    My account managers that I dealt with were extremely courteous throughout the process which took nearly two years as a result of an issue with the NYC State Tax Office. I was never forgotten about with Taxback.com or my account manager; Ekaterina Kamburova. She was kind, extremely professional and handled my queries and problems with the upmost professional courtesy one would expect. Thank You Ekaterina!

    Taxback.com has been such a blessing! The process of retrieving my tax return was painfully simple, and Kalina did a great job! All updates were communicated clearly and there was never a time when I was uninformed. Would definitely recommend Taxback.com to anyone and everyone!
