With tax season deadlines looming in less than two months, SVS Tax & Bookkeeping is in overdrive to take care of its clients. The business, which is located at 1941 Mitchell Road, Suite A (south of Fowler Road), has the distinction of being named by Courier readers as the best in the category of CPA/Tax Service Preparation.

"We take pride in being personable, reliable and affordable," said Sherry Tanis, one of the owners of the firm.

SVS primarily provides personal income tax preparation services to families in the area who need help wading through complex tax laws. Causing particular problems this year for those filing is Congress' delay on budget matters and the fiscal cliff. Tax laws remain incredibly cumbersome and staying on top of changes requires constant education for the crew at SVS, said Tanis.

SVS is the result of three women striking out on their own from a corporate environment to start their own Ceres business in 2005. The name of the company was derived by the first letters of the first names of tax advisers Sherry Tanis, Virginia Lopez and Susan Ahart. Cammie Melton, a Hughson High School graduate with nine years' experience in taxes, was later added to the staff.
Tanis has 19 years' experience, Lopez has 14 years and Ahart has 16 years.

All four women work extraordinarily long hours during tax season but are able to slow down the pace the rest of the year to concentrate on light bookkeeping duties for small businesses and farms.

SVS is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays during tax season; and limited hours during the off season.

The staff may be contacted at 538-8128.
