Meet That Girl Paris Claypool-Beavers, Owner of Paris Tax Service & Notary LLC
Paris Claypool-Beavers is the Owner of Paris Tax Service & Notary LLC in Detroit, Michigan. She started doing taxes in 2006 after she graduated from high-school with a local Tax company. Her young mind wasn’t sure of a career path but she always knew that she wanted to be an entrepreneur. After a few years of experience, Paris grew a love for the accounting/tax industry and took up college courses in Business & Accounting. Paris decided to start her own Tax Firm and also became a MI notary. In 2009, Paris Tax Service was founded as a home-based sole-proprietorship. After a few years of growing clientele, Paris began to rent kiosk stations in check cashing stores, grocery stores, and booths at the mall to service more customers. She leased her first unit on West Seven Mile Road Detroit in 2013. While there Paris worked on providing the best customer service in addition to her industry knowledge to stay growing in the tax business. As she grew, she knew that she could not run all business alone. Paris trained and hired other preparers, and an office assistant to help things run more smoothly. Paris faithfully stayed in that location for 10 years until she took advantage of a new great opportunity to own her own property location. The new location is 7115 West 8 Mile Rd in Detroit, MI. Her goal is to make Paris Tax Service & Notary LLC a ONE STOP SHOP for business in the community providing a variety of business services.
