About FMV Tax Professionals

Although FMV Tax Professionals is a new name for Fran Vaughan’s tax business, she has been serving Buffalo and Western New York tax clients for more than 25 years. Fran began her tax journey in the Buffalo area with a major tax franchise and was awarded “top performer” in her very first year.

Before arriving in Buffalo, Fran was a volunteer tax preparer (VITA) for the IRS preparing returns for military families living overseas. Upon settling in the Buffalo area twenty-two years ago, Fran spent two years teaching aspiring tax preparers how to prepare tax returns. It quickly became apparent that it was time to create her own “Fran’s Tax Service” to better serve tax clients that wanted a more personalized approach, along with expert advice.

During this growth period of Fran’s Tax Service, Fran was also working as a fundraising professional, raising money and managing donor relations for several of Buffalo’s finest institutions. It is with this combination of expertise in both the Tax Preparation and Not-For-Profit arena that FMV Tax Professionals now offers a full service tax preparation office, preparing tax returns for individuals, business and charitable organizations.

Let Fran Vaughan’s tax expertise reduce the stress in your life, business, or non-profit organization.
