HILDA ANTONIA (TONI) CRUZ, PRESIDENT, AND CFO
In her own words…
In 2018, I established a tax resolution business, headquartered in Brooklyn, NY. I chose to commit my business primarily to helping individuals and small businesses resolve with tax problems and issues from the IRS and State agencies. A service, I had been providing on a per need basis, throughout my CPA practice for over 25 years. I have been successful in resolving my clients’ tax problems as they arose, and it was a gratifying service. To augment my expertise, I enrolled in a Tax and Business Solutions Academy founded by a CPA and Certified Tax Resolution professional to refresh and update my knowledge base. After completing the training, I recognized the benefits to be had for both my prospective small businesses as well as individuals experiencing issues with taxing authorities.
Now, a word about me and my professional background, I am a Certified Public Accountant in the States of New York (since 1985) and Florida (since 1995). I began my career in the accounting field right after High School graduation; my first job was as a Payroll Clerk (then promoted to Assistant Payroll Dept. Supervisor). Subsequently, I held positions as a full-Charge Bookkeeper while attending college at night carrying a full-time credit load per semester. I graduated as a Bachelor of Science Major in Accounting, from the Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. Following my college graduation, I became employed in Certified Public Accounting firms where I obtained auditing experience. Later, I pursued a career as a Bank Field Examiner/Auditor.
Additionally, I owned and operated an Accounting and Tax Practice CPA firm established in the State of Florida from 1994 through 2021; thereafter, I have focused my time and services to the STBS-LLC business. In summary, I have over 50 years’ experience in the fields 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 respect to their tax resolutions and related issues.
I look forward to meeting and working with you.
