helping your business succeed
Welcome! I am Kathleen Stepp, and I am the owner of Blue Palm Tax & Bookkeeping Service, LLC. I help small business owners find ways to increase their profits, optimize their cash flow, and lower their taxes.
As a small business owner myself, I understand the many hats that must be worn to keep your business going. Sometimes the bookkeeping chores get put on the back burner because we have more pressing issues to take care of right now … at least until tax time comes around 🙂
While many may find the accounting responsibilities of their business boring, or even tedious, I do not… I enjoy what I do!
I will treat your finances with white gloves, caring for them as though they are the most prized possession. I want to see your business succeed and grow. And I can provide you with the tools you need to understand where your company is financially and how to improve your numbers.
I have 20+ years of experience. I have worked in many aspects of finance including full charge bookkeeping, pricing analysis, volunteer treasurer, tax preparation, and life insurance. My experience spans several industries: antique/retail store owner, government contracting, print media, and auto salvage and repair. I understand the needs of companies that use inventory or are service-based, as well as solopreneurs and freelancers.
My training includes an Associate’s degree in Accounting. I am a Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor, and a member of NATP (National Association of Tax Preparers). I also have experience using QuickBooks Desktop, and even began my career using good ‘ole paper ledgers.
Whether your books are in pristine order, a chaotic mess, or somewhere in between. I am happy to help you with any challenge you have with your bookkeeping or tax preparation.
