Katherine A. Smith, Accountant, has been a professional tax preparer and accountant for small businesses in Lincoln and St. Charles Counties for nearly thirty years. For the first seven years of the company’s history, Katherine learned accounting on the job and took side jobs to gain more experience. With two children and a third on the way, Katherine managed to sustain her business, supported her husband’s business, and went back to college to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
In 1999, after six years of intense study and creative family logistics, Katherine earned her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Missouri Baptist University, graduating Summa Cum Laude and voted by the MBU Business Department Faculty as the Outstanding Accounting Student of the Year. She continued to work and grow her business with her newly earned credentials, gaining more experience with various types of small businesses in the Lincoln and St. Charles County areas. In 2012, Katherine earned an IRS designation as Enrolled Agent, allowing her to directly represent small business claims to the IRS without the need for outside legal or CPA consultation.
