About Us

danThe man behind the curtain, Dan Traxler EA

Dan Traxler is the president and owner of Traxler & Associates, Inc. As a father of two and husband of one, he has worked hard for 34 years to provide for his family, while continuing to run a highly successful tax business. He received a bachelor’s degree from Biola College, and a master’s degree from Southern States University. Dan is an Enrolled Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. Dan is also a Fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute.   Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation. Enrolled Agents are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the U.S. government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states).

Dan is an avid history buff, focusing on the Old West of the United States. Dan grew up near Earp California and has a good knowledge of Wyatt Earp and the Earp family in California. Dan also has hiked throughout the California Sierra Nevada mountains, surviving and thriving in the outdoors. Dan also plays trumpet In the Amador Community Concert Band.  He is also a long range motorcycle rider and has traveled across the US four times.  His goal is to ride in all of our 50 states.

Behind every good man there is a good woman.
