Christine Griffin Tax Service
My passion is to make sure that each person that I speak with is knowledgeable about their finances, including their taxes. I educate my customers so that they know what to look for during the course of the tax year that may change their financial outlook.
I have been preparing individual taxes for over 10 years and I love what I do. I make sure that I am current with the latest tax laws and I have to become certified an registered each year with IRS via my PTIN.
I enjoy working with people and educating them on how to lower their tax bill, increase their savings, discussing a retirement vehicle and creating their legacy.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I contact the customer via email, preferably, to find out what days and times are available. I then connect with the customer so we can exchange information. If everything is available online we can meet online via ZOOM, if needed and discuss from there their expectations.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am trained each year and take continuing education classes each year. I usually work with a tax company during the tax season as well as for myself, but I am taking a year off from working with the tax company. I am focusing more on my own business.
