My name is Wendy Uken and I am an Enrolled Agent (IRS Designation).
I’ve known from an early age that I enjoy working with numbers. When I was about 5 or 6, I would take the bus home from school every afternoon. At that time my greatest joy was being able to take a bus schedule home (yes folks, this was the time before smart phones) and pretend they were accounts I was adding up. My mom saw how happy this made me so she bough me an accounting calculator to play with.
After college, I had the opportunity work as a bookkeeper in a family-owned chained of music stores. This experience allowed me to indulge in the wonderful world of numbers, bank reconciliation and profit and loss statements for 40 hours a week! Honestly, it was like a dream come true. It may seem silly but I thought of myself as a number’s detective; always tracking the ebb and flow of income streams.
A few years later, I had the pleasure and privilege of working in the specialized area of Tax Resolution. I thoroughly enjoyed the work because I was able to help taxpayers overcome financial devastation. When I was assigned a client they were typically in aggressive collection action; wages being garnished, banks being levied and Revenue Officers at their door. By the end of our time together they had a favorable resolution firmly established and they were no longer in fear for their livelihood.
Today, I help entrepreneurs and small businesses thrive by maximize their deductions through proper bookkeeping, and I serve the general public with Tax Preparation and Tax Resolution services. Since I am an Enrolled Agent and QuickBooks ProAdvisors I possess a powerful combination of experience, formal training and knowledge.
My aim is to help people take advantage of the tax code so they can keep more money in their pockets.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day,
