About Our Company
Betty's Tax Service has been serving the Sand Mountain area since 1970 and officially became Betty's Tax Service, LLC in 2010, and is committed to providing tax support, advice, and guidance for both individuals and small businesses during any time of the year.
About Our Staff
Since we basically live out of the office for three and a half months of the year, we try to make the office seem a bit more like home than a sterile environment. Our employees are often smiling or laughing about something, and visitors can see jokes, photographs, and artwork hanging from the walls.
Every year, all of our tax preparers complete the voluntary Annual Filing Season Program continuing education courses that includes information on new tax laws, ethics, identity theft prevention, and two elective topics of their choice, and must obtain a passing grade to maintain their AFSP designation.
Mrs. Sanford, AFSP
Mrs. Sanford joined the office in 2006 to help manage the copies and front desk, became our newest preparer and bookkeeper in 2010, and assumed ownership of the company in October 2017.
Most know her as the lady in the back office with the artwork on the walls.
Mrs. Kirby, RTRP
Mrs. Kirby founded the business in 1970 and has over 40 years of experience with income taxes. She passed the IRS competency test that was mandatory during 2010-2013, and holds the certificate designating her as a Registered Tax Return Preparer. While she is exempt from taking the AFTR course, she joins us each year for our classes and tests.
Most know her as the lady with the long grey hair in the right office, directly behind the front office room and next to the hallway printer.
Ms. Boatwright, AFSP
Ms. Boatwright joined us for 2017, and has spent a few seasons helping in the front office.
