About Me – Pauline’s Tax Service and Stephanie Cardenas

Hi. My name is Stephanie and I have been preparing tax returns since 2005.  Pauline was my grandma and she passed away in March of 2007 so I have been preparing tax returns solo since then.  She enjoyed people and loved that she could help in a special way.  She was training me to take over for her so that she could retire and knowing that “her people” were going to be taken care of was very important; I’m glad I could give her that.  I still have most of these clients today.

I have been in a relationship for 8 years and have been been engaged for 2 of those years, so far.  Weddings are more expensive nowadays then they once were…. that’s discouraging.

We have 3 dogs: Alvin, Valentino, and Tiny and they are all the kids I need, so far.  Alvin is a Chihuahua-MinPin Mix and he’s 11 years old. He came with me.  Valentino is a shiba-inu and Bradley bought him before I moved in. Tiny is a chihuahua-Pomeranian mix and he literally is precious.
