Meet Our Team
EA, LTC co-owner
In 2012 after Crystal and her husband welcomed their son she decided to expand her licensures to better serve her clientele. After 3 years of intense studying and multiple exams Crystal now has the privilege of referring to herself as both an Enrolled Agent and a Licensed Tax Consultant.
When the opportunity rolled around in 2015 for Crystal to take over the daily operations she was delighted to do so and ultimately purchased the business from Louis in 2016. With such a smooth transition most clients did not notice a change in ownership as Louis remained on staff to mentor Crystal.
Life has continued to evolve for Crystal and in June of 2019 she joined forces with another well-known tax preparer Deanna Mathis.
Louie was born and raised in the Cottage Grove area. He resides in his childhood home right here in town. He worked for Bohemia Mill for several years.
In 1982 when the mill began the process of shutting down he decided to turn to a life of accounting and tax preparation. He later became a Licensed Tax Consultant in 1991 as well as an EA in 2006. In 1996 he purchased Tax Service Plus and started his new adventure of business owner.
After 20 years he decided to pass down his knowledge and clientele to his Granddaughter Crystal. Although you may only see Louie part time and find that his schedule isn’t as readily available as it once was please note that he and his expertise are still available to the staff at GAP Accounting.
Debbie is a proud puppy momma of 2 German Shephard boys that keep her very busy. When she is not busy playing fetch or taking them for a walk you might just find her behind a keyboard.
Debbie has been a licensed tax preparer since 2009. She brought her expertise of tax returns and payroll processing to our team in 2016.
Front Office Team
Dana loves to be outside. If it is sunny out you will find her by the river probably hunting for pretty rocks. She also enjoys making goodies which are fantastic.
Dana joined our team in 2017 as a part of our collation team. She has since cross trained with our front desk staff and you may just see her when you come in for you tax appointment or to pick up your completed return. Dana is most likely the one who put that beautiful binding on your return.
