Tax season is right around the corner and Tax Pro, the new small business that just opened its doors at 119 E Base Street, Suite A, has cut the ribbon just in time to be of help.
Donnell Davis, president of Tax Pro, originally from Madison, attended Texas Southern University and soon started working at Tax Break in Texas.
He became interested in doing tax work after wondering how so many rich people ended up paying so little in taxes. Now he is back in Madison, working to help moderate and low-income families and individuals – people who can least afford to overpay their taxes – helping them make the most of whatever credits or deductions they are eligible for.
“I like to try to help someone out,” he said. “Not just at tax time, but by helping you and your family decide what’s best for you during the whole tax year.”
He provides help for folks who really don’t understand the tax business that well, and admits that at one time, that included himself. He also points out that the tax law is constantly changing and evolving; each year, Congress makes more changes to the tax code. This year, they still haven’t quite finished updating the codes with all the changes they passed in the last session.
At the ribbon-cutting Thursday, Jan, 12, Cindy Vees of the Madison Chamber of Commerce was on hand with the ceremonial ribbon and giant scissors to mark the occasion and welcome Tax Pro into the business community. Davis, along with family and friends, including his pastor, Rev. Joseph Andrews of Mt. Olive Primitive Baptist Church, celebrated with refreshments and a sheet cake decorated with the Tax Pro logo.
Tax Pro is located in the Madison Glass Doctor Building on Base Street, almost directly across from the Mansion; the office occupies one of the suites facing Base Street.
Davis invites anyone who needs sound tax advice to drop by the office, or contact him at (850) 253-2191 or (850) 673-6333. The doors are open and ready for business.
As he puts it: “You’ve tried the rest, now trust the best – Tax Pro.”
