Some comments in email from my clients:

March 1, 2011 from Sapporo Japan

I am an American who has been living in Japan for several years,was not aware that I was required to file in the U.S. as well as Japan,when I found out about this I was very worried, at first I contacted (2) tax preparers in the Tokyo area, That was a big mistake,they tried to make everything as difficult and confusing as possible,also their fee was very high, then I contacted David and he cut through all the red tape and walked me through the ordeal with no problem,and even got me a refund,I definitely recommend him. Thank you David.


March 2, 2011 from Iwate Japan

Thanks again, David. You are amazing at explaining everything. You have turned a guy who was terrified of what he needed to do into a confident man who feels in control of his destiny. I really appreciate that.


February 9, 2010 from Honolulu


Mr. Lewis,
Thank you! I have received your package. I will be sending out payment as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help! I am very impressed.
Thank you,


March 16, 2010 from Shinjuku Tokyo


Fantastic and thank you for working on my taxes so quickly. 
 
 ….. I was not informed by my companies of the need to file in the US and once I learned  the info then I was avoiding it for fear of penalties and taxes if owed and then had to find the most suitable preparer/right price for my budget.. ..
 
But, NOW I can breathe easier knowing I am up to date regardless if I owe penalties or not. SO, MANY THANKS for your hard work to clear up my tax BS and sorry for the headaches. I am glad it is resolved and look forward to signing/sending them in. I will follow up with anything further once received. I am curious to see if I owe/refund or what.
Note .(David Lewis’s reply, “Breath easy. There are refunds”)

From Osaka 03/29/2010
Dear David
Thanks for your help every year with my taxes.  I feel so good filing and not finding myself on some black list in the future.  You do a great job!


From Kyoto 03/30/09

….. Anyway, please know how much I appreciate you taking care of all this stuff for me. I know it's an annoying hassle, especially so because it's their (IRS sic) mistake……
Thank you for all your help. I'd be in debtor's prison without you.


From Tokyo 03/31/09

(David’s note: This client received a lump-sum Taishokukin retirement payment.  I thought he would be shocked at my fee)

Thanks for your help every year I am not at all shocked, no. In fact, I would rather pay you than the US government because I can directly see and benefit from the valuable advice and service you provide..

David
Just wanted to say thank you very much for your "speedy" and professional service.
Everything looks in order and I am pleased you were able to help me in such a short period of time. Your fee will be deposited in your account today.

Looks like you are my "main man" when it comes to tax preparation. I'll be sure to let my
colleagues know about your excellent service. I must say this is quite a load off!
Thank you again. I will certainly contact you whenever the need arises.
Have a great day.
Best Regards,
