Putting together right team is essential to your ongoing business success and growth. We have all the key players to help you get to the next level. Our team includes…

Dusty H. Fox Peterson is a fantastic team to work with! I’ve known them to be a part of the community for a long time but this was my first experience doing business with them. Tyson Haws was able to help me get my business taxes filed in a very short period of time and make the deadline. I was so impressed, that I’ll be using them to file my personal returns going forward. People joke that I’m difficult to please, but they provided an experience that left me extremely happy. Taxes aren’t as painful as I have known them to be. I’ll be telling all my friends about Fox Peterson.

Happy Clients

Holly K. I haven’t done taxes in years. I had no clue as to how to enter the boxes online either. So, being newly divorced and now a working mom, my mother and father in law recommended Clark Fox. I had a truly enlightening experience with him today. He made me feel so comfortable as we went through my paperwork. He didn’t rush me through. He took every piece of paperwork and explained everything. I can read people well. Clark Fox isn’t just a tax guy, but also a wonderful human being. It shows. I will go to him from here on out. I will also recommend him to everyone I know. Now I’m not afraid of taxes.

Lindsey H. I have had Fox Peterson prepare my taxes for the past two years and have been completely satisfied. Tyson is the one that I worked with and he worked quickly and reviewed everything with me as he was preparing. If you are looking for quality work for your taxes then use this company!!
