Navigate self-employment

taxes without stress

Virtual tax preparation and bookkeeping for service-based solopreneurs and independent contractors in Colorado.

I bring years of tax filing experience from managing my own business, and I’m excited to assist you with yours. Whether you’re a massage therapist, house cleaner, rideshare/delivery driver, dog sitter, or another small business owner, I’m here to help. In my spare time, I volunteer at Tax Help Colorado, further honing my skills to benefit you.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how I can assist you. 

Why choose me?

If you’re reading this, you’re likely an entrepreneur who is nervous about (or dare I say, extremely frustrated with?) figuring out taxes and bookkeeping for your business.

After all, love of accounting is probably not why you got into business for yourself!

That’s where I come in. My name is Tamara Joy Lackey but I go by Joy.

I’m a seasoned entrepreneur who learned the ins and outs of filing business taxes through firsthand experience and trial and error.

Having navigated the complexities of self-filing for my own business, I now bring that background to assist other small businesses.

I’ll guide you through the maze of tax regulations, sharing practical insights gained from personal experience to ensure your business thrives financially.


1. Peace of mind and ease when it comes to taxes. I’ve done the hard part; you just need to give me any additional tax information you’ll have, and I will do the rest!

2. Someone who knows the field. I’m not just an accountant. I’ve started multiple businesses from scratch, and helped others through the process as well. I get what’s hard as a business owner, and I can explain what needs to be done and why so that you have a full picture of your finances and tax situation.

3. Connected systems. You don’t have to worry about what information to get from your bookkeeper for your tax preparer. It’s all in house.

4. Easy 1099’s. As a business owner, one of the hardest things is figuring out when and how to file your 1099’s. I take the guesswork out and get it done with little effort on your part.
