About Maxine Taylor
Maxine discovered her innate talent over twenty-six years ago and dove in wholeheartedly to develop herself as a well-rounded bookkeeping and accounting professional.
Since 1988, she has kept current with regular continued education courses in accounting and tax. She became an enrolled agent with the IRS so that she could assist her clients in preparing their taxes and represent them, if needed. She puts her knowledge into practice supporting small to mid-size businesses.
She developed her business to be a one-stop shop for entrepreneurs. Her intention is to assist them from setup to tax savings, so that they have an accurate knowledge of the health of their business.
Maxine prides herself on her speed, accuracy, and high integrity. She’s developed long-term relationships with many of her clients and holds herself to a high standard of quality. There is more than just a good work ethic underlying her approach; Maxine is passionate about her role in the development of her clients’ finances.
“Armed with accurate records of past and current books, clients are better able to make projections and financial decisions for their businesses.”
