About Us

Our Firm

IN MY HOME TAX SERVICE was founded in January 1975 by John Valko. For 46 years we have been providing quality, personalized financial services to local individuals and small businesses. Our expertise ranges from tax guidance to accounting and payroll services.

In My Home Tax Service has grown from a small part-time hobby business at its inception into a full-time year-round tax and accounting business. Today, it has grown into one of the leading firms and has hundreds of clients in the SE Wisconsin areas and in many states throughout the United States. Through the combination of expertise and experience we assure that every client receives the close attention they deserve. We know it is our dedication to high standards and work ethic that is the reason our clients return year after year.

Our Goal

At IN MY HOME TAX SERVICE, our goal is to help our clients lower their tax liabilities by optimizing deductions. Optimizing deductions involves working closely with our clients to fully understand their personal and financial situation and to recognize where there may be opportunities for tax savings. We strive to provide our clients with the information they need to achieve this goal.

Understanding that to do this, we must keep current on the everchanging tax laws, we attend many tax seminars and on-line study courses during the off season to obtain the required CPE credits necessary to maintain our credentials as Registered Tax Return Preparers.

Our dedication to hard work has earned the respect of the business and financial community in and around the SE Wisconsin areas. We believe this to be a direct derivative of our solid reputation and responsiveness to our clients. Whether you are a current or a prospective client, you can be rest assured that individuals and businesses who choose to work with us will receive competent and timely advise. IN MY HOME TAX SERVICE is dedicated to meeting these goals with high standards of excellence and professionalism. We have been a staple of the community for years and pride ourselves on the level of esteem we have earned.


We work with you on a personal level to determine the best solutions for your unique needs, then leverage our seasoned expertise to achieve the best possible results.


We are your trusted partner in success. Our firm is large enough to offer a full range of professional services at a fair price, but small enough to give you the individual attention that you deserve.


Rest assured that when a need arises, our firm is ready and capable to handle everything for you so you can focus on what matters most to you.
