Thank you for your support and loyalty over the years. Without you, Gautax would not be the inspired accounting firm it is today.

Together we survived the stock market crash of 2007, along with the resulting recession/depression. Together we survived the massive impact that COVID 19 has had on our businesses and lives. Together we have and together we can!

3. Accountants helped write the Bible

​Before writing the Gospel that bears his name, St. Matthew worked as a tax collector. Another tax collector was Saul, who took the name Paul after his conversion and wrote several books of the New Testament.

4. An accountant invented bubble gum

Accountant Walter Diemer worked for the Fleer chewing gum factory and experimented with gum recipes in his spare time. He invented the modern formula for bubble gum in 1926 and was the first to market it commercially. ​The gum was pink because that was the only food coloring the factory had available.


5. Accountants handle the annual Oscar vote

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences employs certified public accountants to tabulate all the Oscar ballots and declare winners. The Academy says that accountants are ideally suited for this task because of their reputation for objectivity and attention to detail.
