About  Us

Long story short

Tax Time is a cloud-based accounting services firm headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina. We specialize in small and micro-sized businesses who want to focus their time on what they do best and leave the back office work to someone else. Our industries of particular expertise include law firms, real estate and other independent professional services organizations. We offer enterprise class services, including bookkeeping, payroll, budgeting, forecasting and more. We also offer individual income tax return preparation services.

The firm was founded by James Doty, an accountant for more than twenty years, who began his career in the federal government with the U.S. Department of State. He ultimately settled in Charleston after living and working abroad in places such as Russia, Austria and Canada. He still gets the itch to travel from time-to-time, so the firm is designed to be virtual, meaning work can be done remotely from Europe as easily as it is done from home base in Charleston. This allows Tax Time to serve clients anywhere they might be. This is an exciting time to be in business with all the technology available to make our work more efficient.

James is an Enrolled Agent, enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service, and holds a B.S. in accounting from Virginia Tech. He is also a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and a member of the National Society of Accountants. He serves or has served as a volunteer on various property association and nonprofit boards and was the South Carolina volunteer representative on the IRS Taxpayer Advocacy Panel for 2013.

Because we are located in the lowcountry and, specifically in Charleston, we have a special interest in the startup boom happening here. Charleston’s status as Silicon Harbor is becoming more widely known across the country, so more innovative thinkers are relocating here to start their own entrepreneurial ventures. We would love to be part of your team and help you grow. Get in touch and let’s have a chat about how we can work together to create the best version of your business idea as possible.

We are big believers in local first, so also please get in touch if you want to join us in making our community an even better place to live and work than it already is.

Tax Time isn’t just about the numbers. We live and work here and want to make business decisions that are good ones for us and our community. And we would like to help you do the same. Give us a call or drop us a line and let’s chat about your dreams and how we can help you achieve them.
