Mission Statement:     

Enjoy helping small business owners navigate the tax and bookkeeping chaos, misinformation and frustrations. Believes if small-business owners get just two things right then they will be free to pursue their dreams, profits and the balanced, family-centered life they seek.

These two things are (1) Taxes and (2) Bookkeeping:

(1) Taxes are inevitable. 
You can't escape taxes. However, with the right tax advice and tax planning, you can easily tame the tax monster.

(2) Bookkeeping (Record-Keeping)
For the small-business owner, Bookkeeping is the solution and tool that tames the tax monster - when tax time comes around. Tax-Planning and Tax-Savings are lost without proper bookkeeping. Bookkeeping should be kept as simple and as uncomplicated as your small-business needs. Remember the KISS System: "Keep It Simple And Save". When your business becomes BIG enough I'll be happy to refer you to more sophisticated systems. Until then ...  just keep it simple and save.


Since 1985 Mr. Cook has worked and partnered with small-businesses and entrepreneurs as  a 
solo-practitioner, Tax and Bookkeeping practice.


Personal Statement: 
"I prefer working with individuals and small-businesses one-on-one and confidentially. A small Tax and Bookkeeping practice helping Service-Centered, Small-Businesses, Home-Based Businesses, Start-Ups, Sub-Contractors, Professionals, Entrepreneurs and Freelancers - Keep It Simple And Save.
I prefer to Keep It Simple and pass the Savings on to my clients. Life and business can easily become chaotic and difficult. Keeping your balance seems almost impossible. However, I have proved time and again that by keeping your personal and business financials simple and up to date you become free to spend your time growing your business and enjoying your life, while having the peace of mind that comes from knowing your financials are organized.

 Since we cannot legally escape taxes, our best option is to organize our business affairs to keep up with the tax laws and save every tax dollar we legally can save. In my many years of working as a Tax-Accountant, the one constant I've observed again and again is that you do not want to fall behind with or get awry with the IRS (or your State Taxes). And, the best way to do this is by having in place a simple and workable record-keeping or bookkeeping system. Your bookkeeping system should be simple enough so that it is not overwhelming, expensive or all consuming. Yet, it should be comprehensive enough to meet your small-business needs while saving you tax dollars and keeping you out of harms way with the tax authorities. Your solution is to affordable and simply partner with  a Tax and Bookkeeping Pro who can accomplish this for you. M Cook Taxes can help! Call or contact us Now!"
