Carolyn Rabb

Carolyn Rabb Tax Service opened on September 1, 1982. With one room in Carolyn’s home, she put her first ad in the newspaper. She soon added her first bookkeeping client, who is still with her today. In October 1990, Carolyn turned her garage into her second office.  As the years have passed, the business has grown to include a highly qualified staff and a new office building.  We have four offices, a reception area and a large waiting room with TV just in case you don’t want to miss your favorite program. Also, at last we have a parking lot that we had needed for years. Currently located at 3441 McKinley Road, Johnson City, TN 37604. A brick building with a white porch. Just come out McKinley Road and you can’t miss us.
