Business Since 1987
Tax Service Plus was purchased by Louis Roner in 1996. Over the 20 years of his ownership, his wife, step-daughter, and granddaughter worked for the business. In 2015, Louis’s granddaughter, Crystal Hawley took over the daily operations and purchased Tax Service Plus in 2016. Though he is not the boss anymore, Louis continues to work for Tax Service Plus as a valuable team member.
Since stepping into ownership of the family business, Crystal has worked hard to expand the business through her exceptional tax work and accommodating customer service. She and her team create a relaxed atmosphere and personal approach to each client and their needs, making them feel valued, appreciated and confident in Tax Service Plus.
Meet Our Team
Crystal H has been preparing tax returns for Tax Service Plus since 2000. In 2015, to better serve her clients she chooses to expand her licenses by completing her Federal exams to become an Enrolled Agent as well as an additional state exam to be a Licensed Tax Consultant. Oftentimes you will find Crystal with her nose in a book or on the computer researching to find a loophole for her clients. She’s best known around the office for her play on words. She states “my life is a musical” as she bobs her head along to her most recent concoction of lyrics.
Louis has been a licensed Tax Consultant since 1991. In 2006 he completed his Federal exams to become an Enrolled Agent. Although he has handed down the reigns he continues to work at Tax Service Plus and provide that much-needed level of mischief. Louie is a lifelong resident of Cottage Grove and he enjoys seeing his long-time clients as well as meeting new ones.
