-Fred & Sue Becker, Owners Backyard Shed Co. Inc. Selkirk, NY,
"Vince Anna’s Restaurant in South Westerlo has been serving fine Italian/American food to the Greater Greenville area since 1945 and for the past twenty five years we have been fortunate to have Fred Zeitler, CPA as our accountant. And now we are even more fortunate to have his son Christopher partner with Fred, so that we now have Zeitler & Zeitler, CPA’s to represent us in the future. They do our weekly payroll, file our quarterly sales tax returns, reconcile our bank accounts and keep track of where we are income wise throughout the year and so much more. They do things on time and hassle free which lets me do what I do best – cook"
-Jim Eufemia, President, Vince Anna’s Restaurant, Inc. South Westerlo, NY,
"Fred has been my accountant for thirty years since when I started my company, Bullock Utilities, Inc. He has given me good, sound advice on a wide range of business and tax issues and I highly recommend him and his new firm, Zeitler & Zeitler, CPA’s. You can count on them."
- Peter Bullock, President of Bullock Utilities, Inc., Ravena, NY,
"I can attest that the firm of Zeitler & Zeitler, CPA’s and that includes the hardworking and competent staff, maintains confidences, they get the job done without delays and at a fair price. I trust them both for my business needs and for my personal tax preparation and advice."
- Mark Wilcox, President of Greenville Auto & Truck Parts, Inc.,
"I was selected for a random audit a few years ago, and Fred was right there to help me, at no additional cost. He asked if I wanted to visit the Feds by myself or with him or just have him go with me. We both agreed that the last choice was the best. Fortunately, because of Fred, my forms and receipts were up-to-date, and we 'endured' the audit and came out with flying colors. Very reassuring."
- Paul Swift, Rhinebeck, NY,
"As a woman with a small business and new to the area, I asked friends who I might engage as an accountant. More than one pointed me to Fred Zeitler, and I couldn't be happier to have him at my side in running my business, paying taxes, and looking for ways to deal with uncertain economic times."
- Sarah Hogan, Cairo, NY,
"What I like best about having Fred Zeitler as an accountant is that I get Fred Zeitler, not some junior accountant or, worse, a series of different junior accountants each time I have an appointment. Nothing beats a one-on-one business relationship"
- Mary Relyea, Greenville, NY,
"Fred saved me $8,765 in state and federal taxes the first year he handled my account. What more can I say in his behalf?"
- Daniel Carney, Kingston, NY,
