MY OFFICE IS OPEN! Each weekday, with the exception of Thursday, I will be working in the office by myself. The office is open from 8:00 until 5:00 on these days. On Thursdays, I work from home and the office is closed. However, I will be checking phone messages throughout the day, and of course will be responding to email.
Dana C. Maher, CPA P.S.
I provide tax preparation and planning services for individuals, small businesses and tax exempt organizations throughout Thurston County. Many of my clients come to me for both their personal and business tax needs. I take pride in developing long lasting relationships with my clients and their families.
Professional Tax Preparation and Planning
I am a sole practitioner who specializes in preparing tax returns for individuals, small businesses, and tax exempt organizations. I have been in business since 1994; always operating as a sole practitioner. My intent has always been to keep my tax practice small enough that I can know each client as an individual.
Why should I choose Dana to prepare my taxes?
In short: This is my full time job. And I love what I do!
As a sole practitioner, I am the person who will meet with you, get to know you, gather your tax documents and prepare your tax return. Your tax return is not passed off to somebody else in the office.
While my job naturally involves a lot of numbers, in order to do my job correctly I believe it’s important to develop a personal relationship with each client. I encourage my clients to meet with me on a regular basis; especially during the busy “tax season”. I never encourage my clients to simply “drop-off” their tax documents.
Security is a Top Priority
We work very hard to safeguard our clients’ data. This includes continuously monitoring our systems and practices pertaining to both technology and paper documents. Our IT Administrator, Rick Schaefer, is a software engineer with years of experience with internet security. We never click on links in email correspondence, and we never download documents that are not sent to us via a secure site. Rick works very hard to find the simplest solution, which will also provide the maximum level of security, when advising us regarding technology and software. We use ShareFile to securely and efficiently transfer data via the internet.
