Marguerite Press is proud to spotlight an AA business here in Indianapolis, that should be in demand right about now. ASISTA has combined several innovative ideas into one phenomenal company taking Indianapolis by storm. Three strong African-American women came together to own and operate ASISTA Resource Company with the purpose of giving back to the community. "ASISTA's goal is to create an avenue that can facilitate change in a most necessary way, such as increasing financial knowledge through our tax school and by sharing information, creating employment opportunities, closing the digital divide by making it possible for everyone to own a computer, and by helping small businesses get started on the right track with our business start-up assistance. Imagine…In the comfort of your own home, at a convenient time for you, your taxes can be completed with the possibility of a refund check immediately placed in your hand. No headache, no stress of waiting in line, waiting for your name (or number) to be called, only to realize you've forgotten one of your important papers at home on the table. Sounds too good to be true…THINK AGAIN! The best part is…they come to you at no extra cost. · Want your money fast (Rapid Refundä)?…They've got it! · Prefer direct deposit?…Not a problem! · How about a check printed out for you at your living room table?…They can do it! · Want your refund on a debit card?…Don't have a debit card?… Get one from ASISTA! "Tax time is here and ASISTA has put a new spin on this time of the year. They're not only mobile, but they offer a FREE Deduction Finder Service and, as one of their clients, ASISTA will show you how to turn your everyday expenses into tax deductions. With over 20 years of bonafide experience in accounting and expert training, ASISTA is a must for everyone, no matter what your circumstance." · Did you know you were entitled to higher deductions this year? · Millions of tax refunds go undelivered by the IRS. Could yours be one of them? · Home ownership means less tax to pay…or does it? This is only the tip of the iceberg. Other services include accounting and bookkeeping service for businesses and organizations, computer sales for below average prices with inexpensive ASISTA financing, if necessary (everyone can be approved). They also offer business start-up assistance for those who want to start a business but are not quite sure how to start on the right track.
