Our Philosophy

At Patterson Tax, the customer is always our focus! This saying by Mahatma Gandhi is one of our beliefs:

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.”

We believe that good service is good business!
