Trusted, Committed, All-Year Round


Happy people make inspiring tax advisors: this is the motto that we abide by. By providing a positive, team-oriented environment for our staff, we are able to create a family that we openly invite our clients into, establishing a space of mutual trust and respect. We believe that these relationships are what allows us to really excel with all your tax needs.


After years of experience, it is safe to say that our team has the ability to deal with a variety of tax issues. We offer a wide range of services, from individual taxation and retirement planning to cost segregation studies and more! With Encore, it’s no question that you’re in the right hands.


At Encore, we like to say that we have big firm capabilities with a small firm personality. We take the time to get to know each individual client and their personalized concerns in order to provide services tailored directly to them, and unlike big firms, we don’t ignore clients who generate less fees. Each client is important to us.


With us, we are always upfront with how much you are going to pay, and because of the reduced amount of overhead, you only pay for the amount of work done in order to save you the most money possible.
