Cathy Laumer, EA
In September of 1996, I attended a Basic Tax Prep class along with a friend of mine. We learned how to prepare tax returns by hand; including all worksheets and schedules.
I was offered employment with H&R Block for the 1996 tax season, and every tax season thereafter. For 13 years I worked days at a retail lumber yard and evenings & weekends during the tax season at H&R Block. I enjoyed the tax preparation and client interaction during the tax season and missed it during the off season.
I became an enrolled agent in October of 2008.
In June 2009, after 10 years of working together at H&R Block, Karen Lavsa and I decided to merge our extensive tax knowledge with our bookkeeping skills and we opened L & L Tax and Business Services, a tax preparation and bookkeeping office.
In August of 2014 I completed the three-level program in Tax Representation and Practice before the Internal Revenue Service and earned the designation Fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute.
