I know that the main thing you look for in a tax professional is that they know what they are talking about. Not only is Mr. Heyde a true professional, he is very easy to talk to and knows the answer to your questions. You also will not have to have your taxes redone later, I feel very confident he knows the tax field inside and out. I recommend Chuck Heyde to anyone.

Working together with Jim Landrigan of GEMMS has been a real pleasure. With me being an expatriate and my wife an independent contractor, filing taxes used to be a challenge. That was until we got in contact with Jim. Ever since he's been helping us with our taxes, it's been really painless. The knowledge that he has and the true professionalism have been a real pleasure these last 4 years. I can recommend GEMMS to anybody who wants help with filing their taxes!!!

As an expat just moved to the US, this was my first time filing a US tax return. Chuck did a great job of explaining and working me through the many complexities of the different levels of tax as well as the international considerations I had as an expat. Thanks for your help GEM and Chuck!

This year we decided to use Chuck Heyde to do our taxes. We do not have time to spend doing taxes and thanks to Chuck he took it out of our hands and decreased the confusion. Chuck showed us the easiest, most efficient and cost friendly way to get our taxes done. Chuck has been very patient with our situations and with the issues than can arise with living out of the country. We are very pleased with his services and will continue to use GEMMS.
