About Laine

DSCN0278Laine Ballard is the Sole Proprietor of Tax Treatment.  After receiving her MFA in Writing & Consciousness, studying the craft of Poetry, Laine decided to become a Certified Registered Tax Preparer (CRTP).

While tax preparation and the study of writing & consciousness don’t typically go hand-in-hand, Laine has always excelled equally in left-and-right-brained pursuits.  She began tax preparation with the vision to bring her mathematical skills and penchant for deciphering the tax code to those creatives for whom only one brain hemisphere is dominant.

Laine loves #s much the way she loves words.  Your tax return will receive the same care, accuracy, and attention to detail that Laine provides the words of a poem.

While Laine’s practice specializes in self-employment, she also prepares just about any type of individual tax return.  She is familiar with the new filing requirements for RDPs and same-sex married couples living in community property states like California and has prepared many such returns since the new requirements were announced for the 2010 tax year. She also provides tax preparation to LLCs and Partnerships.  She is not taking any Corporate or non-profit returns at this time.

Laine has been preparing taxes for ten years.
