I reached out to Protax Consulting Services for advice in filing US tax return that should be covered by a tax treaty. He responded to my email promptly and scheduled a pro bono phone consultation the next day. He took time to understand my situation and gave me excellent advice that I was surprised and delighted to be able to receive for free. His advice gave me confidence to handle my taxes by myself, but if I ran into any difficulties I would have been straight back on the phone to Marc to hire his services. I highly recommend anyone working in the US on a J1 visa who needs help or advice with their US taxes reach out to Marc.

Marc from Protax was great, he ran me through my top questions and gave advice for what to do in this calendar year and implications in future years. Clearly has experience with US and Canadian tax systems. Thanks Marc!

I appreciate the time Mr Strohl took for a phone consultation and I appreciate he might be quite knowledgable. However, his car salesman personality was not for me. He barely let me get a word in about my actual concerns and eventually gave me inappropriate personal advice under the guise of tax advice. From all the stellar reviews here I must assume he had a serious off-day when he talked to me. Or he only has 5 star reviews, because after the phone consultation you get an e-mail explicitly asking you for 5 stars. Who knows.

I emailed Marc yesterday, I had a answer within minutes.I Had questions on my foreign taxes. I needed to gather some info. He is outstanding very nice, professional, patient and on point, very detailed and it was so helpful. Most of all I've never seen anybody like that before. Most ppl just blow you off or want billions of dollars for one question. I can recommend Mark to anybody. I'm very greatful I had found him on google. I'm just happy my issues are solved. Thank you so much Mark. 🌸 💐🌷 NICOLE

Marc is a very fine professional. Very knowledgeable in his field, but above all, what I like the most is that he is humble and courteous with his colleagues. I have reached out to him for professional advise, and he did not hesitated to give it to me and make sure that I was clear. I enjoy his webinars very much. His information is very useful and up to date. Thank you Marc for your contribution to all of us tax practitioners!

As a foreigner living in the US, Marc helped a lot about my tax issues with his professionalism. What also surprised me was he always replied and answered my questions at the first time I asked him. Highly recommend!

Marc was kind enough to speak with me on the phone to explain my options to file taxes as an expat. He was professional and came across as a subject matter expert. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone looking to file their taxes especially if they're expats.

I don’t know where we would be without Marc and his team!!! Our tax situation was far too complicated to consider doing it by ourselves as expats. When we found Marc all our worries were answered! He not only filed our taxes throughly and in time but also encouraged and trained us into good filing behaviours to really keep on top of all the details! A very friendly and helpful team. If you are looking for tax advisors, look no further!

Marc is very knowledgeable and pays great attention to detail. It is rarity to find a CPA like him that has such a good grasp on how to file taxes as an F1-Student. It was a pleasure talking to him and I learned a lot from our phone call.

I went to an extend to find the best CPA in the US to do my taxes as an Expat living in the US. The IRS in the US is very difficult to deal with but after finding ProTax and teaming up with Marc Strohl, he made my tax filling a perfect process. I have used Protax now for many years and would change a thing. To give you an example; I my case the IRS made a significant mistake one year and charged me a lot of extra money what they demanded for me to pay a.s.a.p, Marc Strohl took not only care of this matter (fixings the IRS mistake) but he also made sure I would receive my money back from them as soon as possible. He knows how to put a little pressure on the IRS. All and all, he is a great professional to work with, he does not take any shortcuts and will advice you in the best possible way. He is very prompt with responding and even if its quite, he is still working for you. I have nothing more than great respect for this service. Its hard to find anything close to this (in the US). If you read this because you are looking to find a CPA to put your mind at rest, don't look further, go with ProTax. I do not work or have any ties to ProTax, I am just an Expat that wants other foreign workers to get the level of service we need when working overseas.

I contacted Protax Consulting Services with a query on US estate taxes. They replied promptly and gave me the information I needed. Professional and courteous.

Marc was very helpful in getting some of my initial questions answered even just for the first pro-bono consultation.

Had a half hour open discussion about tax implication of assets in foreign currencies. Seems very knowledgeable. Upfront about legal and tax regulations. I liked that he had contacts in Australia and knew the people there personally (I am an Australian national). Would recommend people to explore potentially hiring him.

I sent an inquiry via their online contact form, and Marc reached out to me just within couple hours to schedule a complimentary 30-minute consultation for the next day. He was extremely knowledgeable and showed his concern for my situation.

I couldn't say enough positive things about Marc. He was extremely helpful and prompt with his responses and even went the extra mile to call me and talk through my concerns while he was on vacation. His knowledge is unparalleled and I have no hesitations moving forward with his firm. Thanks Marc!

I used PROTAX Consulting Services for 6 years while I was working overseas. The services I received were of the highest quality. Marc Strohl is a top of the line CPA. He and his team were always available with quick turnaround to questions with expert responses and advice.

I have been working with Protax Consulting Services for the past 10 years. Upon moving from Toronto to NYC in the summer of 2007 to take on a permanent role at one of the large foreign banks, I had no idea how complex the cross boarder tax filing process was going to be for the next several years. My employer used the services of one of the top 5 tax firms to file my taxes the first year after I moved. But I was on my own after that. I was referred to Protax by a friend who moved to the US just a year earlier. Working with Protax over the years to address the cross boarder and dual tax filing has been a blessing. The Protax team's detailed knowledge of the tax laws in Canada and the US, their timeliness in addressing every matter, their attention to detail, and their professionalism is top quality. I stand behind every word I say here considering I have worked with them for 10 years and I highly recommend them especially when cross border tax matters are involved.
