About Us

Hume's Tax Service, formerly Hume's Econotax, was established in 1994. After noticing that most tax services were very overpriced and under experienced, Jerrad Humerickhouse wanted to provide individuals and businesses with a better, more affordable option. Hume’s Tax Service is one of the most trusted tax preparation businesses in Lawrence.
