Passion for numbers equals savings for you
April Mertens owns and operates April’s Tax Service in St. Charles.

Picture it. A small snowball rolling down a hill is gaining size and momentum as it races onward. Just like the snowball, the career of April Mertens has grown rapidly since her first time preparing taxes.

 “My first accounting class in college was awesome!” April said. A tax class soon followed, which led to a call from her uncle to help with his tax preparation. Now she owns and operates her own business, April’s Tax Service in St. Charles.

Since 1998, April has been doing tax returns for individuals and businesses. She incorporated April’s Tax Service in 2007 and has been rolling along ever since.

April’s passion has empowered her to become an authorized IRS e-file provider and a registered tax return preparer for the IRS.

In addition to taxes, April’s Tax Service keeps busy year-round by providing other valuable services. She is very knowledgeable on the trucking industry and can assist owner/operators with record keeping. She added, “I can also handle bookkeeping services for small businesses who can’t afford a full-time person.”
