A local business that cares about local businesses

For over 40 years, we've served individuals and businesses in the surrounding area from our home in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

COVID-19 Update: 3/23/2020

At AVA, our top priority is the safety of our employees, customers, and the neighbors we serve. As a critical industry, we have a responsibility to maintain normal operations for tax preparation, payroll, and bookkeeping.

Our physical location will be closed to clients but remain functional with employees working inside. Although the lobby is closed, we have a drop-off bin on the porch. For pick-up, we have three options: email, pick-up window (see hours of operation below), and mail.

Drop-off is available during regular office hours.

Pick-up is available during the following times:

Extended hours (until 4/19):

  • Monday-Tuesday: 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
  • Wednesday-Thursday: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Regular hours (starting 4/20):

  • Monday-Thursday: 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

We continue to take the necessary steps to protect those in our workplaces and neighborhood while we serve our customers.

  1. You will be contacted by phone about your tax appointment
  2. We will have a conversation with you to plan the drop-off and pick-up of your tax return
  3. Your tax preparer will contact you when your return is nearly finished if needed
  4. Payroll and bookkeeping services will continue

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together in the midst of this national crisis.
