Mayhew's Tax Service merges with Advantage Tax Group

Advantage Tax Group LLC, a full service tax and accounting firm headquartered in Dover, has agreed to assume the operations of Mayhew Tax Service in Newcomerstown beginning this month.

Advantage Tax Group began as a single location in Bolivar on Jan. 1, 2003. Today, Advantage has seven locations providing tax, accounting, payroll and wealth management services throughout Tuscarawas, Holmes, Stark and Wayne counties. The company was founded by Certified Public Accountants who saw a large and growing segment of the population being abandoned by traditional CPA firms.

According to Mick, Mary and Mike Mayhew, "After years of serving our client's tax needs, we are pleased to be turning over the office to Advantage Tax Group. We would like to thank everyone for their loyal patronage. So many of our clients are like family to us. It has truly been our pleasure to serve our community for so many years. We are confident that our clients will continue to receive excellent, personalized service from Advantage Tax. They are looking forward to working with our clients and plan to remain in our existing office with the same phone number."

"We are grateful to have been given the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Mayhew family," said Randy Longacher, a CPA and founding partner of Advantage Tax Group. "We know we have big shoes to fill and we look forward to working with everyone in the community and with all the previous Mayhew Tax Service clients. With the income tax season under way, we are very busy preparing the office to meet everyone's tax needs. We are excited about adding some new features to the already outstanding service the Mayhew clients are accustomed to. For example, we will be able to electronically file tax returns, have refund checks direct deposited to a client's bank account within 10 business days, and offer same day and next day refund anticipation loans to qualified clients. This time of year, our primary goal is to provide the biggest and fastest refunds allowed by the IRS."
