"Their attorneys saved me $94,000. Seriously. They appealed successfully to the IRS (who were very gracious, I must add) and got my account credited in this amount. Wow. Friggin' amazing... Love these folks."

"It amazes me the level of effort that Frost and Associates puts in every year during tax season. I often see emails at 9:30 p.m. asking questions or providing status updates. The commitment that this firm has to meet deadlines and provide timely customer service is outstanding to say the least. Much appreciation for your hard work and dedication."
