Business: Patricia Lepore CB, EA
My husband, Jeff and I moved to Florida in 2000 from New Jersey and settled in the South Marion Belleview area. Shortly after, my three grown children followed and, also live in Florida with my four grandchildren.
After working for HACV and trucking transportation companies as their accountants, I decided to open my own accounting and tax business. My mission is to help small businesses by handling the financial portion of their business. I handle all bookkeeping, payroll, sales taxes and federal tax returns. I work with the client to make their business financials as easy as possible, leaving the client the time to do what they do best. I also handle tax returns for individuals.
I have more than 30 years of accounting and tax experience. I am also an EA (enrolled agent). As an enrolled agent I have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS by having passed a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns. With the status of enrolled agent, the highest credentials the IRS awards, comes the responsibility of maintaining continuing education courses in law and ethical standards.
