Kruze's software-based approach to tax returns allowed me to self-service and avoid communication friction. Everything was reviewed by a CPA. I always knew where we were in the process!

Brent Perez

CFO
Safegraph
As a startup, moving quickly is a top priority for us and we just needed to get our tax return done. After we uploaded our docs, we got our tax return in 3 days! E-filing was confirmed by Day 4. Super responsive and helpful!

Casey McKerchie

VP, Operations
Calm.com
We tried using other CPAs to prep our startup tax return only to find that they weren't startup experts. Kruze knows R&D, SAFE Notes, SaaS, and venture debt and they gave us valuable advice. We have 100% confidence in their work.
