I highly recommend Uplevel Business Services! They did my taxes last year! They did a wonderful job! I felt very confident that my taxes were done correctly by a business professional. Mr. Gelfuso was very knowledgeable of the ever changing tax laws and was able to get me more of a refund than what I was expecting! Don’t trust your taxes with just anyone! Call Uplevel!!!

Uplevel business services has taken our business to a new level! His knowledge on tax code is up to date and has saved our companies over 100k in the first year. His monthly service Keeps our records and books clean mistake free and vital for the operation to see exactly where your at so we can prepare for taxes , additional equipment and expansion. We switched all of our business and personal taxes to him and with his guidance our business net income has tripled within 2 years. As a business owner Of a growing business the value is unmatched to have Chris at uplevel on our side. I’m a large enough company to hire a cfo but uplevel is a fraction of the cost.
