After serving as a corporate accountant and Controller for such companies as Cargill and Ford Motor Company, Fred started his own public accounting firm in 1988.  Initially focused on serving the Monroe, Michigan business community, the company expanded its tax preparation practice when it became the first accounting firm to offer electronic filing of returns in the Monroe area.  He became an Enrolled Agent* in 2001 and has steadily directed the expansion of the firm’s tax practice, assisting clients in all 50 states in resolving their tax problems.  Fred is committed to establishing a personal relationship with each client and serving their best interests in all accounting, tax preparation and business consulting needs.

*  Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the Internal Revenue Service awards because these individuals have earned the priviledge of representing taxpayers before the IRS by either passing a comprehensive test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee.
