Testimonials

"A refreshing alternative to the traditional tax staffing firm. I felt comfortable and at ease dealing with Howard. His firm found the ideal position for me, starting up a tax department of a fast growing company."

Steve B., Tax Manager
Privately-held Company


"I was fortunate to have had Howie place me at Guardian Life Insurance back in 1992, where I had spent 21 terrific years. As a CPA with a Masters Degree, Howie has acquired a wonderful talent of being able to match tax candidates skill sets with prospective jobs. I would encourage employees and employers to coordinate with Howie with respect to tax related jobs."

RB, CPA/MST- Corporate Tax Manager


"I have called on Howard to assist us with our staffing needs for a number of years. The fact that he has a technical background as a CPA and tax practitioner gives him a clear advantage over other recruiters. He's sincere and gives each assignment 110%! His firm is on my "short list" of recruiters whom I contact when my company has a tax need."

Stanley S., Director of Human Resources
Large CPA Firm


"We express deep appreciation for Howard's service to the accounting profession by being a committee member for the past several years... this work helps the profession meet new challenges in the increasingly complex business and regulatory environment."

NY State Society of CPA's


"When Howie first contacted me about one of my company's open tax jobs, I was surprised about some of the complex questions he was asking. At first, I was thought he was looking to apply for the job HIMSELF (being a tax seasoned professional), but realized he needed to know specific answers so he could qualify the right tax people in his extensive database."

Vice President-Taxes of U.S. subsidiary of Global conglomerate


"I have known you for over 25 years. Since we worked together in the tax department of KPMG Peat Marwick, I have always held you in the highest regard - both professionally and on a personal basis... you've placed several tax people with us - keep up the good work!"

Brian D., Tax Director
Publicly-held Corporation


"I'd like to convey my sincere gratification for both the guidance and recruitment service your firm provided throughout our search for a tax manager. Your dedication, commitment and knowledge was consistent of a retainer firm, however performed on a contingency basis."

Ken G., Controller
Software Development Co.


"My business centers on general accounting, finance and internal audit positions. I call on Howard's firm to do a "split-fee arrangement" on many tax jobs that arise - he has extensive files that only a tax specialist would have!"

Mike M., Owner
Another Search Firm


"I found out about Kutcher Tax Careers through my surfing the Internet. Through the firm, I got an excellent position which fits my skills and my long-term career goals. Howard is a pleasure to work with. He's personable, knowledgeable, and responsive. I would recommend his firm to my friends and colleagues if the situation arises."

Ray E., Tax Accountant
Medium-size CPA Firm


"Since I like to use analogies to media figures, when I dealt with Kutcher Tax Careers in hope of obtaining offers with the Big 4 CPA firms, I referred to Howard as "Arliss" (the sports agent on HBO) and kept saying to him "show me the money!" (quote from the movie "Jerry Maguire"). He did come through for me."
