Duluth Small-business Tax Preparers

My spouse and I work regular salary jobs, but also have a small retail side business (bigger than a hobby, but not big enough to support a family and pay insurance, etc.) I don’t think my small-time preparer is going to register under the new guidelines and I have been a little skeptical about recent year’s filings.

I’ve worked with big accounting houses in the past, but they’re way too expensive and conservative. I don’t want someone to get too clever, but also a preparer that doesn’t think every gray area automatically defaults to the government.

If you own a small business and have a bit of advice or a recommendation, I would appreciate it. If you’re a tax preparer, I’d rather hear from your customers directly.

Tom Curran rocks. Great person, smart, fast, organized, personable, specializes in small businesses and self-employed people. Highly recommended! His son, Abe, is very active in local theatre.

I know you've said you don't care for the big tax houses, but I've found Sheila Olmstead at HR Block to be immensely helpful and intelligent at navigating the murky waters of the IRS, and the cost hasn't been out of line either. 

She's located next to Uncle Lou's Cafe or you can call her at 218-727-7337.
