Since tax is quickly becoming a small business owners major overhead expense, we prepare most of our reports on a tax basis by an Enrolled Agent. What is anEnrolled Agent? It is a federal certification governedby the IRS that allows me to represent tax clients up through the highest levels of tax court. EAs are fast becoming the preferred professionals by IRS agents, because we make tax our focus.
Trudy T Hetzel, EA
Owner since 2003
Trudy fell in love with accounting in high school when she took bookkeeping and computer software classes. She worked full-time during the day and earned her bachelors degree from Ottawa University at night. Later she found the tax professional status of Enrolled Agent and determined that was the next learning objective. Experience is very important as a tax professional, but it is is also imperative to keep current on the constantly changing tax laws. Through continuing education, professional forums and publications, she fills her need for constant learning.She also loves learning all the tips and tricks of the QuickBooks Accounting software and keeps her ProAdvisor status current each year. Shes a bit of a workaholic, but loves it when she can find tax solutions or resolutions for her clients.
When shes not working, her passion is her family. She has been married to her best friend since 1995 and together they have two beautiful and amazing children. She also enjoys and supports various community and charitable organizations. She enjoys most musical genres, reading historical fiction, children, musical theater and puzzles for relaxation.
