"Personal attention" seems to be a catch-all phrase; however sensitivity to our needs and understanding the limitations of our resources is a greatly-appreciated hallmark of Harmon Burstyn's services to Festival Opera. In addition to providing the required calculations and documents for our 990, Harmon regularly looks ahead and alerts us to deadlines and opportunities in advance. He also maintains a steady communication with us to provide white papers on helpful issues that we may need to be aware of – or need to address. We strongly recommend him to other nonprofit organizations and businesses for his professionalism, candor, integrity, and impeccability in supporting us on tax issues large and small."

Sara Nealy, General Director
Festival Opera

"Harmon has been a great asset to Walk SF. He's extremely knowledgeable, responsive and very thoughtful, too! Harmon has done our accounting for years, and every year the process is seamless, quick and painless -- what more can you ask for when it comes to taxes? I'd certainly recommend Harmon to other small non-profits. His prices are competitive and the results are well worth it."
