Meet The Face Behind Guardian Business Service Inc.

By Guardian Business Services Inc. |


I’m Maria Rataiczak, proud owner of Guardian Business Service Inc.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

My husband and I started Guardian Business Service Inc. forty-six years ago to help people overcome their fear of the IRS and to help them find as many deductions as possible because they deserve to save their hard earned money. Over the years, my client base has grown, but my goal of helping clients find all their deductions has stayed the same.

When it comes to paying taxes, I believe that we should all pay the IRS what we owe. However, the IRS really doesn’t want or need extra contributions from people, so we must claim deductions as it is our right. I derive immense satisfaction from finding money for a client who has not used their deductions properly.

One of the most satisfying professional moments came when a client was released from penalties charged (for a previous accountant’s mistakes) through my efforts, knowledge, and persistence with the IRS. It has been one to my firm’s best moments till date.

As a tax preparation specialist, I enjoy making the tax process more manageable for my clients, and I believe what sets me apart from the others is my ambition to do the best I can for my clients by following the rules set by the government.

I attribute my success to all the referrals my clients give me. I assure them quality services and deliver as per promise. This has been my primary method of retaining clients and obtaining new ones.

When I am not at work, I like to paint with oils, and I like to dance during off times. These things give me the chance to relax and refresh my mind to handle numbers and tax requirements better. A personal cause I support continuously is nurturing my humanity, and I go about it by treating others as I want to be treated.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
