The Watson CPA Group provides nationwide accounting and tax preparation service from our offices in Colorado Springs. By utilizing a secure Client Portal to exchange your financial information, tax documents and tax returns, we can save you valuable time and resources. Scan, fax or mail all in your PJs on a lazy morning! Appointments are nice, but are certainly not required.
We are not just tax preparers or number crunchers- we are tax consultants, and our firm will take you through the cycles of your personal and business lives. Many accountants are only compliance oriented- and while IRS compliance is critical, being proactive is equally important.
And, we are a resource that is always available throughout the year. Have a question? Need advice? Received a notice from the IRS just before Happy Hour on a Friday? You can contact us anytime, day or night.
Moreover, our goal is to always prepare a comprehensive and accurate tax return but equally important is your understanding of how a tax return “works”- to the extent necessary, we want you to be comfortable with your tax consequences so together we can successfully plan for your future.
Tina Watson, CPA, MBA
Tina has been preparing tax returns and performing accounting services since 1997 as a Certified Public Accountant. She recently graduated from Colorado State University with a Master’s in Business Administration. Tina has extensive experience with corporate tax issues and bookkeeping, and enjoys making the pieces of the puzzle come together (really!). She also specializes in ex-pats (ex-patriates) and the tricky qualification for foreign earned income exclusion.
Having worked for defense contractors in the past, Tina also assists in governmental compliance including indirect rate calculations, DCAA audit support and time accounting.
Jason Watson, EA, MBA
Jason teamed up with his wife Tina in 2006 to provide tax and business consultation, as well as tax preparation. In 2012, Jason completed the three-part IRS test to become an Enrolled Agent. This allows him to prepare and sign tax returns, and represent clients for any tax related issue with the IRS and Tax Court. Much like a CPA, an Enrolled Agent is required to take recurring professional education courses.
He is also a Training Captain for SkyWest Airlines and is the liaison for pilots and flight attendants who require unique tax preparation. Jason has a Master’s in Business Administration from UW-Madison and has owned rental properties since 1996- he can offer down to earth advice on small businesses and rental property owners.
The Watson CPA Group is grateful for the assistance and support of our very capable staff including Angie, Lana, Joanna and Nancy. This group helps Tina and Jason focus on what is important- timely and accurate tax consultation and preparation for our clients. Doing what we do truly is a group effort.
