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 work with 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 situations are carefully considered.
All tax preparers at ATP have earned their Enrolled Agent credentials from the IRS which further emphasizes their committment to the profession. Maintaining this credential requires many hours of continuing education each year. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
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 other countries as well.
