Client Testimonials

  • Bill has always been very helpful and patient with his time and willing to advise beyond accounting matters. His response is immediate, and I value his counsel on issues that may not be just accounting related. Bill is there when I need him.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • Bill Fritts is a pleasure to work with. He is very intelligent, very courteous, very knowledgeable, and most agreeable. He has always given me the most valuable financial advice and I trust him in doing so. He returns any phone calls or emails in a timely manner, and I like the "updates" his office sends to me, keeping me informed of the changing accounting laws that have a direct impact on my file.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • Bill Fritts has been very professional and honest every time we have dealt with him with our income.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • Bill Fritts is the greatest. He is very knowledgeable and proactive with reminders on deadlines. He has been extremely patient with my request and schedule limitations. We have been with SEK since 2006 and would not consider anywhere else as long as we can work with Bill.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • Bill Fritts has taken care of our business and personal taxes for many years. We would not trust anyone else.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • Bill is accessible, experienced, and calming. He provides guidance and explanation (repeatedly sometimes) without judgment, and his level of patience is immeasurable.

    A Hagerstown Tax Client

  • I have enjoyed working with William Fritts over the year. He has helped me transition from a corporation to an LLC as I downsized. My business is very small, but I have never felt I was small in importance with Bill.  Thank you, Bill.
