About

We’re Shoebox, your personal tax concierge.

As an individual or sole proprietor with complex taxes, where can you go for quality service? At the low-cost, high-churn chains, you get what you pay for. Meanwhile, at the pricey CPA firms, you’re a small fish in a pond of bigger, super demanding clients.

At Shoebox Tax Prep, we offer the best of both worlds: top-notch service at a great value. Every client who walks into our office is a VIP, granted our undivided attention and personalized financial advice.

We make taxes feel easy.

With more than 20 years of experience in financial planning, we’ve helped countless individuals, couples, and businesses get their taxes in order. We know if you come to us, taxes are the last thing you want to be doing — so we go out of our way to make the entire process simple and painless. Just stop by our office, hand us a box of your files, and we’ll take care of it from there.
