Our Team







I have spent most of my life in or near Jackson.  I raised my children here.  I love Jackson - it's a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family.

I attended SEMO with emphasis in accounting and spent the next 12 years working in the field of accounting and taxes.

In 1985 when my second child was born I was looking for a way to make some income and still have time for my children.  I started the bookkeeping and tax service in a spare bedroom of the house and it grew from there.

In 2005 I took and passed the Enrolled Agent exam.

Today we have two offices that do a total 1800 tax returns annually.

I am on the board of the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce currently serving as president (2013).

I am a member of the "National Association of Enrolled Agents", and the "American Institute of Professional Bookkeepers".

Barb - Tax Preparer

My husband Rick and I have 2 children and have lived in Egypt Mills for over 23 years. 

I studied accounting in both high school and college but worked as a secretary before coming to work here.  I started working for Koehler Bookkeeping at the front desk and after 2 years moved on to preparing tax returns and processing bookkeeping for clients.  In 2012, I completed a Tax Preparation Program and also passed the RTRP exam, which designates me as a "Registered Tax Return Preparer" with the IRS.  I am also a member of the "National Association of Tax Preparers". 

I, along with the other preparers here at Koehler's, attend a minimum of 15 hours of Continuing Education each year, with an emphasis in Tax Law and Ethics.  I enjoy the work I do.  My goal is to provide each of my clients with great customer service, the greatest possible refund the correct way, and up to date, hassle free bookkeeping.


I have lived in the Jackson area most of my life and raised my children here.

I started at Beverly Koehler Bookkeeping in January 2004, working at the front desk.

I completed my Tax Preperation courses in the fall of 2004 and started preparing tax returns in January of 2005.

I passed the IRS "Registered Tax Return Preparer" exam in August of 2012 and became a RTRP.  I am a member of the Natinoal Soceity of Tax Professionals.

Besides preparing tax returns I also am a Full Charge Bookkeeper.

I always look forward to seeing my regular clients and meeting new ones when the tax season starts!

Larry - Tax Preparer - Cape Office


I grew up on a farm near Jackson and after high school served in the U.S. Navy. 

I spent eight years on active duty including a tour in Vietnam.  I was also in the U.S Navy Reserve for four years and the U. S. Air Force Reserve for six years and six years in the Colorado National Guard.  I am heavily involved in the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars and will always have a soft spot in my heart for those who have dedicated a part of their life to defending the country that I love.  After 24 years in the military I retired. 

As a civilian I have worked in sales, purchasing and training before becoming a tax preparer.  I attended Indiana University earning my degree in 1982.  I have been preparing tax returns since 2001 and qualified as Registered Tax Return Preparer the first year that the program was available.  I am also a NATP member.
