Hello, my name is Joan
Wilkinson, also known as the Tax Queen! I am the President and founder of
Tax Queen Inc. I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with
an emphasis in Finance from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA.
I started working in the corporate world over twelve years ago experiencing the
accounting departments from large corporations such as Coors Brewing Company and PacifiCare. I left the corporate jungle to pursue my family life and
refocus my goals. I was not happy with the 9 to 5 and wanted to be able to
teach others the business skills I had learned. I began subcontracting my
bookkeeping services out on a part-time basis until I eventually built up a
clientele (some of which are still with me today, thank you!) to make me
officially "in business"! These past years have been so wonderful to
me. Today, I am fortunate to have a very successful business that has
doubled in size each and every year since I started. Who else would you
want helping you with your business?!
They also call me the
"Deduction Queen"! Being familiar with law enforcement families, I specialize in law
enforcement deductions. As a parent, home owner, investor and self-employed
entrepreneur, I also have expertise in small business, medical, child care and
family deductions. I am registered, insured and bonded in the state of
California to prepare all types of Income Tax Returns. Don't be fooled by
preparers who do not sign the returns they prepare or who are not properly
registered with the State to perform such services.
I, along side of my team of qualified bookkeepers, can provide services to
meet all of your personal and business needs. I also
have access to other professionals in my field, such as Certified Public
Accountants, Logistics Analysts, Business Advisors and Financial
I am a member of the
National Society of
Tax Professionals and, as required by state law, am registered with the
California Tax Education Council. Annual
certification is required to stay registered with the state. I also have a
registered Preparer Tax Identification Number as legally required with the IRS. My business
is also registered, as required by city ordinance, with the City of Los Angeles
and carries standard business liability insurance. We take being in
business very serious.
I look forward to meeting you and
helping you get your business where you want it to be!
