What others are saying...


Julie is the absolute best. She helped me understand and set up systems for managing my S-Corp!  For the first time, I don't feel stressed or confused, because Julie's competent support has changed how I do accounting and taxes.


Julie is fantastic to work with! She handled the entire process to setup my LLC from start to finish, and made every step feel easy and straightforward.


We love the quick turnarounds, tax tips, video reviews and the fact she's always available for questions. The ability to use the secure, provided TaxDome app to communicate and scan/upload our documents is huge plus.
