What they say about us
  • positive review  Aarti took a very proactive approach to explain the tax filing process since I have no background in the system. My paper filing documents came back in the mail despite following advice from a reputable online agency. Aarti explained exactly what I needed to do and I feel comfortable going back to her in the future. Great work!

  • positive review  We used TaxShy’s services for my parent’s tax return. As new US GC holders, their return was complicated by their financial interests in 2 other countries. My parents are not very tech savvy, and Aarti worked very well with them to collate the list of items needed for their complex international tax return including credits from India. All through the process, Aarti impressed with her knowledge, patience working through the tons of reporting forms, leading to a successful filing on time. Highly recommend Aarti for all your tax needs, especially if it involves international tax situations.

    positive review  I had a lot of questions concerning my tax documents, especially being an NRA student in the USA. Aarti gave me a lot of guidance and helped me navigate how to handle tax documents that have errors on them. She is an excellent listener and is professional in her interactions. Highly recommend TaxShy.
