We are Child Care Tax Specialists!  Pat Michael understands tax preparation and financial services for child care providers probably better than any other tax preparer you’ve ever met. His wife provided in-home child care for more than 25 years so he knows from the inside exactly what goes into your business plus every deduction you are eligible for.  And he keeps updated on the latest tax developments so YOU benefit.  Word of mouth about Pat’s services has spread far & wide so that we now have many clients way outside our local area and growing numbers of clients in other states too!  We know you rely on us as your Child Care Tax Specialists, and we value your Trust! 

Pat shares his expertise!  For more than 18 years, as a service to the community, Pat has provided his knowledge and ability with child care providers in his seminars on taxes, record-keeping, audits, general tax law, and best practices through the YMCA Child Resource Services in San Diego county.  As part of their licensing & certification training of child care providers, the CRS considers Pat their subject-matter expert in the field of child care tax preparation, record-keeping, audits and general tax law.

Below is our 2017/2018 YMCA season calendar!  We invite you to join us and get a wealth of information at one of our interactive YMCA childcare workshops! ….find out below how you could be a WINNER!
