Tax Specialists in
Chico, CA

Padgett Business Services® doesn’t take an approach that merely requires an annual visit for tax preparation. We’re in it with you for the long term, and that demands an intimate relationship – one in which we know your business as well as you do.

We account for the details of your day-to-day operation – through tax preparation, government compliance, payroll preparation, financial statements and more. But for meeting your long-term goals, our strategic consulting services includes offering tax advice, conserving finances, completing critical work on time and budget, and beyond. We also have deep experience serving startups, computer consultants, nail salons and more.

As an Enrolled agent, John is the primary tax preparer here and as such is highly trained and educated in everything tax! Outside of the office John enjoys all things outdoors.
