Dennis Michalak began preparing taxes in 1983, purchasing his first franchise and following a few years later with another. In 1987, he became licensed with Avantax. After seeing many of his tax clients returning to him year after year with the same financial worries, he realized that the value he could provide as a tax and financial advisor was an important part of providing excellent customer service. He's been serving clients ever since, and has been one of Avantax's top advisors for almost two decades. Dennis is also an Enrolled Agent with the IRS, allowing him to represent clients before tax courts.
