Meet Our Team
Don Robinson Hollingsworth
Don Robinson Hollingsworth,
I hold a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license in NYS along with a Master’s degree in Taxation from the University of Texas at Austin. I worked with Ernst & Young (E&Y) Accounting firm in the Dallas, Washington, D.C. and New York City offices 4+ years to complete the work requirements to obtain my CPA license; in addition to gaining invaluable work experience in the areas of audit and complicated tax issues. I left E&Y to pursue an Acting Career while starting my solo tax practice that began by catering to the Creative Community in the NYC area. As a CPA who has chosen to specialize my training through a master’s degree in taxation, with international Accounting firm experience and with the rigorous continuing education requirements required to maintain my CPA license, I feel that I am uniquely qualified for all my client’s needs for tax filings and planning.

Many of our qualified Seasonal Tax Preparers are in school studying for their CPA and train with Alan Chan, CPA during our off season to prepare for the upcoming season.
Some Tax returns are completed by our Seasonal Tax Preparers, then checked by Alan, then checked again by Don before it's released to you. Rest assured, your Tax returns are in good hands!
Dan lives in Kenya and is excellent with our customer service support. Although many clients request Dan call them, it is best to communicate via email since he is on an entirely different time-zone.

He is currently training with Alan Chan, CPA to become a one of our Tax Preparers.
