About Us

Taxes are the other inescapable element of life and as the higher office holders continuously change the tax laws, the demand for professional tax preparers remain.  Large companies usually afford a full-time accountant, whereas small businesses seek the services of outside accountants and tax preparers. That is where Donna Smith Tax & Accounting Services comes in. We have the expertise to provide you with the services you need.

We have over 28 years experience in the field of accounting and taxation.  Our goal is to help the family owned businesses, sole proprietors, small businesses, subcontractors, and of course… individuals, get the most deductions (legally) allowed.  We are dedicated to our continuing education and we take advanced training throughout the year. We stay current on the changes to tax laws, so you can rest assured the information we provide is accurate and up to date.

We believe in cultivating relationships, which is why we have an excellent client retention rate. We pride ourselves in, honesty, accuracy and the high quality professional services we provide. We are available year round and offer accounting, bookkeeping, tax preparation, payroll and much more.  If you received a letter from the IRS, we can help with that too.

From the beginning, our philosophy was to provide down to earth, simplified, and easy to comprehend tax and accounting services for small businesses and individuals.
