We spend a significant number of days in tax classes and working on updating our brains and systems for the coming tax season each winter. We also like to spend time with our families and friends during the holidays. Below you will find the dates that our lights will be off and our doors will be locked. We are also in the middle of a small construction project and our phones are down. Please use your online account messaging to communicate with us. The office is open by appointment only at this time. We will re-open for tax season on January 3, 2023!
