Southwestern Tax Service

About Us

We are a small firm of tax professionals specializing in Agriculture and Small Business. Based in St. Thomas, Ontario, we have been helping our clients minimize their taxes and meet their filing obligations since 1982.

We believe that taxes don’t have to be frightening – our friendly, knowledgeable staff is here to assist you with any tax-related problems you might have. We can help decipher any confusing letters you may receive from the government and explain in plain language how any changes to the Income Tax Act affect you.

We believe in helping our clients at every step of the process – from payroll to bookkeeping, from GST/HST to information returns, from tax planning to tax returns, we’re always happy to answer your questions. We understand that our success is dependent on your success.

We believe that communication is important – we will review your tax return with you and answer any questions you may have before it is filed with the government. If you have a question after your return is filed, or you just want to know about the possible tax implications of a transaction, we’re here year-round to help.

We believe that different can be good – we understand that one system won’t work for every client and we tailor our approach to your management style, whether you keep your records on computer, on paper or in a shoebox. Whatever you have, we can deal with it.

We believe that continuity and trust are the best basis for any relationship – we don’t hire salespeople and we don’t hire data collectors. Our industry-educated professionals are trained to answer your tax questions and look at your unique situation to develop a tax solution that works for you. We try to keep the same professional matched to your account each year to eliminate omissions and to spot any discrepancies.

We believe in standing behind our work – if you receive a reassessment from the government that you disagree with, we will work on your behalf to make it right. If your file is ever selected for review or audit, we will represent you through the entire process.

We believe we can help – if you’re looking for a new way to handle your taxes, give us a call or send us an email. We’d be happy to discuss your situation with you.
