“Integrity. It’s my business philosophy and standard. It’s how I live my life – it’s an integral part of me.”
Integrity of Madison County is named for a reason. Accounting, payroll services, consultation and tax preparation are the products, but integrity is the main focus of the business.
“My clients deserve someone with integrity to prepare their taxes and advise them in their businesses. It’s my business philosophy and standard. It’s how I live my life – it’s an integral part of me.”
Owner Yvonne Chastain has 20 years of experience providing accounting and tax-preparation services. As an enrolled agent with the IRS since 2010, Chastain is able to legally represent clients in the event of an IRS audit.
Though an experienced nurse, Yvonne found juggling a demanding nursing career with a busy family —she's mother to four children and now proud grandmother of two—too much of a sacrifice. Yvonne left her nursing job and began volunteering at school and serving as a church treasurer. That led to a job at a local accounting and tax preparation business, and eventually to open her own shop. “I love math… I love numbers. If I wanted to make lots of money, I could have gone back to the hospital. But I love what I do.”
Yvonne and her staff place a high priority on customer relationships. “We treat people how they deserve to be treated and take the extra step or two to make sure they are happy. We strive to know everybody who walks through the door by name… even though we may only see them once a year.”
