Who we are

Despite the wide array of services and clients that Coast Accounting and Taxes, Inc. handles, we're run by a nimble two-person crew.

Michelle I. Hughes has more than 15 years of tax preparation experience, and has been doing small business accounting and payroll for over 25 years. Her accreditations include:

EA (Enrolled Agent, IRS): Following an extensive education, experience, testing and background check process, this designation allows Michelle to represent you or your business before the IRS, should the need arise. LTC (Licensed Tax Consultant): Licensed with the State of Oregon Board of Practitioners, Michelle has attained the highest level of Tax Practitioner Licensing issued by the state, which maintains the strictest standards in the country.

Annette Casiano is our dedicated bookkeeper and payroll clerk.

Enrolled Agents, Licensed Tax Consultants and Tax Preparers must spend at least 30 hours annually attending a variety of ongoing educational courses to keep up skills.
