Will has proven himself an expert at navigating the confusing world of same-sex couple taxes, and I would recommend his services in this special practice area to anyone. At a time when state and federal laws potentially conflict and until DOMA is repealed or altered, filing taxes as a same-sex couple in California is difficult to work your way through. Will took the lead and guided my husband and me through. Seamlessly, he prepared our 2010 filing according to the new rules, and then did the same for applicable prior years, so we could make an informed choice about whether to re-file applicable prior years. Every piece of information Will presented to us was clear, concise and timely. We couldn’t be happier.Don & Kyle


For many joint filers in our situation, tax laws are confusing and intimidating. Will made this process much easier to understand. Will's enthusiasm, expert domain knowledge and attention to detail were vital in realizing huge tax savings for us.Matt


I realized in my earlier messages that I was very understated in how I feel about the work that you have done! WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a great outcome for us! Thanks for all your help.Margaret


Glad to give you a big two thumbs up! Your help with getting tax refunds paid for my new kitchen and I still had enough to put solar panels on the roof! Your service and letting me know this was possible for gay married couples helped us out tremendously. I hope all gay married couples hear about you so they could do the same if they've been overpaying like I was. I've been spreading this about your service by word of mouth so I really hope this catches on! I don't mind paying my fair share but feel much better now that I am paying an equitable rate compared to other tax payers. This is real equality! You're the man!!!!Doug, M.D.


We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of service we've received from Will Jones at Olsen & Partners. Due to IRS rule changes related to same sex couples who are married or registered as domestic partners in California, we needed to find an accountant and interviewed several tax accounting firms, and ended up choosing Olsen & Partners.We also opted to file retroactively back to the 2007 filing year. Overall, we went from owing in each year to getting a return. The total amount refunded to us for the years 2007-2010 amounted to more than $37,000 combined! The service didn't end there. When we received several letters from the IRS about our amended filings (not even all of the agents of the IRS were aware of the rule changes!) Will Jones was able to get things straightened out with the IRS in a matter of hours, even getting an incorrect penalty removed! Interaction via both phone and email was prompt, professional, and courteous. We'll definitely be working with Will Jones at Olsen & Partners going forward on our taxes!Alan & Thomas


After attending the Registered Domestic Partnership (RDP) Tax Seminar hosted by Olsen & Partners and led by Will Jones, I had a clear understanding of what is involved with amending past tax returns and preparing current returns for RDP's. The presentation by Mr. Jones was thorough and complete with several examples. There was ample time for questions and discussion of particular circumstances. My comfort level was greatly increased as Will reviewed how he was following stated IRS regulations and guidance prepared specifically for amending past federal tax returns in light of California law observing RDP's.Kevin
