Why did you start your business?
“I started Tax Tiger because I worked previously for a huge, mega tax law firm that specialized in Tax Resolution and was not giving the clients proper service for their money. After working there for 4 years and learning the business, the work environment became so hostile that I left there. I felt the Lord leading me to start my own business to do it the “right way.” My motto is “making a difference in people’s lives” and money is not my priority. Helping people out from under the stress and fear of the IRS is my primary objective. I started on a thin dime and a prayer and because my faith and trust in God is so strong, I knew He would carry me through. Today, 10 years later, I have clients in almost all 50 states and 5 franchises across the country and we have had an A+ BBB rating for years. God has blessed in a mighty way because I advertise we are a faith-based business on our website and our ads and give Him all the honor and glory.”
What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?
“The major scripture I draw from is Jeremiah 29:11 which reads: ‘For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you; plans to give you hope and a future.’ This scripture speaks to my heart and lets me know daily that God has great plans in store for my business to prosper and I trust in His word. He has never failed me.
Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?
“On Aug. 20, 2013, I released ‘Is God’s Hand on Your Business?’ which lists 15 essential principles of success and prosperity. My main piece of advice is to earnestly seek His will and stay as close to the center of His will as you possibly can, because in that place will you experience peace, and prosperity. But throughout the years I have learned many principles from His word that has helped keep His hand of favor over my business.”
Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?
“We routinely settle IRS liability of many thousands of dollars for as little as $20. They are all listed on my website TaxTiger.com but when the IRS debt falls off their shoulders they call in tears saying, ‘Thank God for you, Kathy’.”
