I have some exciting news to share! While I’m not retiring, I have sold Janssen & Igar, CPAs, PA to Samantha (Sam) Tallyn, CPA! I will be working on taxes for some time but since I’m turning 70 this year, I have decided it’s time to reduce my hours in the office. This frees me up to spend more time in the role I so enjoy—that of Grandmother!
You may have come in contact with Sam already as she has been with Janssen & Igar for a while. A Pensacola native, she has been working with small businesses in the financial and public accounting field since 2004. Sam has worked for a large local CPA firm and also had her own company. She is very well-versed in tax preparation and QuickBooks and brings to J&I a wealth of understanding of tax law and international taxes.
More good news is that all other team members will remain on staff and the firm is staying in the same location. At J&I our policy has always been that one person prepares and one person reviews your tax returns. Even if you call and your tax preparer is unavailable, there is a professional here that is familiar with your situation:
Gary Fagg, a native of Indiana, became a CPA in 1991 and later a QuickBooks ProAdvisor in 1999. His experience in personal taxes and small business accounting is invaluable to our clients. Gary is knowledgeable in all aspects of taxes. He has been with J&I for more than 11 years.
Mindy Snyder became a CPA in 2011 while working for J&I. Previously she had earned a B.S. in mathematics and her accounting degree. Mindy has several years of QuickBooks experience, with an emphasis in personal taxes and handling of payroll issues.
Hillary Carpenter began as a part-time backup support person with J&I during the 2017 tax season. Now her permanent roles include tax preparation, bookkeeping, and payroll. She became an Enrolled Agent in 2019 and a Certified Payroll Professional in 2022.
Feel free to come in and meet Sam, Gary, Mindy, or Hillary anytime. Just give us a call in advance to schedule a time!
Finally, do not hesitate to call or email me personally if you ever have questions.
Helen W. Igar, CPA
