Charles Gwaltney

Founder

In the late 1960’s, Charles Gwaltney got an itch. He was teaching full-time, but had always wanted to try tax accounting. He decided to pursue his desire and started working part-time at H&R Block. In 1972, he opened Gwaltney Tax Service. He wanted to offer a more personal experience at a better price than the big tax companies. What started as a part-time gig doing fellow teachers’ taxes turned into a successful 47 year tax business.
