EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

Accounting & Tax Services, Inc. provides a wide variety of tax, accounting and planning services. As part of my commitment to my clients' financial health and welfare I have diversified my practice by combining tax planning with financial services. Most advisors don't have a tax background and fail to be aware of the tax consequences of their recommendations. As a CPA I am in the unique position of knowing your tax situation prior to offering recommendations. My first priority is to save you money and help you pursue your financial goals!
