Enrolled Agent / NC Notary Public
Joan is an Enrolled Agent and NC Notary Public. From 2006 to 2010 she had a successful business, but received no tax advice from her CPA. At the end of her 1st year in business, she owed the IRS $100,000! She mortgaged her home to pay the IRS. After she sold the business, Joan went to Tax School with a passion to educate small business owners to better understand their taxes.
She began preparing taxes in 2011. Needless to say, she is passionate about tax planning for small businesses and individuals. Everyone should pay “their fair share”, but should take advantage of every deduction.
Joan has a B.S. from Kean University (NJ) and Master’s Degree from Stevens Institute of Technology (NJ). She had a successful career in the Telecom Industry for 25 years before moving to North Carolina in 2005.
