As a small business owner, I inevitably have to take on a lot of roles in my business. By partnering with Capital Tax & Consulting, I have felt a sense of relief that I am documenting what I need to document and optimizing the return on my investments. The team answers questions as they arise, which has been a huge asset. They act as a true partner in my business and care about their clients. They know their stuff and guide their clients towards the types of services that best fit their business. For me, I wanted yearly tax support, but also someone to make sure I am on track each quarter. They have taken that on and have provided guidance every step of the way.
