Michelle Fritz, Tax Preparer

Michelle works directly with clients on their taxes as well as behind the scenes organizing data for Yahr Income Tax.  She enjoys working with numbers and helping clients see how their businesses are performing. By using these tools, she helps client’s reach their goals and continues to grow her own knowledge in tax preparation.
