About Us

Thomas Taylor, CPA

My goal is to help you make your business better by being more than just a compliance officer. To grow your business, help you provide for your current situation and fund retirement.

I am a Certified Public Accountant practicing in Chattanooga, Tennessee. For the past 35 years I have served individuals and small businesses throughout the southeast. I am a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and have worked with two regional CPA firms and a family of transportation companies providing services nationally. I am a member of the American Institute, Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants, National Society of Accountants, National Association of Tax Professionals, Home Business Tax Professionals and Better Business Bureau.

My wife and I have been married for twenty-nine years. She is an audiologist in her own private practice, Digital Hearing Services. We enjoy family time together playing music and golf when time allows.

Let Us Help:

Dear Friend,

I have a feeling I know why you’re reading this right now.

You need more time in your day. Running a business is extremely demanding, and there just isn’t enough time in the day to keep all the plates from spinning out of control. And what you need most right now is more proactive help with your business finances and tax strategy. As soon as possible. In fact, yesterday would have been ideal. Am I close?

We get it. We’ve worked with plenty of businesses who have to cobble together 9 different software programs to keep everything straight, or who just wash their hands of it all and put everything on the credit card … and then try to clean up every year after the fact. And they know that this is no way to properly monitor profit margins, cash controls, account management, tax strategy and all of the myriad components of an effective financial system for a business.

Perhaps this is your story too. Or perhaps you’ve reached a stage of development in your business that you want to pass the baton of accounting to another expert team so your expert team can focus on what they do best: making sales and taking care of customers.

Or are you just starting your business and want to start things off on the right foot?

Whatever the reason, we want you to know that our team has been diligently and effectively taking care of the accounting needs of countless organizations in a wide variety of industries—discreetly and expertly handling the ongoing financial management of tax burdens, payroll, bookkeeping, and other comprehensive accounting services while providing expertise in business planning, coaching, and strategic consulting that many businesses need.

Because here’s a certain truth as it relates to taxes and your business: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your business’ hard-earned money in their accounts. And yes, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular business owners, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to hand more dollars over to the government than they require, just because you don’t know their rules as well as they do. You don’t have to live in a constant state of anxiety over the state of your books, feeling guilty about the time you should be devoting to keeping your business profitable.

In fact, to help you find answers to your questions, I’ve compiled some resources in the last couple of years, for business people like you, in response to the specific tax and accounting questions I’ve received from my clients.

Customer Stories

Linda S.

Tommy Taylor is the best CPA in Chattanooga. He is professional and very trustworthy. He handles multiple business accounts and personal accounts for my husband and I with great skill, accuracy and integrity. He is always available to assist with any problems that involve business taxes, personal taxes, payroll and bookkeeping. I highly recommend his services.

Daniel L. 

Over the years I have had to use several accountants for my corp filings. I have had some really bad experiences that left my feeling like there was no one who could handle the returns. After a few short minutes speaking with Tommy I found the accountant I am willing to recommend to any one. He is professional and precise. Highly recommend Tommy.

Bryan Stotz

I was very impressed and pleased with the process of filing my taxes last season with Tommy. He is extremely knowledgable and very thorough when it comes to taxes. He was willing to work with me and my needs and it took a lot of stress off of me during that time of year and I was very grateful for that. I highly recommend him!
