My name is Leanne Ortiz and unlike the review below by (James. S) which is actually Landon Charles I am a verified client. I was referred to Universal Tax by my coworker 2 years ago and they are awesome, King is great at what he does. My friends and family now file with him. I work at Cox Communications and I know Landon Charles really well. He called me and bragged about how he has been leaving negative reviews about Universal Tax and King and this loser had the nerve to even offer to pay me if I will write bad reviews about King. Landon Charles was fired from Cox Communications for filing false medical leave paperwork to receive paid time 0ff and he did this 3 times in two years. We learnt that he is currently under investigations from the Department of Insurance for buying cars at the auction, vandalizing and in some cases burning them to file insurance claims. That should tell you enough about Landon Charles who sat next to me at work and I never knew he was so despicable. What kind of man has time to write about how another man wears his hair, to each its own, may his in the closet. Look, Universal Tax is the place to go; King is the best even though it’s hard to reach him during tax season. With the internet these days it is easy for clowns like this guy Landon to create fake profiles to leave bad reviews. Do your homework, reply and comment for bad reviewers to proof that they actually received a service. James. S (aka. Landon Charles) should be able to defend and post a page of their tax return that shows Universal Tax’s information to show they were a client or provide their full name so that you can anonymously call the company to find out if they provided a service. Universal Tax Services rocks, you won’t be disappointed.

My name is Brittany Williams and I’ve filed my tax return at Universal Tax for the past 3 years by King and I’ve always been very happy and satisfied with the service provided. I’ve never written a review but I had to take the time to write this after reading the review below and knowing who wrote it. Landon Charles was the one who referred me to King at Universal Tax who has filed my taxes, my family and friends. Landon Charles worked with me at Cox Communications until he was fired for falsifying reports to receive compensation for fraudulent paid-time-leave. The profile written below was written and created by him and I know this for a fact because he has contacted some people that work here with me and asked them to write negative reviews about Universal Tax and King even though they have no grievances with either. He purchased a Universal Tax Franchise, failed and lost the Franchise. It is very sad that someone can be as low as he is to have time to do what he’s doing. That he failed as a human being and as a business man, if I can call him that, isn’t the fault of Universal Tax. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do what I did, to back trace the review below and see that the IP Address traces back to his home address at 8777 W. Maule Avenue. Unit 2175. Las Vegas, 89148. I hope this makes a difference because it is wrong on every level to do what he’s doing and he needs to really get a life.

Julie and I had an immediate connection because of her innate kindness and her caring. She understood the fear and worry I was experiencing and told me to turn it over to her. As you know there are many firms out there who say that they can help and all they do is take more money from a homeowner who is already in trouble and vanish. This was a fear of mine until I spoke to her. She was very detailed about what she did, answered all of my questions and responded to every e-mail or phone message I sent her. I found this to be amazing with the volume I knew she was handling and I appreciated her treating me in such a special way. Julie treated me as though the home was her own and that is what made her such a pleasure to work with. I genuinely thought that she cared and she has shown me that she does throughout our relationship together. Sometimes it was just a voicemail asking how I was doing or offering just to talk. This was over and beyond the call of duty and I want you and her to know how deeply I appreciated her always being there for me. I am glad that there is resolution to my case but I will miss working with my pal.

Honestly this company is great ! My friends recommended me to check them out. I went in and two lovely ladies welcomed me,I had a couple of questions which without doubt they knew what they were talking about. By then I knew that the services that they were going to provide would be handled professionally. The person that filed my tax return was very helpful and even gave me tips to be better prepared for next year, this was the first time that I actually feel like they were helping me and also my refund came out great ! After my preparer was done they walked me through the process and what information was put into just to verify with me. My preparation fee was taken out of my refund so that was a big plus ! Also they showed me the screen and walked me through their process which I was completely happy with. So far I recommended a couple of friends and they also walk out with a smile !... By the way, if you refer someone they give you money back, what's better than that.?!

You would never find better service anywhere! We are new to Las Vegas and when transferring our insurance from CA to NV, we found Brian in the Yellow Pages. That was great luck for us! We had everything explained that we hadn't quite understood before, and really had an overall great experience there. Brian took so much time recommending businesses that he personally uses, and so far we have been very pleased with those dealings as well. We actually look forward to visiting his office and learned more about our new city than we thought possible in two weeks. We do consider him a friend at this point and cannot stress strongly enough that a visit with him could save you a lot of money and know that you have the proper coverage for both auto and home. Brian is fair about how much coverage you need as well as what you don't need. Needless to say, we are very pleased with his service and would recommend his service to all of my good friends and acquaintences as well.

My name is Izaac. I had to get on here and show some support to my accountant King after my coworker Brittany told me about what Landon has been posting and fake websites that he’s created to target Universal Tax and King. On the real Landon use to be my dude but wrong is wrong and creating fake profiles to leave bad reviews and slander to this extent is crossing the line. It was Landon who referred me to Universal Tax and King and King has always done right by me. It ain’t Universal Tax’s or King’s fault that he failed when he tried to own a tax office and it didn’t succeed. On the real go to Universal Tax see King or anybody in any of their offices, you ain’t gotta commit but you can ask questions just to see if they know what they’re talking about. You won’t be disappointed. That I can promise

I can't say enough how much of a pleasure it's been to work with King Umoren and the Universal Tax LV team. They have guided me through complicated and stressful tax situations with ease and they made me feel completely sure about the work they were doing on my behalf. Whether in person or via email, the staffs are happy to be working with and communicating with you. You never feel rushed or like a burden to them, their MO is to make their jobs look easy and they do! King Umoren has hired a group of people who love what they do and who really get customer service. Any business should look toward this firm as a model and as a customer, I feel very fortunate to be on their roster!

We just bought a 2013 Nissan Altima and I swear we have never had such a wonderful car buying experience ever. We started off at Toyota and were given a sub-par deal; 12% interest and 4 grand on a trade in. We left scratching our heads because we knew our credit was better than that! The next day we went to Nissan and got 2.9% interest and 7 grand for our trade-in. Thaaats more like it! The 2 salesmen we dealt with didnt seem like salesmen in the usual sense. They werent like vultures, tryng to ram a deal down our throats. The finance guy was knowledgeable and funny, too. We will definitely return to buy our next car here and urge you to do so as well.

I found Universal Tax through Google. The reviews were right. Melvin Vallejo was friendly and knowledgeable, and what I appreciated most was that he was efficient yet personable. First, he did my 2016 taxes and then amended my 2015 when he figured out that I had overpaid my taxes because I had originally mistakenly filled out the wrong form. Melvin Vallejo worked fast and finished in less time than he had estimated, and his rates are very reasonable for the quality of work. He patiently answered all my questions without making me feel dumb (and seeing how I did my taxes wrong, I'm sure I had dumb questions), and I know I will be going back for 2017!

Alden Stephens is awesome. I was totally behind in doing my taxes this year (due to my daughters birth in early March) and he took me on as a new client literally the week before the deadline. He is not your traditional CPA (his office is in the space where they make the metal sculptures for burning man) and he doesn't charge the traditional CPA prices. He knows his stuff. I have been independent for a while and he did both my personal and business taxes. He asks all the right questions. I pretty much need someone to pull it all together for me, give me some advice and go get that return done. He has also answered questions throughout the year.
Tips & Advices
By law, you need to be insured up to the minimum amount required in your state before getting behind the wheel of any car. Beyond that, your insurance needs will vary depending on your financial situation and the amount of risk you are willing to take on.
  • Full or comprehensive car insurance is the most expensive, but often the best deal for drivers who own an expensive car, those who commute frequently or anyone who lives in an area with extreme weather or high crime rates.
  • Drivers of less expensive or older cars usually save more by opting for the minimum required policy, along with some extra coverage if they can afford it. Since the cost of repairs might exceed the total value of an older vehicle, some owners forgo collision protection in favor of greater liability coverage or personal injury coverage.
If someone other than you causes an accident while driving your car, most insurance policies will still pay for damage, according to the rules that apply. However, it’s a good idea to check with the insurance provider to be sure this is the case. Regardless, either the at-fault driver or the actual policyholder will be responsible for paying for anything not covered by insurance. People who don’t own a car but frequently borrow or rent one might consider purchasing a non-owner policy to make up the difference.
Car insurance premiums might be tax deductible in certain situations, but only with the documentation to prove it. Insurance costs may be deducted as part of overall business expenses if you use that car for work-related travel. However, this does not generally apply to taxpayers who use the standard deduction when filing their income tax returns. If your car is used for business purposes often, save all insurance-related documentation, as well as receipts, invoices and other forms of proof that your vehicle expenses were for business purposes.
Car insurers set premium prices depending on every driver’s individual risk. A huge number of details are factored into every determination of insurance risk, so the cost of any two policies can vary widely depending on the driver’s personal attributes, accident history, location, vehicle type and much more. The type of coverage you choose also impacts what you pay - premiums for minimal liability coverage will almost always be lower than those of a universal coverage policy.
The cost of car insurance is highly variable, but according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, U.S. motorists pay around $900 per year on auto insurance.
