"Great accountants, A+ Service with smile"
I have done my taxes with Pace Accounting for the third year now with Nick Tylipakis. Every year he has worked with me effortlessly to ensure no stone was left unturned with any question I had.
Even when I left NJ to Florida, Nick worked with me to ensure that I had all the correct filings in place and received the proper returns. He was easy to contact by any means and was often available at times when most services would not be open. It has been a delight using them for their great services and will continue to do so. 🙂
"Good old honest service"
Ray pace has been doing my personal and business taxes for over 10 years now. This includes personal real estate Schedule E and LLC work. I know that I can always call Ray anytime of year with a complex issue and he and his team always provide great advice in a timely fashion. Its nice to be known and treated as a valued customer, not just a invoice. Thank you Pace Accounting!
"Pace Accounting – Highly Recommended"
"Need an accountant you can count on? Go to Ray Pace!"
Ray is the ultimate pro. On a recommendation from a family friend, we set up an appointment with Ray and nearly 10 years later, he is still our family accountant.
He has helped me maximize my returns in ways I’ve never even thought of. I know I can call on Ray anytime during the year with confusing questions that he always has the answers to. With something as important as taxes, it’s critical to have someone you can count on and Ray is definitely someone you can always count on.
"best experience when doing taxes!!!!"
I had been using Raymond Pace for years by recommendation, he is amazing and probably one of the most knowledgeable tax person I had ever used. Last year Raymond was very busy and I had to use his son Chris. Chris was fantastic and as knowledgeable as his father Raymond. We live in Georgia now and will still use them they make you feel at home and comfortable its a great experience and well worth the money you pay to have your taxes done.
"Big City Accounting with small town feel"
I was introduced to Ray Pace and George Tylipakis by my office manager back in the the late 90’s. They quickly became my accountants, both for the company and personally. Although they are over the bridge from Manhattan, I picked them because they are excellent at explaining business issues and personal accounting details. They are always available for a consult, offering expert advice with a warm and friendly attitude. I can pick up the phone, email them or set an appointment without having to wait more than a day for a response. They are excellent at what they do and always ready to offer professional help. Real Pros.
My wife and I started with Raymond Pace in 1997 as NY residents. In 2000 we moved to Connecticut and to this day have remained loyal clients.
Processing is very convenient (phone,email,fax,mail).
Raymond has always graciously answered all our questions whether it’s tax season or not.
We have highly recommended him to friends and family alike. Extremely reliable and trustworthy. We wouldn’t go anywhere else!

While I’m a relatively new client, I can confidently say I won’t be needing to look for an accountant so long as I’m here in New York. The perfect balance of professional and friendly, I couldn’t have gotten my LLC up an running without Chris’ help. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
I’ve been a client for a few years now and I am very satisfied with the service and wouldn’t go anywhere else. The staff is professional, friendly and helpful and all your questions get answered really quickly via email or phone and you get good advice on what’s the best for your case.

I have been a client of Pace Accounting for over 20 years as have several members of my family. I implicitly trust Ray Pace and his entire staff of experts in the preparation of my annual taxes, some years which were extremely complex.

"Great, Experienced Accountants"
Pace Accounting has handled our business & personal accounting for nearly 30 years. There was no internet, email, or even fax machine then & as these modern conveniences often lead to less direct service, that has not been the case with Pace. Their staff is knowledgable, trustworthy, professional, & personable. They are aware of all the tax changes as they happen which correlates to their customers saving money.
"100% + the best !!"
A friend of our referred us to Pace Accounting 3 years ago and we wish it was 30 – George and the team are very hardworking, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful.
We have total trust in them and every year they do a great job for us. They show sincere interest in your affairs and will advise you on what is always the best thing to do for you and your family.
After our first year – it was clear to my wife and I that our first choice was always Pace Accounting, no question.
Sadly – it is only once a year and often we wish we had more ‘stuff’ to bring to them during the year as their service is so good, we often feel like once a year is too infrequent !!
Recommend Pace Accounting to anyone within family or outside – your taxes and any related business is in safe, trustworthy and the BEST hands in New York !!

We have been using Pace Accounting for personal and business services for over 5 years, and will continue to do so as long as we live in the tri-state area! Ray is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and always available to answer any questions, not matter how small.
If you need assistance in not only tax matters, but starting and registering a business, Pace is the place to go. The service is so fantastic, we make the trek to Long Island from New Jersey every year.
Even after my wife and I moved to Connecticut we were not about to change accountants given our very positive experience working with Ray and staff. In a nutshell, for nearly 15 years we have received prompt, courteous and well-informed service about our personal tax returns. No email goes unanswered and, unlike other professional services we use, Pace Accounting never makes us feel that we might be bothering them when a tax question arises, often out of the blue. Finally, we think there prices are reasonable given our particular tax situation. We highly recommend this family-run accounting and tax service company!
"A place you can really count on!"
With regards to Mr. Raymond Pace and the staff at Pace Accounting, I have had the privilege of using their services for over 15 years, and trust no one better. When that “taxing” time comes along each year, I know there is a reliable place to go, who is knowledgeable on the ever-changing tax laws. And just as important is the personal service I receive—I believe I am working with a friend that is there for me, to help me. Thanks, Mr. Pace!

"tax service at its best!"
This is a small tax service that treats you as a friend as well as a customer. Raymon Pace has been doing my taxes for several years and I have recommended several people that have all said he was great. He stands behind his work and is always there when we needed him for a tax question. He is priced competitively and after doing my taxes with H&R block I could not believe the difference between doing my taxes with a decent tax person to doing it with a great tax person. It was worth every penny. I highly recommend pace tax service.
- Pros: excellent job in doing taxes
- Cons: long wait to get an appointment but worth the wait
