Sharon Jones knew she wanted to get into the tax business at a young age.
Her mother used to do income tax returns part-time from home and because she didn’t have a copy machine available to make multiple copies of tax forms, Jones, who was in high school at the time, would copy the information down by hand.
“I was like her copy machine,” Jones said. “That’s when I first got interested in doing that for a living.”
Jones now runs her own H&R Block office here in Navarre. It’s located at 8516 Navarre Parkway and the office has grown from four employees to 15. Jones has been doing taxes for close to 30 years now.
Because tax laws are always changing, she is always learning something new.
“I’m constantly learning, especially with the changes that took place for 2018,” Jones said. “There have been more changes than I’ve seen in years. But I enjoy it. This job is never boring.”
And even when tax season ends in April, the learning doesn’t stop.
“There will be a lot to go over this summer,” Jones said. “We’ll definitely stay busy.”
Jones, who used to work for the H&R Corporate Office, said she strives to get the best tax return possible for every individual. If someone happens to owe money, she will do everything she can to help that person save money and pay in as little as possible.
Everyone has to do taxes and that means Jones gets to meet people from all backgrounds. It’s one of her favorite things about the job.
“Everyone has to file their taxes and you get to meet different people. I enjoy that part of the job,” Jones said. “I also love that the job is never boring. Every day there is something new.”
The Navarre location is open 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Friday until April 15th. The office is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays during that time.
Once tax season ends, the hours shift to 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and it’s open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
“We’re open year round,” Jones said. “There are always people who come in maybe with a late return or they receive a tax form in the mail. We’re here to help out.”
And if your schedule is a little crazy and you are struggling to find time to do your taxes, drop-off service is available.
