Talk about attention to detail. Betty Battaglini views tax returns like a huge puzzle, and she is always searching for the exact piece to make the picture complete. She strives to customize the experience to fit specific needs, and she has real-life experience that strengthens her advice and guidance. For instance, Betty uses the knowledge she gained caring for her elderly mother to assist senior citizens with their medical care tax deductions, which frequently can include expenses spent on caregivers, facilities, personal care, and travel arrangements.
After graduating from the University of Houston, the native Texan started her career in financial reporting for large companies on the stock exchanges. But she found herself drawn to the tax side of the industry. Today, she brings experience from both sides to serve clients at Griffing & Company, P.C. Over the past 30 years, the CPA has been responsible for financial statements and analysis, annual reports, debt compliance and required reporting to the Securities and Exchange Commission in various industries including retail, oil and gas, coal mining and service organizations. Her tax experience includes preparation of individual, business, estates, and non-profit tax returns, payroll taxes, and sales and use tax.
Betty prides herself on her personal touch and ability to listen. She is quick to compliment the “true team spirit” found in the office, and credits good management, warm camaraderie and wonderful clients for the reasons she stays.
