Michelle Divan has been a professional accountant since 2021. I am passionate about helping my clients navigate the complex world of finance and taxes, and I take pride in providing personalized and attentive service to each of my clients.
In 2018, I opened my own solo practice, which has allowed me to offer even more tailored and specialized services to my clients. I am committed to staying up-to-date on the latest industry trends and regulations, and I am proud to have earned my EA designation in 2020.
What is an Enrolled Agent Anyway? Enrolled Agents, abbreviated as EA, specialize in U.S. tax law and the tax code and have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS. The most common services provided by EA’s are preparing tax returns for individuals and businesses, advising clients of tax consequences to specific life events and/or situations, and representing clients before all administrative levels of the IRS and state taxing authority. Enrolled agents represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for tax issues including audits, collections and appeals. EA’s are not employees or agents of the IRS, instead they are individuals who are federally authorized advocates for the taxpayer.
Michelle has a very diverse work history. She has worked in telecommunications, technology, aerospace, fitness, and healthcare services – all in addition to Tax Preparation and Bookkeeping. This diversity in industries allows her to analyze your finances from many different angles. Her multi-faceted career has always returned to her financial roots. Her goal will always be to help you increase your income, while balancing your tax liability to be most beneficial for you.
