In the Beginning:
Over 20 years ago, Dawn Mainville started doing tax and accounting work while working for an Enrolled Agent (EA) in Irvine, California. With the encouragement of her retiring boss, Dawn opened up her own practice and began working from home doing small business bookkeeping.
While still in California, Dawn decided to expand her practice by adding tax preparation to the services offered to her clients. She first obtained her CTEC license from the State of California and later received her federal license by passing the arduous IRS Special Enrollment Exam to become an Enrolled Agent, which also allows her to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
The Growing Years:
In 2007, after her husband retired from the US Marine Corps, the family picked up and moved to Florida where Dawn opened up an office in downtown Leesburg. Starting out at the Small Business Incubator, while still keeping many California and military clients, her Florida based business rapidly grew. In under a year, Dawn moved her practice out of the Incubator and into her own downtown office space.
Where We Are:
In January of 2012, Dawn re-branded her business, adopting a new company structure and name; Go Figure Tax Solutions LLC. She decided to focus more on individual income tax preparation and to scale back on corporate tax preparation while maintaining her small business bookkeeping and payroll client work.
With the ever-changing economy, Dawn strives to help her clients, and anyone else who calls for advice, to better understand the tax code & laws. She takes pride in knowing that she helps the average taxpayer file a complete and accurate return.
In order to maintain her EA license, and to keep abreast of the current tax code, it is mandatory for Dawn (and every EA) to take continuing professional education courses every year.
