A business owner is adept at juggling many roles at once – acting as hiring manager one minute and head of marketing the next. Some days feel like a constant flow of decisions to be made. And one thing is clear when you look back on a day like that: the more information you had at the time, the better decisions you made. Having an accountant who has a grasp on the financial health of your business will mean having access to quality information when you need it.

Meeting and helping people who feel overwhelmed with all of the different aspects of tax preparation or running a business

I didn't begin my journey by falling in love with problems—I began by falling in love with solutions. My gift is helping people.

Tax regulations change all the time, and it takes resources to keep up with it all. I am a certified public accountant who is required to take at least 40 hours of continuing professional education every year. I spend a lot more time than that on CPE and daily reading to ensure I am on top of regulatory changes and tax court rulings. Mutual respect is essential. You should feel comfortable asking your tax return preparer questions about how they prepare your tax return without feeling intimidated. I enjoy answering your questions and educating you on your tax situation, and I equip you with steps you can take to lower your taxes next year. Price is a key factor but make sure you know how comprehensive the tax preparation service is. Many tax professionals are missing in action between April 15 your engagement letter. Can you count on their help? Will they charge you to correct errors they made? If you call with a question, will you receive a bill for it? If you are looking for an income tax preparer who you can trust to file your taxes correctly and efficiently, and stand by you if the IRS comes knocking, you have come to the right place.
