SAS Tax & Accounting was opened in 2004 by Susan A Smith, an Enrolled Agent. Susan started preparing taxes in her home for a small group of clients. She now operates out of an office directly on Hwy 31, with a second location in Millbrook, AL.  She couldn't have done it without her amazing clients.

SAS Taxes' truest passion is helping small, local businesses grow!

SAS Tax & Accounting is honored to be a Small Business of the Year Finalist, three times by the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce.
