American Tax and Financial Group

About American Tax and Financial Group

American Tax and Financial Group was founded in 1997 in Dallas, Texas by Calvin Dale Brown II, as a sole proprietor certified public accounting firm.

The Company had very humble beginnings. With no more than $700 and a “dream”, Mr. Brown secured a lease on a small office, measuring about 120 square feet, and the practice was born.

The first full year of business, the practice grossed about $35,000, mainly providing income tax services, including electronic filing, to individual taxpayers. Year two saw an increase in revenues from business services, as well as more tax clients, and revenue doubled to about $70,000. After just three years in business, the practice was grossing about $100,000 annually.

Over the next three years, Mr. Brown continued to run and grow the practice. After 6 years of running a local CPA firm, it was now time, and the decision was made, to expand the practice nationally, and American Tax and Financial Group was born.

Mr. Brown’s vision for the Company is for it to be America’s leading and premier financial services company, offering tax, comprehensive financial, and business services to the American public through a nationwide group of Certified Public Accountants and trained tax professionals (independent franchisees).
