Who We Are

DBS Tax was started in Dalton, GA in the 80's. It was operated by Mrs. Willie Ables for many years. In 2003, Mr. Chris Jackson, Willie's son, started working with her at DBS to help grow and sustain the business while offering a tax experience like no other. Over the next 14 years, Chris would work under Willie, learning everything she has to teach. 

It was in February of 2016, Mrs. Willie Ables decided it was time for her to retire. This is when Mr. James Cole became a part of DBS Tax. Mr. Cole purchased Mrs. Ables part of the company, allowing her to retire and spend her time at the beach. We could all be so lucky! :) Mr. Cole has an A.A.S. degree in Business Management & Accounting, an A.A.S. degree in Financial Accounting, and a B.S. degree in Business Management. Mr. Cole had been doing business management and project management for a personal employer for several years when he was presented the opportunity to become a part of DBS. 

Since this acquisition, Mr. Jackson and Mr. Cole have worked to bring their clients an unmatched level of service while remaining the best value around! We have since grown and added a second location, in Cleveland, TN. We have helped hundreds of clients, business and personal, and we would love the opportunity to help you with your tax and/or business needs!
