I am Jean Emery, EA. I provide tax and accounting services to the Prescott and quad-cities area. I, also, provide a unique service - I will come to your home or office! I am reasonably priced, and take pride in helping my clients.
I prepare personal and business income tax returns, financial statements, payroll tax returns, sales tax returns, bank reconciliations, cash flow analysis, and year end W2's and 1099's. I am also well qualified in the installation and operational knowledge of Quickbooks. I can help you to learn how to use Quickbooks yourself, as well as, provide monthly accounting services for you.
If there is ever a question, I am only a phone call away.
I have lived in the Prescott area for 21 years, and bring over 35 years of accounting experience with me.
I specialize in retail, small business accounting.
Due to the fact that I have also owned a retail store, I have added insights into the operation of successful businesses. I take great strides to help my clients, and I treat their businesses as if they were my own.
Enrolled Agents have actually been around for quite a long time. After the Civil War, citizens had problems settling claims with the government for property confiscated for use in the war effort. So, in 1884, Congress endowed Enrolled Agents with the power of advocacy to prepare claims against the Government. In 1913, when income tax was passed into law, the job of the Enrolled Agent was expanded to include claims for monetary relief for citizens whose taxes had become inequitable. As the tax law became more complex, the role of the Enrolled Agent increased to include the preparation of the many required tax forms. Additionally, as audits increased, their role evolved into taxpayer advocacy and negotiation, as well.
Enrolled Agents are the only tax professionals authorized by the U.S. Treasury Department, and are granted unrestricted rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. An Enrolled Agent is the highest credential awarded by the IRS, achieved by passing comprehensive exams demonstrating a high level of knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code. They must maintain this expertise through continuing professional education, required by law.
