Our firm provides outstanding service to our clients because of our dedication to the three underlying principles of professionalism, responsiveness and quality.


Our firm was founded in 1957 by Ray Goettig.   Prior to beginning the practice, he was struck with polio in September of 1952 and spent several months at the Sister Kenny Institute in Minneapolis.   He was one of a few who was put in an 'iron lung' and survived.   He left the Institute a parapalegic, began his therapy with determination to learn how to eventually walk again with leg braces, using crutches.    Having a wife and two small children to support, he began his studies in the field of accounting and went on to complete his education with honors.   His practice was based on a work ethic bar none.  His passion for representing the common man led him to pursue licensure with the Treasury Department to represent and act as an advocate for clients before the IRS.   He studied and cited Tax Code and Tax Court case law with authority.   He led in his field by example, helping to found a national professional association for fellow tax practitioners where he served as director, held several offices including a term as president of the National Association of Enrolled Agents.  In 1976, he was pleased when Gwyn, one of three daughters, chose to join the firm.  Together they served clients until 1993 when Ray died from complications of Lymphoma cancer.   In 1996, Gwyn's husband,  Dr James Ruddy, brought his expertise as a skilled advocate and legal negotiator to the firm.  Dr Ruddy brought a useful depth of reference and knowledge to the firm from his advanced education and experience in business, engineering, law and medicine.   Mindful of, and remembering Ray's passion, the firm's  focus continues to be service to the client.  By combining our expertise and experience, each client receives close personal and professional attention.

High standards, service and specialized staff spell the difference between our outstanding performance, and other firms. As Enrolled Agents, authorized to practice before the Treasury Department, we maintain an association with other EA's across the country to bring you specialized tax services.
