Taxmantra is unarguably the best website for any tax-related matter that you might have. Very easy to use and the ticketing system is highly intuitive and user-friendly. I used their service during the peak tax season and was amazingly surprised by the fast responses and turnaround time. Since then I have recommended the service to several friends and family members who have been nothing but delighted by the service.

Guys, if you are looking for a CA who will travel your start-up journey with you, it has to be Taxmantra.com . Alok has given us support at every step possible, sometimes not even charging for it (on many occasions) just because he cares. And, you have absolutely no clue how much I harass Vivekananda and the others in the team – with delays, super delays, weird queries, and what not – and they don’t even flinch, let alone complain And, I really don’t know what we would do without their help.

Being a college entrepreneur, these legal tasks often come across a boring. Taxmantra has freed up my time in these respects, improving the productivity and minimizing lapses. Taxmantra has also served as an advisor and mentor in different aspects of our investment process. I would recommend Taxmantra for these kinds of funding and investment solutions.
