Ada Tax Professionals was started in 1991 by Elke Gribskov to provide an alternative to the large impersonal tax preparation firms, grocery store tax outlets and high priced CPAs. We value our long term relationships with our many clients and welcome new clients each year. Our clients enjoy an atmosphere that is kept light with humor and friendliness and interviews are conducted in private offices.
The staff at Ada Tax Professionals works with our clients to achieve an accurate and complete return with all possible deductions and credits considered. When choosing amongst alternative tax treatment possibilities, the client’s goals and situation are carefully considered.
Our clients come from all throughout Ada County, as well as other neighboring counties such as Canyon, Gem, and Elmore. Many former Idaho residents now mail or email their information from other states including Oregon, Washington, California and further.
