Coast To Coast Tax Service was started in 2012 by a mother-daughter team who believe in treating every client like family. Joyce and Samantha Browning have over 18 years of tax experience and currently hold a 5 star office rating awarded in 2014. They have maintained that rating by preparing accurate taxes, upholding the highest standards of integrity, education, and dedication. .
Joyce is from Milford Connecticut, she comes from a family of entrepreneurs and learned from a young age the value of hard work and integrity. She is kind, warm and welcoming, always willing to lend a helping hand, to anyone in need. She moved to Florida in the 90’s to care for her ill father. This ambitious woman took over and successfully operated her father’s businesses. She did this, while caring for 3 children, a husband, in-law’s and dinner was always at 6pm, everyone was welcome. Over the years she has remained married to the love of her life and father of her children. Together they have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. She started in the tax industry in 2003 when her daughter wanted to try something new. As a mother, she is always supportive of her children and willing to participate in their adventures. Having a background in accounting and bookkeeping working in the tax industry fit perfectly. Everyone wanted to work in Joyce’s tax office because of the positive atmosphere she created. Working in her office, was fun, exciting and a pleasure. Her office was a success each season because she is a success. Joyce has always been very independent, strong and successful in her career choices and in life. Joyce would go onto teach and manage tax offices for the next 9 years. She mentored many new managers and takes great joy in giving others some of her wisdom. To this day she is still friends with many she taught and mentored. When Coast To Coast started she knew the risk and was up for the challenge. Having been self-employed she knew the impact of opening a new business and looked forward to starting a new adventure with her daughter. She is a true gem and radiates joy and love. She has impacted the lives of many and everyone loves her dearly.
Samantha is curious as a cat, serious, ambitious and dedicated. She believes that, she is a “Peacock” and has tail feathers. Joyce shakes her head watching Samantha joyfully frolicking around. Joyce must remind Samantha, that she did not birth a “Peacock”. However, like any good mother, she saves pictures of Peacocks to show her daughter and encourages her to continue frolicking. Samantha is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have one child. During tax season, she is found behind a desk with a smile on her face, pen behind her ear, and a child in her lap helping her prepare tax returns. Samantha claims; two minds are better than one, nothing better than a young mind to help her. Her background is in Non-profit, marketing, and miscellaneous financial industries. Like her mother, she spent 9 years managing tax offices and teaching tax classes. She enjoyed her time teaching and mentoring new trainees because she loves to watch others achieve success. In her spare time she tries to keep busy and dabbles in many different things. FYI, never ask what she is dabbling in, because the list is long. Her favorite quote is one that describes her perfectly. “You will find that life is still worthwhile if you just smile” Charlie Chaplin
