Spencer Tax Service began when they stopped filing income tax returns at the windows of the Post Office. Mary’s Father, Earl Spencer, did this work for several years and seized the opportunity to open a tax practice at 560 Wooster Rd.W,. the current address of the Salvation Army. His earliest clients were B&W Workers who left the Fourth Street gate and came around the corner to our home to get their taxes done. This occurred before Mary was born. All of Mary’s childhood was spent hearing about income tax.
Mary began working with her parents after she received her teaching degree from Kent State University, located in Kent, OH. When Earl died in 1973, her mother, Florence and her did taxes together until she moved to its current location at 617 Wooster Rd W. in 1977. In 1994, an experienced accountant was added to the staff, Laura Thomas. She is both an Enrolled Agent and a CPA with an accounting degree from the University of Akron.
Spencer Tax Service has many loyal clients; some brag that it’s been 50 or more years since Earl first filed their tax returns. Spencer Tax Service helps individuals with their personal income tax returns navigate the ever-changing complicated tax system to pay the least amount of tax allowed.
They help small business owners by providing accounting and bookkeeping services, Quickbooks & Peachtree/Sage assistance, payroll preparation and related payroll taxes, and filing the business income tax returns. At Spencer Tax Service, we have a wide variety of experience with many types of businesses we work with ranging from sole proprietors, LLC’s, corporations, partnerships and non-profit entities.
In December 2014, the ownership of Mary Timura’s practice, Spencer Tax Service, was transferred to Laura Thomas, EA, CPA who has worked here for over 20 years. Mary will be around the next several years to aid in transition. There should be no disruption in service or quality of care with this ownership change.
