About the Gold Standard Tax Team

The main mission of Gold Standard Tax has been and always will be...

...to put quality before quantity, detail before speed, and client's interests before personal financial gain.

Gold Standard initially launched for the purpose of preparing financial projections for various entities. But business quickly flourished and we soon realized the need to expand into other fields of financial services. 

This allows us to offer the full financial spectrum: Tax, Bookkeeping, Payroll, and Business Consulting

The professionals that stand behind the Gold Standard name not only are degreed and licensed, but are also exceptionally passionate about the work that they do. 

Meet the team below.

"I relish the fact that numbers never lie, they can only be right or wrong, and when they balance - it equals completeness. I enjoy my work, but even more I cherish the meaningful relationships I form while doing it."
