OUR STORY


The Callahan Group was formed in 2009 with the purpose of providing professional, specialized tax and financial services. Our desire was to continue working with our loyal clientele, and our intent was to treat each client and their situation with an individual focus and specific solutions. We chose the name for our firm to represent two things: the first was our large family, "our group" which is the driving force behind who we really are, and the second was to include our clients who we feel are our extended family and who treat us as theirs as well. We strive to develop long lasting relationships with our clients, helping them plan for and go through life's joys, growth, pains, setbacks and challenges. We know that every client's tax return, situation, goals, and decisions are different and want to give you our best advice and strategy to succeed.

We currently have clients who have been part of our group for more than 30 years. We have provided services to clients who live and work as far away as the extreme four corners of the U.S., some who live in other countries, and some who are in the U.S. from other countries. We work through various methods and technologies to find client solutions and provide services, no matter where the client might be at that time.
