Bill Porter became a tax professional in 2008 when he started his company Pride Tax Preparation in the suburbs of Minneapolis, Minnesota. After passing the "Special Enrollment Examination" with the IRS to become an Enrolled Agent, he soon realized that most tax returns of child care providers were either incorrect or missing important deductions, so he decided to specialize his business towards helping child care providers. When preparing tax returns, he focuses on ensuring everything is correct and using all allowable deductions so his clients can have the best outcome.
