Your Goals. Our Vision. Working TOGETHER.


Volatile markets. New tax laws. Retirement savings and rollover options. Term insurance or whole life? How can I better manage my spending habits? Teaming up with an experienced financial professional to help you make sense of it all may be the smartest decision you'll ever make.

Some jobs are too important and too complicated to handle all by yourself -- would you put a new roof on your house, rebuild your car's engine, buy or sell a home, or remodel your kitchen without help from a professional? Planning for the financial security of you and your loved ones is an important job too, and can benefit from the assistance of a professional. Today’s tax laws are so complex that filing even a relatively simple tax return can be confusing. That’s why millions of taxpayers utilize tax professionals to prepare and electronically file their tax returns. Nationally, over 75% of taxpayers believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer.

Our goal at Austin Financial Strategies, is to work collaboratively with you to develop a gameplan that may assist you in your ability to address important financial decisions that you're faced with. We’ll address your concerns and answer all of your questions with professional, fast, and friendly service – the way it’s meant to be! We make customer service our top priority, so when you’re looking for a tax preparer or financial services professional, Austin Financial Strategies is your best choice.

In addition to tax related matters, if you have questions about retirement rollover or savings options*, understanding how different types of life insurance work, how to run your small business more efficiently and track your cash flow, or how to take advantage of tax deductions and credits that you're entitled to, we're here to help because while income taxes are not the only financial concern you have, they certainly impact every other aspect of your financial life.
