About Padgett Business Services

Our Office

Our Office

In 1965, Walter Padgett had a vision. As a small business owner, he witnessed fellow business owners struggling to manage their companies’ tax and financial issues. His solution? Padgett Business Services, a company that provides small businesses with the expertise they need to address those issues and assist them in building a successful business. Decades later, we’re proud to say, small business owners still rely on Padgett. So much so that we now have thousands of clients, and hundreds of local owner-operated offices.
