Hello, my name is Maria Santorini. I have over thirty years experience in the accounting field and over fifteen years preparing taxes. I became an Enrolled Agent in order to offer clients additional services. I pride myself on being up-to-date with all the changes in the industry as well as the changes in the tax code. I am also a QuickBooks ProAdvisor and am able to assist business owners in any employee training and consulting.
As an enrolled agent I have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns. The enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. To maintain this elite status I must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
Like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), I have unlimited practice rights. This means I am unrestricted as to which taxpayers I can represent, what types of tax matters I can handle, and which IRS offices I can represent clients before. Unlike, attorneys and CPAs, I am not limited to the state in which my license is with. Because my priviledge is awarded by the Internal Revenue Service, I am able to represent clients in all states.
I work with you on a personal level to determine the best solutions for your unique needs. I am your trusted partner in success. I offer a full range of professional services at a fair price, and give you the individual attention that you deserve.
My software background is primarily QuickBooks, but I have also used Peachtree, Macola, and Great Plains.
