Hello and thanks for visiting EMK Tax & Accounting, LLC! My name is Erica and I am here to help you. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Masters Degree in Accounting in 2012. I am a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor and I am presently studying to take the Enrolled Agent Exam. I have been working in the Accounting/Tax business since 1999 and I have loved every minute of it! I decided recently to go out on the ledge and start up my own business so that I can provide accounting and tax services to people just like you. Perhaps you own your own small business and need someone to give you a helping hand with your bookkeeping. Or maybe you haven't filed your taxes in a few years... Not a problem! That is what I am here for. I work out of my home office and do everything myself. This means little to no overhead and better rates for my clients. I work quickly and efficiently and I can assure you that you will be pleased with my work.
My company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance and I am committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.
I would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
What My Clients Have To Say...
"I was very skeptical about hiring a new person to do my taxes when I moved to Arizona after being in Utah so long. Turns out I had no worries. Erica was so prompt, accessible whenever I had a question & I always had a fast response as well. I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable person when it came to my small home based business. All small business owners really do want to save time and money and Erica does just that for her clients. I would be so confident referring her to my friends, family, and business colleagues anytime. Knowing what you can and cannot do on your taxes is very important and Erica made me smell like flowers in the end."

"I found Erica to be knowledgeable, quick and professional. She is also a good communicator and took the time to understand my needs. I will definitely use her tax services again next year!"
"I had a huge IRS debt haunting me for over 3 years, and as it turned out I had been doing my taxes wrong. I figured since I had been using turbotax that it would automatically make sure I got all possible deductions but now I know that it just doesn't work that way! Erica fixed all of my mistakes and also found alot more legal deductions I didn't know about. Not only is all of that off my shoulders but I'm actually getting a big refund instead! I jokingly called her "Santa" a few times because she made it feel like Christmas time for me! Erica's customer service and communication skills are fantastic and that was an unexpected bonus. Every time I contacted her with a question she would reply almost instantly and that was just awesome! I've already recommended Erica to all of my closest friends and customers. Thanks again and I CAN'T WAIT for next year!!! LOL"
"For my husband and I, it was our first year filing taxes as a business. We were very skeptical about trusting someone with our finances, but knew that we needed expert help as we were both very unfamiliar with the process. When we found Erica, we found that she was very knowledgeable, quick, and patient! She answered so many questions for us, and never failed to be professional and pleasant! Her prices are very affordable, and her skills and expertise are worth every penny! My husband and I would recommend Erica to anyone and everyone who needs a professional accountant. We know we won’t go to anyone else!"
"As a small business owner, I had been looking for an accountant that understood my needs and challenges. I wanted someone who was more personal and not just an electronic correspondence. I found that and much more in Erica. She went above and beyond in working my business. Anytime I ever have a question, she is quick to reply with assistance. My only regret is that I did not discover Erica years ago. She is a true professional and comes with the highest of recommendations."

"For the tax year of 2009 I was looking for a new tax person, found an introductory coupon from Erica with EMK Tax & Accounting and gave her a call. She was prompt, efficient and very professional, returning my completed forms in 2 days. For the 2010 tax year , I also had Erica complete my tax returns, and am still satisfied with her competency, accuracy, quickness and professionalism. I am self employed, itemize my deductions and had a short sale to contend with this tax year. And yes I choose to continue to call on the services of Erica with EMK Tax & Accounting for the foreseeable future."

"This will be our second year with EMK Tax & Accounting. We have had several accountants over the 17 years that we have been in business. Erica Kachlic has been very helpful & knowledgeable from the beginning. She is always available by phone or email when we have questions & really listens to our concerns or questions. Recently we asked her for help with a project we are doing for the business & Erica went above & beyond in providing us the tax help we needed. We highly recommend her to any new or established business that is looking for an accountant. Erica understands that businesses are struggling in our present uncertain economy & is willing to make her services affordable to small as well as large businesses. It is very refreshing to know that we are with an accountant that knows who we are & that we are not just another file on a desk at a large tax firm!"
"We found Erica over a year ago and could not be happier! She goes out of her way for us and does a wonderful job. We do not plan on going anywhere else even though she is close to 50 miles away. Thanks Erica!!!"

“When I started my new job I had no experience with the accounting system that our agency uses. Erica came over the first week to get me started. She is always available to answer my questions and help me through the next thing that ‘I can’t figure out.’ We recommend Erica for her dedication to our work, her diligence with our books and her commitment to customer service.”
Kris Jacober, Executive Director, Arizona Friends of Foster Children Foundation www.affcf.org
"Dear Ms. Kachlic,
Thank you for helping me with filing the complicated federal and state tax returns for my elderly father residing with us. I had never done this before. The returns were. promptly filled out and submitted. It was reassuring to me that all paperwork was accepted and no problems encountered with either the federal or state IRS offices."

“EMK Tax and Accounting has been a vital part of our $2M senior-living operations for a year now. EMK started with servicing our payroll functions and because they did such a great job (and at a reasonable cost), they now do our payables and billing as well. Erica Kachlic has provided wonderful customer service and in a cheerful and timely manner. I cannot think of one hiccup that we have had since utilizing EMK. We used to use ADP Total Source….what a nightmare…just obtaining an answer to a question would take weeks and fixing a problem would take months. We are looking forward to the day when Erica and EMK become a full-service CPA firm to do all of our accounting as well!”
