I started filing my taxes with Cel about five years ago and couldn't have made a better choice. He is so responsive, even when I have questions for my clients that have not retained him he's always so helpful. If you are looking for someone that is knowledgeable and responsive hire Cel. More...

My wife and I have been going to the Tax Shop for over 7 years and Cel and his expert team have consistently delivered excellent tax preparation and financial planning for us. Cel is constantly staying up-to-date and knowledgeable about new and upcoming tax laws, great ways to save for retirement, and how to plan for the future. If you are looking for professional tax preparation and financial planning services, I highly recommend giving Cel and his team a call. More...

I've trusted Cel with my taxes for many years.  He's a great tax accountant, superbly skilled and dedicated to his customers.  He gives 110%.  Thanks, Cel!

Another year another seamless process. One of the struggles one may experience is being able to access your docs past the consultation period. No longer an issue with the introduction of doc sharing services. Thanks for continuing to innovate and improve, Cel. More...

Cel is such a great tax preparer. He is so responsive, and really works to help get you the best return. I've recommended him to a coworker recently and she also had a really great experience. I'll be going to him moving forward with all my tax preparation needs. Thanks Cel! More...

This was my first time using Cel and his partner at Tax Shop.  My mom kept asking if he was a CPA, and that I "should only be going to CPAs for my taxes!"  But I've learned that CPAs charge WAY more for someone to file their taxes.  Cel and his partner did a great job of inputting my information, breaking it down into "average people terms," and submitting for refunds.  Smart, honest, quick, efficient, and very polite!The only thing I would have suggested is getting the a/c to kick on over the weekends.  I came in on a Sunday afternoon when it was surprisingly warm outside for early April and it was even warmer inside the office.  And maybe offer some cold water - even the little tiny bottles.

Went to Cel for the first time this tax season. I was able to get a same day appointment, so I didn't know what to expect. However, Cel exceeded my expectations and he's highly qualified and professional. I hope to use his services for many years to come. Thank you so much, Cel! More...

If I could give 10 stars, I would. I've always wanted a person to help me with my taxes rather than doing it on Turbo tax and I'm glad I found Cel. He's very patient, honest, and professional to his clients. I feel comfortable asking him any questions about personal finance and anything business related, near tax season and throughout the year. Honestly, I can tell that he truly cares about his clients and want to educate them everything that his clients should know. Plus, he always has a great friendly smile! If you're looking to get your taxes done, learn about your finances more than you know now, and have a good time while doing all of the above, then you won't regret going to Cel!Thanks Cel! We'll see you next year! More...

I started going to Cel 3 years ago and I've since learned so much about my own personal finances and taking it a step further with a small business. He even hosted a workshop to help people understand taxes. He's very honest and professional, but also really cares about his clients. He works hard to accommodate people into his schedule. I've since recommended 3 people to him and they have been going to him as well for a couple of years now. More...

I've been going to Cel for about 4 years now. He was recommended to me through a friend and I have not been disappointed. He's always very friendly with a big a smile and is thorough with making sure he gets all the information he needs to process my taxes correctly. I am student, full time employee and a business owner so everything counts. Thank you so much Cel for educating me and for the years of satisfaction. I'm looking forward to continue doing business with you.I highly recommend you guys to give him a shot! More...

I've been going to Cel for years. He works hard to get you the best refund possible and gives you suggestions on what you can do the next year to maximize your refund. Would definitely recommend

Phenomenal service with excellent knowledge base. Cel has been an advisor to me and several of my family members and friends. We always feel more educated and secure after meeting with him. He gives many options in his consultations, and looks out for the best interest of my family. I am empowered to be financially healthy, which filters into other areas of my life! I highly recommend the tax shop for all your tax related needs! More...

I have been using the services of Tax Shop for tax preparation for 3 years now.  I had used another service for years prior to switching.  They are very knowledgeable about all things regarding taxes and accounting.  They take the time to sit down with you and go over your current situation so they can make suggestions and recommendations tailored to you.  I absolutely trust and rely on the knowledge of Cel provided me along the way and the speed in which he was able to process my taxes.  This was an easy decision and looking back I would never let anyone handle my personal finances going forward!  Cel is a true professional and if you are looking for someone that knows the ins and outs of filing tax returns along with other financial services Tax Shop is the place.

I was looking for a Tax preparer near my area and I was searching on Yelp and I found the Tax Shop. It has great reviews and thought to myself why not give it a try. It didn't disappoint me. Cel is a great guy! Very professional. He explained to me very well about my tax which help me understand every line in it. He also gives great advice on how to take advantage of your tax and how you can save. I think he will be my go to tax guy every year. Highly recommended! More...

What can I say .... this place always takes the time to connect in a quality manner. Do u dread doing your taxes each year? I don't .... this place takes the time to explain what doesn't make sense to most of us ... I will keep coming back here for a long as I am in good health. More...

I've been going with Cel for three years now, and he's been the best. He's helped me truly understand the process of filing taxes, and after leaving his office I always know exactly where my refund comes from and why. I live in Cudahy and drive a hour every year just so that Cel can do my taxes. The only negative thing I have to say is that his office is a little hard to find, and parking is horrible. Other than that, I recommend him to everyone. More...

My wife and I have been going to Cel for the last few years now and he's the absolute best. Not only is he efficient, but he's thorough.Honestly it has been easiest tax filing experience we ever had.  Cel was knowledgeable and really took the time to explain what was going on and makes a truly painless experience every time. He has a great sense of humor and a very pleasant demeanor. He will explain everything and will even go out of his way to make sure his clients understand the whole process, all of the whats and whys, in ways that everyone can understand. We have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. We absolutely and highly recommend Cel to anyone that wants their taxes done correctly, efficiently and with someone that will make the experience a pleasant one. More...

Needed I new tax guy, after searching I found Cel and glad I did. He will explain everything and go out of his way to make sure you understand the whole process. I have to say no one has ever done that! Most tax preparers will guy get you in and out like a fast food joint, not Cel! I would highly recommend him. More...

I just got back from doing my taxes with Cel today. I was freaking out because it was the last day to do it and I had forgotten. He met me literally an hour after I called and was very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. He asked me lots of questions that helped maximize my return that my previous CPA never bothered to ask. He was nice, friendly, and genuine too. Overall, it was a great experience! I definitely recommend Tax Shop to anyone looking for an excellent tax preparer. More...

Cel has been more than our tax preparer, he has been a good friend. His business has been helping us for over 14 years. Always helpful, informative and has great integrity!Thank you for always being there!

My boyfriend and I have been to see Cel the past couple years.  He is very personable and knowledgable.  As someone who is new at this grown up thing, I am learning all my finance stuff that they didn't teach you in school.  He is very helpful and thoroughly explains how everything works.  He also gave me suggestions for the upcoming year and how I can improve my tax situation for next spring.  Visiting a second time was easy peasy because he already has much of my information.  O, and a free drink from his kitchen! Thanks Cel, and keep up the good work! More...
