Elaine Kraft –
Elaine M. Kraft was an IRS Revenue Officer for 24 years, and was Vice President and then President of the National Treasury Employees Union chapter during her career with the IRS. In addition, she was the Union representative on the National Leave Bank, served in other leadership and teaching positions, and was also trained as both a classroom instructor and an on-the-job instructor. She was also involved in contract negotiation and disputes within the Union.
After leaving the IRS, Elaine joined the Books Are Fun division of Readers Digest, setting up and running book fairs around the Bucks County and Philadelphia areas. After meeting with companies, she would set up a book/gift fair in a business with a portion of the proceeds going back to the company to be used as a contribution or employee benefit, such as an employee picnic.
In 2000, her path led her back to taxes, which found her in an independent financial services company managing a tax business that the partners had purchased. While there, she passed her Series 7 Securities license which allowed her to work on financial planning and investments.
In 2005, Elaine decided to go out on her own, and started Tax Pro Associates. Elaine’s goal was to create a stress-free quality experience, and to maintain a personal interest in her clients. You are not just a number. She is a member of the PA Society of Tax & Accounting Professionals and the National Association of Tax Preparers. She keeps up to date with tax law changes every year by attending in person seminars and webinars, as well as reading IRS notices and newsletters. The tax laws are ever-changing. Your complete satisfaction is her goal.
Elaine lives in Jamison with her husband Michael who is currently a banking consultant. She has two adult sons who have given her lots of laughs, and 3 grandchildren who bring her much joy.
