Testimonials

These are just some of the testimonials we’ve gathered from satisfied customers….

“John and I have been good friends since about 1989 when he started doing both my corporate and personal taxes. He has done them every year since. I was a recent Microsoft ‘retiree’ at the time and was impressed with John’s computer accounting expertise. He is a very good accountant and very credible. He stays up to speed on all the income tax changes. Also, he has always been very ‘computer literate’ and able to send and receive data in whatever media (very rare for accountants!). He has also been flexible in accommodating whatever weirdness we’ve had! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good accountant.”
– Scott Treseder


“John has displayed a great understanding of the business and personal ramification of taxes while preparing a meticulous return that sails through the system year in and out. Keeping our tax burden and time requirements at a minimum a plus- while being a good communicator and decent dinner company after wrapping up for the day. We’d recommend John for anyone’s tax and business consultation.”
– Kevin and Julie Cedergreen


“Here are a few reasons why I have continued to use the services of John Burke as my CPA. I don’t remember when we started but I am sure that it is over 15 years. He was very helpful in giving useful tax advice at the time my husband died 11 years ago. He also gave me peace of mind in setting up a financial tax basis for a duplex rental. He looks for ways that will save me money but is careful that it be legal. I feel very comfortable in calling him, even when it is not tax time, and a decision should be made. I have a sense that he personally cares that I do well. In fact, during these many years he has become a friend.”

“I hired John Burke to serve as the fiscal advisor for an Oregon non-profit in 2010. As Executive Director, I needed a CPA as well as someone who could provide QuickBooks training, streamline our financial reports and assist with our tax returns. A few days after he started, he discovered that tax returns from a period prior to my joining the organization had never been filed. We were looking at hefty IRS penalties and were very concerned. John worked directly with the IRS on our behalf and then helped me prepare abatement letters. In the end, our penalties totaling $27,500 were abated and I give John full credit for this outcome. John also streamlined our financial reports which eased our budget process and gave suggestions that led to increased cash flow and more profitable events. His low-key style and ability to communicate complex tax and accounting principles in laymen’s terms was a big plus for us too!”
