Great Results, Good Value and High Integrity...

"My husband and I have used Rick [Richard Alfera] and his firm [Goff Backa Alfera & Company, LLC] for years. He has made tax filing a breeze for us and the worksheets couldn't be easier to understand. When financial advice is called for, Rick has always taken the time to listen and provide sound and detailed knowledge. We trust Rick so much that we have referred him to my 84 year old mother who is going to use him for the first time this tax season. It's all about trust as well as making her life easier and more efficient. I HIGHLY recommend Rick Alfera as well as his company. Top qualities are great results, good value, and high integrity."

Superior Quality...

"University professors have never been known for a lack of opinion on virtually all subjects. Retired professor emeriti are even worse. Generally what they have to say is critical, without constructive suggestions for improvement!

However, at the risk of improving our (my) public persona, I have wanted to offer a supportive letter and thank your firm for years of tax planning, timely filing, and general business expertise. I particularly value the expeditious handling of all IRS questions, returned phone calls and lack of last minute panic each April.

My comments apply equally to my Charitable Foundation, trusts, multi-state filing, and of course all federal returns for the trusts, charitable foundations, and regular consulting income sources. I realize that the complexity of more than two dozen filings is no small task. As you know, I have had both public and private firms handle these matters for over thirty years. To date, only one gets an A plus!

Thank you for your continued service and superior quality workmanship."
