    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!
