Meet Terri Kirk of The Tax Gals!

Today we’d like to introduce you to Terri Kirk.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Terri. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Our story is simple! We had been working at one of the Big Box Tax Company’s for many years, and we grew tired of seeing the prices they were charging and the products they were always trying to sell.

We thought, what was needed was a truly affordable tax business, where people are put first and not pricing, and that is how The Tax Gals! was created. We wanted to bring back small business neighborhood pricing with a big business feel. We have committed ourselves to provide our clients with the highest quality of work at the most affordable price.

We are proud to say that we have finished up our 4th tax season and have proudly serviced over 1,000 clients. Many of our new clients come from referrals, which is a really nice compliment to have in the every changing tax world.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think every start-up business has its challenges. For The Tax Gals!, our challenge was “how do we get people to learn about us?” With a tax office of some kind at practically every corner, it was going to be an uphill climb to get noticed. We knew the hardest challenge was to get new customers through the front door, but once we did, the rest would fall into place nicely.

We took to the streets at various local Farmer’s Markets, and other City events as well as advertising in a variety of forums to try and spread the word and meet people in person. Today, our challenges are how are we going to serve our growing demand!
