Readers' Choice: Best Place to Take Your Taxes in East Providence

It's tax time - tell us where to get the best deal.

It's April, and with this month's showers comes the annual tax filing deadline.

Will your tax return aim a little sunshine into a rainy day, or do you need to settle with the state and Uncle Sam, ASAP? Having the right person to sort through all the forms and deductions can be a huge relief during a stress-filled time of the year. 

This week, we want to know: where do you take your taxes when time is running short?

Do you prefer H & R Block, , , Ameriprise Financial Advisors, Mario J Carneiro CPA Ltd,  CPA, , , , or .

Vote in our poll below, then share your thoughts in the comments section. If we left your favorite spot off the list, note that in the comments as well.

We'll leave the poll up all week then close voting at 9 a.m. Friday. At noon that day, we'll share your top local pick. Then be sure to watch the site over the weekend when we tally up the top votes and announce the tax preparer that got the most rave reviews across all of our Rhode Island sites.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch.

You need to include EMD Tax Consulting to your list of options. I've been having my taxes done there for years, as has my father. Mr. DeMeneses is a real pro, and has literally saved me thousands of dollars. That's who gets my vote!

EMD Tax Consulting has done an excellent job with my taxes for the past three years. They have been professional, thorough, and very informative. Not only do they do a great job on taxes, but they take the time to educate on new laws and best practices to avoid surprises.

EMD get my vote also they have been doing my taxes for a long time.

EMD did a great job on my taxes. I went to two other firms and they could not do my taxes. EMD gets my vote. Keep you the good work.

I would recommend EMD tax consulting to all. He has been preparing my taxes for years and he is always updating himself with the latest information. He is also very professional and knowledgeable.
Jennifer April 04, 2012 at 10:56 PM

Paul Rodrigues April 04, 2012 at 11:03 PM

Lilliane Coelho April 04, 2012 at 11:21 PM
My vote goes to EMD tax consulting. Great people and great service, will refer anyone to EMD!
Herb April 05, 2012 at 12:17 AM
EMD is the best. They have been doing my taxes for 10 years and my vote is for EMD without a doubt!
Paul April 05, 2012 at 01:09 AM
OK EMD. We get it. The way that you prepare tax returns inspires passion beyond human understanding and description. Your clients pray that they will be audited, just so that they can experience EMD euphoria more than just once a year. The EMD office has become a regular stop on the duck boat tours and, to many CPAs, EMD is actually considered a holy shrine. Can you now tell all your legions of fans to stand down? Thanks

LOL Paul . . . actually, I just picked up my tax returns from EMD Tax Consulting late last night and he looks like he's up to his ears in tax returns so I'm pretty sure he has no idea this survey is even going on. Even though EMD did not originally prepare my tax returns, they have my vote because they just corrected my 2008 - 2011 tax returns and got me back THOUSANDS $$$ related to a recent tax law change in MA that my CPA never told me about - I only heard about it from an existing EMD client who is a friend of mine and I could have lost a lot of money because 2008 expires on 04/15/2012! Honestly, I can see why all these people are stepping up and voting for EMD because I'll be going there from now on. FYI, if anyone reading this lives in MA and works in RI, like me, call EMD Tax Consulting ASAP so they can get you refunds - it's a lot of money.

LMFAO - very creative and too funny, but I want to vote for EMD Tax Consulting also (even though it doesn't look like they need any more votes - lol). See, with my last CPA, who I used for years and who is listed as an option to vote above, I only spoke to him once a year and for only a few minutes. Now that I'm with EMD, I have access to him via Twitter and Facebook so I get automatic tax-related updates all year round right to my cell phone - and it's free since I'm a client so I don't have to pay anything extra!
Britney Cahir April 05, 2012 at 08:41 PM
I'm glad my friend referred me to EMD! I Have not been more satisfied with anyone else. EMD gains my vote.
Jenny Lee April 05, 2012 at 09:02 PM
I vote for EMD tax consulting. I feel very fortunate to have someone skilled enough to assist fortune 1000 companies with their taxes, prepare my taxes.
joe soars April 05, 2012 at 10:20 PM
LOL..... Paul you sound like an insecure immature babbling child .... Who can't give credit when credit is do .. EMD is for the clients .. and not the money it is a24 hr 365 day a year business....and not only that. May I add he not only looks at you as a client he treats you like family... So Paul get your facts straight before you flap your gums... Check yourself before you reck yourself......LOL

Hello Mrs. Crocker, I have been a loyal client of EMD Tax Consulting for 10 years. I've found the level of knowledge and expertise to be unmatched by any other firm for the same price. I've recommended to my parents and closest friends and family to use EMD Tax Consulting.

I also went to EMD. I've been going there for about 10 years and wouldn't go anywhere else!

I didn't voted because EMD taxes is the one who completes my tax returns. They're amazing and accurate. I am not worried about the IRS knocking on my doors because of them! -Sandrine

Good Morning, I know it's late I was on vacation & did not get to my e-mail. I feel that EMD is the most knowlegeble just opened a business in EP & would not think of anyone else I would get my information on small business, besides the fact EMD also does my personal taxes.
Maria L Ferreira April 09, 2012 at 01:51 PM
Great job EMD and thank you.
