Daniel Feyka at JD Pantzis has been our accountant for years, and I cannot praise him highly enough. The first time we came to see him, he discovered a withholding issue in my husband's paycheck that had cost us thousands of dollars the previous year. He is warm, kind, thorough, professional, and has made filing our taxes easier each year. I am grateful we found someone trustworthy and who is always available to answer my questions. I give him my highest recommendation.

Chris Manukian is an absolute rock star. I always feel so well taken care of at JD Pantzis. Yes, they crank out a ton of returns, and yes, it can seem very very busy if you go in person, but once you have an in-person consultation, they support a remote relationship and it's extremely convenient with e-sign and e-file, electronic copies of your return, and year-round support of your silly year-round tax questions. I am going to have a breakdown if Manukian ever leaves there. Just saying. Well worth the money to work with a well-organized, conscientious, knowlegable accounting firm. This ain't no H&R Block. This is a real firm with trained and seasoned accountants. You get what you pay for.

My husband and I have been clients of Pantzis James CPA since we began working (high school to present) and have had great experiences each time. We reside well outside of the five boroughs but are continuous clients. For us, it isn't about location rather it's the level of professionalism and guidance that the CPAs provide, which are not just tax filing, but also entrepreneurial work, real estate that we have access to. They ensure that our filing statuses are appropriate and if ever audited by IRS, they are there to represent their clients. Of course it is a business however the CPAs genuinely take the time to get to know their clients and there's never a point where you feel rushed out of the office. Our experience has also been great in that we can email our CPA Daniel and he is beyond responsive and helpful in ways one could never imagine. While we have only worked with Timothy and Daniel, who are absolutely great, I am certain the other CPAs are just as great.

Jim and his firm have taken excellent care of my payroll needs. They've consistently been there for me, and always responded promptly to requests for service. Any company can just set you up to log into a website and process your payroll, and even maybe file the forms. But what differentiates the excellent from the mediocre is how they stand by their service. Jim and his staff have always been there when I needed them, and have patiently guided me through whatever crisis—real or imagined—that I had at the time I called. They were great, and I highly recommend them.

Dana Friedman

I would highly recommend J.D. Pantzis, CPA, PC for their Tax & Accounting Services. I have trusted this group with my personal and business taxes for over 10 years. My parents have worked with this tax group for over 25 years. All of their employees are extremely responsive, dependable and are always available to answer any questions or concerns you have.

How You’re Missing Legal Tax Deductions

Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes.

But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!
