As a tax preparer and being with the public has always been a pleasure for me. I take pride in helping clients with whatever issues dealing with their taxes that may come up. I have had my own business for 20 years and for the last two seasons I have been a part of the Liberty family. I am the kind of person that will fight for my clients, help them get the best return that I can get them. I believe in quality work instead of quantity. If it takes 2 hours to do a return then I take pride that once that client leaves my office they are happy or at least relieved knowing that we did everything that we could for them. I have had people come from 8 hours away because they needed someone to help them with 6 years of taxes that they was so over whelmed and did not know what to do. Once we was finished and she realized that she was getting a return for most of those years she was so excited. She said that she just needed the right person to sit her down, explain everything and basically make her see that what she was doing each year was the correct way for her.
She went back to Iowa and told all her friends about her experience. I was proud of myself and knew that her word of mouth was worth the world to me.
I love to teach others and make them see that no matter how many years you have been in this business, that you do learn something that you may not have known before.
I will go out of my way to help anyone, even if they can not afford to pay me. I feel it is better to help them get caught up then to make them pay when you know that they can not afford . The lord has blessed me with the ability to help others and that is my award in life.
If I was to win, I would continue to help others in my community. It would make a differents.
