Here is what our Customers are Saying…

My wife and I, both retired educators, were informed by the IRS in Nov. 2014 that we owed $14,000 in back taxes for 2012. I tried to communicate with the IRS but with no luck. We contacted Diana in July 2015 after the IRS stated that our bill would stand and gave us a deadline date for tax court. Besides being  very thorough and very tenacious, she was very reaffirming. Our tax bill was settled in November 2015 for approximately $900. We can’t say enough about Diana’s work!!

Diana is detailed and professional at doing taxes and I am always pleased with the outcome. Taxes are not my favorite and Diana makes it easy and does an excellent job. She has done my small business taxes for the past 3 years and I highly recommend her. I would not have anyone else.

Diana and the Double Entry Bookkeeping staff were exceptionally easy to work with. I had started doing my taxes with turbo tax and then switched to DEB because I felt I may not have been covering all my bases. I was right! Don’t do it yourself call Diana

My daughter recommended Diana to me and I am very glad. I trust Diana to do an accurate and timely preparation of my tax returns. Diana and I communicate primarily through e-mail. Whenever I send a message to her, even during the busy tax return season, Diana responds quickly, even on weekends. Diana has prepared my son’s taxes for the past two years and he is very happy with her services as well.

Monica Litzelman – Litigation Paralegal

Diana has done a fantastic job with my taxes the two times that I’ve hired her. Her fee is very reasonable for the good work that she does. I trust her without hesitation; when tax season rolls around, I know I’m in good hands. And the anxiety disappears!

Double Entry Bookkeeping provides fast, accurate, and comprehensive bookkeeping services. Diana runs a tight ship. Not only is she analytical, incisive, and an excellent resource on taxes, she is a pleasure to work with.

My inventory and financial sheets were a mess – that’s when I called Diana. I thought it would take days to fix, but she knows her stuff so well, she quickly figured out what I had done wrong and taught me what to do in the future. She is great to work with – and, now, whenever I get stuck on something with my books, I don’t hesitate to call her in to advise. An absolute gem!

I have recommended Diana almost exclusively for a number of years to work with my small business clients. She is amiable, diligent and well versed in all aspects of book keeping and tax prep. She also works well with CPAs and provides seamlees service, an important stress reliever in this fast paced, roller coaster economy we all find ourselves in.

Cat Fraser, Owner, Health Insurance & Employee Benefits

I have shared some clients with Diana over the years where she is the bookkeeper and I am the CPA. My experience working with her and her staff has always been a pleasant one. Her clients have a great deal of faith in her and trust the work she does. One of Diana’s many strengths is her ability to know what she doesn’t know. She is not afraid to seek input from me on a client’s situation to be sure she is handling a situation correctly to benefit her client. Not only is she a smart and successful business woman, she also has a very pleasant personality and is very likable.

Diana has been an invaluable resource to our organization.

Her patience is endless, and she is always willing to answer questions and talk me through confusing issues. Her work has also increased our donor confidence, as I can present them with detailed reports and show exactly how their money has been spent.

Diana does everything for me! As an extremely busy business owner, I feel at ease knowing that Double Entry Bookkeeping is taking care of my books. Diana is also one of my clients, so I feel that she really supports what I do. I’d much rather spend time on my business and not on my books. I feel confident and relief with Double Entry Bookkeeping.

Diana has been a wonderful bookkeeper that has supported me as a start up business in 2003 to a growing business in 2005. She assisted in making the transition of selling my business in 2008 clean, clear and efficient with all of the other tasks I had to manage. She has always been on-time with her detailed work and has always made me feel as if I were her only client! I highly recommend her work and that of her employees, …. a must as a previous small business owner.

Double Entry Bookkeeping – they are the best! Twice weekly we give Diana Sheltra and her staff our bookkeeping records and when the information leaves my hands I am confident that it will be taken care of efficiently and accurately. Diana’s knowledge spans more than just bookkeeping — she can answer 99% of our questions, thus saving us money that might otherwise be spent on other high priced financial professionals. Diana and her staff are serious when they say “we can do it all!”

I recommend Diana and Double Entry Bookkeeping on a regular basis and might as well make it official on Linked In. If it wasn’t for Diana and her team, I would not be organized with my finances and would be stressed a lot more than I am. She has helped me learn how to handle my accounting in a manor that works for my business and is always there to answer questions. Her expertise, manner, and entire service is a small business savior!
