Mr. Tax Systems was started in 1968 by Joe and Anne Gantt.  Their vision was to offer personalized, caring, professional income tax preparation services to the Panama City, FL area.

The original office was located in downtown Panama City, but in the early 1970's the office moved to the current location on 11th Street.  In 1988 the Gantt's opened and operated a second office on Panama City Beach and the downtown office began a second generation under the operation of Joe Franco.

Over the years, many aspects have changed in the income tax preparation industry.  Ever changing tax laws, computerized tax preparation methods and the advent of electronic filing via the internet have created major challenges and improvements.

One thing that has never changed, and will never change, is the personalized care concept that has always been an integral part of Mr. Tax Systems.  We treat ALL of our clients with personal care, courtesy and respect while providing knowledgeable, professional income tax preparation and bookkeeping at reasonable prices.


We prepare federal and state Individual, Partnership, C-Corporation, S-Corporation, Estate, Trust and Gift Tax Returns.  We include electronic filing to the IRS with all returns.  Bank Product refund options are also available for individuals whose tax return is eligible.


We also offer quarterly and annual payroll tax return preparation services for federal and state filing.  This includes Forms 941, UCT-6, 940, W-2/W-3 and  1099.  We are not a payroll leasing service, but we can prepare the necessary paperwork for you.  Alternatively, we can instruct you in the payroll process yourself.


We offer a variety of bookkeeping services to help with your business accounting.  Keeping accurate records is essential to being an informed business owner.  Our staff uses QuickBooks accounting software, which is a well respected and trusted accounting program for many years.

We have several bookkeeping options to fit your needs.

If you'd like to "do it yourself", we can teach you how to get the most from QuickBooks with our QuickBooks Certified Pro Advisor, Mary Franco.  She is also available on a consultant basis to help you fix issues you have with using QuickBooks.

If bookkeeping is too overwhelming and time consuming for you, then we can take care of it all for you on a monthly or other periodic basis.  Ask us for a quote. Our prices are quite reasonable.


We stand behind our work and are available to assist you in the event of any IRS contact with you.  Hopefully, you won't be contacted by the IRS, but if you are, we will help in dealing with the matter - at no charge to you.

In the event your tax return is selected for audit, we will help you prepare for the audit.  We will also accompany you to IRS office audits in Panama City.

If you ever have ANY questions regarding your income taxes throughout the year, we encourage you to call or schedule an appointment.  There is no additional charge for this service.  We want you to be informed with any decisions that have a tax consequence BEFORE you make them.  We feel that is our obligation to you, our client.
