This was my first experience using an accountant and now I am kicking myself for waiting so long. I’ve always completed my own returns with a popular tax preparation software and have been fine with the results, but I was always left wondering if I inputted the right information. I knew the calculations were fine, but unsure of my user input on some of the questions. Tamsyn found a mistake (user input by me) on a past return which resulted in an additional refund to me. Christmas in August! I love it. I originally found Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits through Yelp and decided to call. From the first answer from the receptionist to the completion of my tax forms, Pivotal has been very courteous and professional. They even helped with advice on a business I am starting and offered other services with people they partner with (web design, graphics, financial planning). This attention to detail in serving their clients exceeded my expectations from an accounting office. I highly recommend Tamsyn and the rest of the staff at Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits for whatever your business or personal tax situation needs. You will be in good hands with professional people who seem to really care about your tax situation.

Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits are awesome! I love them! Tamsyn (head Principal Accountant) really goes to bat for her clients, and it is very evident she is emotionally connected to their business’s overall wellbeing. I’m for sure using the firm for my taxes and know I will be in good hands. Their office is also located in the darling area of Proctor District! I especially like the fact it is above Starbucks, but even more so Megs and More consignment store underneath is a perfect place to wind up the visit to Pivotal. You can use it for retail therapy to shop after doing taxes! Seriously though, I am glad I found the perfect firm to do my taxes- Pivotal is the best and I hope to be a client for years to come.

In the past year, I got married, bought a house, and inherited all the complicated tax forms my spouse brings to the table, so we decided to shell out the money to have an accountant do our tax return. Tamsyn at Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits was wonderful. She gave me a quote on the phone, and kept that promise through signing the returns. She is young, very experienced, and very informed regarding current tax laws and upcoming changes. I’m not sure how prices match up, since it’s my first experience with an accountant, but we were very happy with our quote. We got our tax return in a week and a half (mid-March) and Tamsyn e-filed it for us and set up direct deposit for our return. Some helpful details: I found Pivotal through their A+ Better Business Bureau rating. They’re also a member of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce.

Love this place! Been a client for over 10 years! I never have to worry about things being filed on time and the staff always calls and gets approval on withdrawals from my account. Countless times Tamsyn Manning (owner and head accountant) has gone to bat for me!! She is honest and upfront which is refreshing!!! Thank You for your awesome service!!!


Tamsyn has been preparing my taxes for many years. She originally alerted me that I needed to be paying myself a W-2 salary which I was not doing per my previous tax advisor. Her firm prepares my business and personal return along with my payroll. They have done a very good job for me!

We have used Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits since moving to the UP/Fircrest area. We can’t begin to tell you how completely satisfied we have been with the professional services received as well as such a welcoming attitude directed toward us by everyone in the office.

Pivotal Forensic Accounting and Audits have been doing my taxes – both business and personal – since 2007. The firm principal, Tamsyn, and her staff are astute, timely, and smart. The firm has helped me organize an LLC, keep up on my business licenses, and understand real estate depreciation. Tamsyn is bright and does not take risks with your return. She is pragmatic and firm when discussing options, which may turn some people off, but I appreciate it. She knows something is either right or wrong and can clearly articulate why as well as ramifications. Tamsyn has also demonstrated an ability to conduct what I would call forensic research on processes and old returns. She is detailed and precise. I plan to continue as a Pivotal client as my tax situation increases in complexity. I place my trust in this firm.

We really appreciate the personal service we get from Tamsyn and her team. They are always available and approachable. Between them they always deal directly with my problems. They are often the first professional we turn to when we are looking at something new.
