He manages the accounting, payroll and tax departments as well as being responsible for marketing and all new client sales and development. Scott has his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Edison State College and his Masters in Taxation from Taft University. Scott is an Enrolled Agent, a license granted by the Department of the Treasury specifically the Internal Revenue Service which allows him to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service.
