Mike Mason has 35 years of experience in preparing income tax returns and is a licensed Registered Tax Return Preparer by the IRS. Upon graduating from Georgia State University’s College of Business Administration in 1978, he worked as a staff accountant in an accounting firm in Conyers, Georgia. A few years later, he setup his own public accounting firm, working out of his home. Mike not only welcomed clients into his home, but he would also visit their homes or businesses to gather and prepare returns. This personal touch resonated with customers, and has become a signature of Mason’s Business Services as it continues to grow. Today, Mike and his staff encourage clients to contact them anytime during the year with questions, rather than worry about a financial situation or make an uninformed decision. Outside of the busy tax season, most clients feel so comfortable with the staff that they know they can just stop by any time, without needing to make an appointment. Mike and his staff pride themselves on delivering personal service and a professional finished product at a price that cannot be matched by the big name firms.
