Family Owned SE Portland Tax Preparer Since 1999

Back in 1999, at the height of Instant Messenger and boy band popularity, Eve and Peter Davis decided to start a business that would help others get their taxes done. This left more time for their clients to chat with their friends online and listen to heartthrobs sing love songs.

Long before this business plan came to fruition, Eve’s grandmother owned a beauty salon called In or Out Beauty Salon. The idea was that the client could come to her, or she could go to them. This helped those who were housebound or physically unable to go to a salon to still get the same service and assistance as those where were able to come in.

Inspired by this compassionate idea, Eve chose to continue her grandmother’s legacy and apply the same model from the hair salon to her tax business. In this way, In or Out Tax Services, Inc. was created. Over the years, In or Out Tax has seen quite a bit of growth, becoming incorporated in 2011, and now has a team that consists of five tax preparers, a CPA, and two Enrolled Agents with the IRS.

We are pleased to introduce each member of our In or Out family:
