Meet Michelle Zambos-Duerksen, AFSP
Michelle began preparing tax returns with her father from 1992 – 1996. She moved on to work in Administration, Bookkeeping, IT and Human Resources for a variety of organizations ranging from Charities, Small Business, Military, Engineering Firm and County Government. In 2011 and 2012, she provided technical support for a popular tax preparation software company. During that time she noticed people do not take tax deductions they are not aware of. In 2013 she went back to helping people save as much money as legally possible on their taxes. Michelle and her business partner, Ron Bowers, re-established Affordable Tax Service in 2014, and continue to serve the Stuart, FL area.
Today Michelle and her husband Mike live in Fort Worth, TX; she works remotely from Texas when not in Florida. Together they have three adult children and two Granddaughters. When not doing taxes Michelle travels with Mike or will be found Scrapbooking. She has a passion for tax returns and it shows when she is helping clients.
