Joan is an Enrolled Agent and NC Notary Public. She has been preparing taxes since 2010. Prior to preparing taxes, she and her husband, Ron, were small business owners who received very poor tax advice from their CPA. She is passionate about tax planning for small businesses and individuals. Everyone should pay “their fair share” without missing a single deduction! Joan has a Master’s Degree in Telecommunications Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology and worked in the Telecom Industry for 25 years before moving to North Carolina in 2005. She volunteers regularly at SCORE (free counseling for Small Businesses) and VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance). Joan is known locally as The Tax Lady. Visit her Facebook page at TaxLadyNC.
