BUSINESS BITS


Barnes Tax Services

If you are looking for a new tax preparer this year, you might want to check out Barnes Tax Services, LLC. Owner Wendi Barnes opened up her bookkeeping services in November 2005, and has now expanded to include tax preparation as well.
“I provide tax preparation for individuals (including those with a Schedule C) and offer bookkeeping services to small businesses that may require assistance with their accounts payable, receivables, bank reconciliations, and monthly reporting,” explained Barnes.
Barnes has experience locally as well as nationally. She has been the offsite business manager for a church in Maryland since 2005. During those six years, she has also assisted the church’s daycare center and Christian school in the same capacity, and has created and maintained websites for them also.
Barnes says she offers her services at affordable prices, and plans to add on payroll services in the future.
Barnes Tax Services is located at 7119 Cedar Highlands, west off Myers Lake Avenue. Business hours are M-Th 9:30-5:30 p.m, Friday 9-4 p.m., Saturday 9:30-noon (by appointment), Sunday-closed. Evenings (after 5:30 p.m.) by appointment only.

Pro Auto Works

If you’re looking to try out a new repair shop with experienced mechanics, check out Pro Auto Works, at 15670 Northland Drive, next door to J&R Auto.
Owners Carl and Rich Straub opened the shop in July 2011. They make repairs on both foreign and domestic cars, and also work on diesel vehicles. Muscle car restoration is one of their specialties.
Because they know how hard it is to sometimes get to a repair shop when you work full time, they are open seven days a week, and stay open until 8 p.m. each evening. Hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sundays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For more information, give them a call at 616-696-TUNE (8863).
