Readers chose Buffie The Tax Heiress as the best, giving her 81 percent of the votes cast. "I think it's great!" Buffie Purselle — AKA the Tax Heiress — told East Atlanta Patch. "We do our best to make the tax preparation process as stress free as possible so to learn that your readers think that we are the best for last-minute tax prep — typically a very stressful time — is very exciting!" Purselle, a Valdosta native, has called Atlanta home for 15 years — the last six of which have been in Candler Park. A 13-year veteran of the accounting field, profit and loss statements and balance sheets are in her blood. "I am a third-…

Which tax preparer do you think is best?
April is here and in a few short weeks we'll be faced with another season of rendering unto Washington what is Washington's. Traditionally, taxes are due April 15. But we have two extra days this year — our checks to Uncle Sam aren't due until April 17 — because the 15th falls on a Sunday and the 16th is Emancipation Day in Washington D.C. Still, many of us will likely wait until the last minute before filing. So East Atlanta Patch is asking you to vote for the best tax preparer in our neighbrohoods to go to in this week's Readers' Choice Poll: Tax Solutions Mr. Tax of America Liberty Tax Service Clyde's Tax & Accounting Buffie the Tax Heiress Cast your vote using the online ballot below.

A Southern tradition but not everyone in the South can make it the proper way.
Sweet tea. It's as much a part of the Southern identity and culture as porch swings and lazy Sunday evenings. You'd think with three key ingredients — tea, sugar and ice — it would be easy. But not all sweet teas are made the same. Some are sweet enough to chew; others are anything but. So this week, we ask you to vote on which place offers the best sweet tea. Drip Joe's HodgePodge Vickery's No Mas! Cantina My Coffee shop at East Lake Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. Ties will be broken by whichever business has the most positive comments in the comments section below. We will announce the winner at noon Friday.

East Atlanta Village restaurant voted best in Readers' Choice poll.
When it comes to outdoor restaurant hangouts, the Midway Pub comes out on top. East Atlanta Patch readers picked the restaurant as having the best outdoor patio experience with 57 percent of the votes cast. The Midway's patio is popular year-round — enclosed for winter and open during spring and summer — hosting not only dining patrons but also special events such as fundraisers, music performances and for fútbol fans, broadcasts of the World Cup Soccer tournament. Another draw is the "pet's welcome" policy, a favorite with locals who want to include man's best friend in family nights out. Two other eateries in the EAV, The Glenwood and Holy Taco, tied for second place. Each received 14 percent of the votes cast. Next week, we'll be …
