled my refund!

I thought the Tax Pro Buddy schtic was a little corny – until I met him and realized his name is Bud and he is actually a Tax Pro – and once he doubled my refund (I went to him for a second opinion). Now he is my Tax Pro Buddy too 🙂

Best accountant in Cape Coral

Bud Krater is the best accountant in Cape Coral in my opinion. I am a small business owner myself and have talked with my share of accountants, book keepers, and tax preps and none have displayed an array of tax knowledge as broad as Buds. Bud Krater is more than a tax buddy, he is the business owners friend.

Mark Cass

Great for small businesses

Bud Krater is one of the best accountants and book keepers I have ever talked to. I own a small business so, keeping my books straight is certainly a priority for me, as well as not getting gouged at the end of the year in taxes. Bud Krater see to it that that doesn’t happen. Thanks Bud.

Elizabeth Dunby

Victim of identity theft?

This is a highly experienced and professional tax service is also a caring and friendly group of tax experts. my Mom was a victim of ID theft. When Bud filed her taxes he discovered that the thieves had gotten a tax refund from my Moms ID info. Mom was already stressed from having had money, jewelry and even her pocketbook stolen at her asst. living home. Bud quickly took care of her problem with the IRS and her tax files. Mom and I were both very relieved to have this sticky issue taken care of so quickly and easily.

Excellent bookkeeper

Bud Krater is excellent. My old bookkeeper had become complacent and I showed Bud my books and he found several errs right off the bat and helped me save several hundred dollars and this was in the first 5 minutes. He has alot of experience and knowledge and is an overall great guy. Says what he does and does what he says.
