Real Stories, Real Entrepreneurs

​I never thought I’d say this but I’m actually not dreading tax time anymore thanks to Natalie, Derek and Shared Economy Tax. I have been in business for over 4 years and have used 2 other tax professionals before calling them, and I’m so glad I did. As a creative entrepreneur and as someone with several completely different sources of income, it was so worthwhile to have their help in both getting my books organized and filing the various forms for two LLCs, a W-2 and a sole proprietorship. I love that they use current technology to enable working remotely, opposed to going into someone’s office to talk over everything. I was able to call -and- text Natalie with tax questions (and I have a lot of them). Even during their busy season, Natalie always made time for me and was responsive, as well as very personable. Their pricing is upfront and fair, and we got everything submitted on time. I highly recommend the services of Shared Economy Tax, they were worth every penny.

I found Shared Economy via a search looking for a CPA specializing in Airbnb. They took my chaotic year of new home, new state, new Airbnb and made it largely effortless. I look forward to working with them again next year.

Holly - Airbnb Host

Riverdale Park, MD

When tax season came around after my first year of freelancing, I was completely lost. I knew that if I tried to muddle through on my own, I risked overpayment of my taxes or, even worse, penalties from the IRS. Fortunately, I heard of an online seminar featuring Derek Davis. His knowledge and commitment to helping freelancers with their accounting needs led me to choose Shared Economy Tax as my tax preparer.
It was an excellent choice. Everyone at Shared Economy was polite, efficient, and extremely helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience, and I’m truly happy that I’ve found experts for all my accounting needs.

Shared Economy Tax is super easy to work with. I used to have to spend hours filling out a packet for my previous Tax, then mailing it off and going to an in-person meeting. Everything with SET is online, fast communication and they got me a nice return. Highly recommend!
