Staff Profiles

HILDA ANTONIA (TONI) CRUZ, PRESIDENT AND CFO

In her own words…

I have owned and operated an Accounting and Tax Practice firm established in the State of Florida from 1994 through 2021.

In 2018, I started a tax resolution practice, headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, following my introduction to Mr. Michael Rozbruch’ s (a CPA and Certified Tax Resolution Specialist), Tax and Business Solutions Academy. Between my work experience along with his training program, I chose to commit my practice primarily to helping clients resolve issues with tax problems arising from non-compliance with the IRS and State agencies tax filings and payments. A service, I had been providing on a per need basis, throughout my CPA practice for over 20 years. I have been successful in resolving my client’s tax problems as they arose, and it was a gratifying service. After completing the training, I recognized the benefits to be had for both my practice as well as for prospective clients in businesses, as well as individuals experiencing issues with taxing authorities. I was inspired to create The Strategic Tax & Business Solutions, LLC (aka STBS) entity.

To expand on my professional background, I am a Certified Public Accountant in the States of Florida (1995) and New York (since 1985; presently pending registration renewal). I began my career in accounting right after High School graduation as a Payroll Clerk (eventually promoted to Assistant Payroll Dept. Supervisor). I held positions as a full-time, Full-Charge, Bookkeeper while attending college at night carrying a full credit load per semester. I graduated as a Bachelor of Science Major in Accounting. Following my graduation, I became employed in Certified Public Accounting firms where I obtained auditing experience. I followed the public accounting career by becoming a Bank Field Examiner (Officer’s positions Auditing the Commercial Bank’s Customers with outstanding collateralized loans, as well as prospective customers seeking those types of financial loans).

In summary, I have over 50 years’ experience in the field of Accounting, Auditing, and Taxation.

I am confident that I will provide existing and prospective business owners and individuals with expert advice and guidance with their tax resolutions and related issues. However, I am unable to guarantee what the results of our efforts will be as the Taxing Agencies are solely responsible for determining those results. Nevertheless, I will use my expertise to provide all clients with the best outcome possible within the law.

Looking forward to meeting with you.
