How did you get into the tax preparation industry?
I entered the tax industry over two decades ago and recently founded the Home Base Income Tax in a Box franchise with the aim of assisting individuals in navigating complex tax laws effectively. I saw an opportunity to deliver a better, simpler and easier solution to people and business owners needing tax service help, it has and still is the premise of where Prestige Income Tax came from and what drives our entire business.
