David Yarrington, Owner of Dave's Mercantile Wilder Idaho

Venessa has always had the time to answer my questions, without making me feel stupid, thats why, to me, she will alway be my Tax Lady.  I have never experienced better service! 

Paula D, Renton WA

For anyone who is looking for someone professional, knowledgeable, reliable and consultative to help you with tax preparation, Venessa is a trusted advisor. I have been working with her for the last 9 Years for our Accounting needs plus ongoing Quickbooks consultation. She has been patient and FANTASTIC to work with!!! She genuinely cares about her clients and the best outcome for them. She also stands behind her work, if you get audited, she will navigate through the process with you. She has provided me not only with tax services, but peace of mind. 

Jennifer Brown-Jones, Office Manager at CMTM

Venessa and I have worked together at 2 different companies between 1999 and 2009 and I am not embarrassed to say she taught me everything I know about QuickBooks. I was so sorry to see her move to Washington and miss her expertise in reconciling the bank accounts and credit card statements every month. If you are looking at her website in case she might be able to help you with your business, I can promise you will not be disappointed.
