Late on a wednesday evening well after business hours Phil took the time to answer several questions I had. He was very clear and concise and gave me a lot clarity to ensure I incorporate correctly. Thanks again Phil ~ ConnectedBox
Phil Hogan has been handling all my Canadian and American tax filings since 2010. He’s successfully dealt with some unusual U.S.source income issues, contacting financial organizations directly and thus avoiding my having to act as a go-between. When it’s occasionally been necessary, he’s been readily available to help handle additional information requests from CRA. The results have all been satisfactory. I recommend him unreservedly as a tax accountant if you have U.S. and Canadian tax obligations — five stars! ~ B. Weeks Victoria BC
We found Phil a few years ago when we needed help navigating the complicated web of filing a US Tax return and Fbar. Phil was very knowledgeable and was a great help to us. He is easy to reach by phone or email and is always prompt with his replies. More recently Phil has helped us with some CRA issues around RRSP over contributions and tax questions regarding retirement planning.
I would highly recommend Phil for any tax issues/questions you may have. He is a pleasure to work with and is well supported by a great team in the office. ~ Jane and Peter
Phil Hogan and his staff have been excellent to work with. Having to file both Canadian and US taxes can be a complicated process. They are professionals who listen to our concerns, give advice and always answer questions in a timely manner. They are by far the best accounting firm we have worked with in 40 years! ~ Judy and Rod

Over the years, both Phil Hogan and Brent England have been of great assistance with my taxes, which are complex due to international reporting requirements and several other factors. Their service has always been professional, more than competent, and responsive to my particular needs. My contacts with their team have been positive. They have also been invaluable with US filing requirements and with providing the most up-to-date advice on what could be a complicated and frustrating situation. I can highly recommend them! ~ Jennifer Gerwing
