Our Company

In 1938, M. Stanley Metz founded our company based on the novel idea that the accountant should go to the client. eighty years later we are still making “house calls”.

Old fashioned, perhaps, but we still believe that this is the best way to conduct our business and help you to build yours. We offer solid “no frills” accounting and tax consulting services to you in your home or business for a reasonable fee. This approach, when coupled with our extensive experience and expertise, uniquely qualifies us to help you do what you do best—grow your business.

We also believe that our professional and diverse staff of accountants, tax preparers, write-up and payroll personnel plays an integral part in our formula for success. M. Stanley Metz & Co., Inc. invites you to experience the difference that an “old fashioned” idea can make!

A man may die, nations may rise and fall,
but an idea lives on.

– John F. Kennedy (1917–1963) –

Tax Planning & Preparation

Tax planning and preparation are requirements for success. Whether you are an individual, a corporation, LLC, or a partnership, our professionals can develop tax strategies that take advantage of the latest tax laws and legislation.

IRS Representation

eighty years of experience guarantee a high level of competence and confidence as we represent our clients before both federal and state tax agencies. That competence and confidence is the result of our status as enrolled agents. An Enrolled Agent (EA) is an individual who has demonstrated technical competence in the field of taxation. Enrolled Agents, or EAs, can represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service. “Enrolled” means EAs are licensed by the federal government. “Agent” means EAs are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at the Internal Revenue Service. Only EAs, attorneys and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS. Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the Internal Revenue Service their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all EAs specialize in taxation. EAs are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the United States government. (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states.)

Payroll Services

We offer a completely computerized payroll service that is cost effective and easily tailored to your needs. We can generate your payroll checks, provide direct deposit and fulfill all federal and state reporting requirements.

Sales Tax Services

Many of our clients collect and submit sales taxes in several states. We can assist your company in the preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.

Pension & Profit Sharing Plans

Qualified retirement plans can be a useful tool providing significant tax advantages for businesses and self-employed individuals. Our Professionals can assist you in evaluating the type of pension plan that will best serve the retirement needs of you and your employees.

Beware of small expenses;
