Fireside Tax, Inc. was started as Fireside Services which was a sole proprietorship of Timothy P. Singo, who is an accountant. It was started in 2004 when Tim felt that he had enough experience as a paralegal and a tax preparer to start his own business. If you are looking to have your taxes done, you can call 330-478-1505 to set up an appointment. We use state of the art software and provide a full range of services including electronic filing.
I am often asked why I named my business Fireside and use a brick fireplace for a logo. The fireplace depicted in the logo is the fireplace in the home office that I started the business in. As I searched for a name that would invoke positive images of my business, I was sitting in this room dominated by a fireplace that I enjoyed very much. I often read books on a cold winter night with a fire burning as well as toasting marshmallows and smoores with my wife and kids. The answer was obvious and using a digital camera I created the logo and named the business Fireside Services. I later renamed the business Fireside Tax to avoid confusion with a provider of fireplaces or a chimney sweep.
I then moved into the Canton Centre Mall and quickly realized something was missing. With a little creativity I constructed a stage prop fireplace. It made every move with me and today sits in the waiting room at my current location at 4945 West Tuscarawas Street which is across the street from Central Catholic High School and St. Joan of Arc.
This season we have added another full time accountant, Connie Vogt, who has over ten years experience with preparing taxes, bookkeeping and payroll. This is in addition to Janet Singo who handles payroll and Ben Emerick who works with billing for services provided to developmentally disabled persons. We are really growing and look forward to helping you in any way we can.
