Our Story

 
 

For over 15 years, My Tax Guy In Houston (MTGIH) has been a reliable and trusted partner for our clients. Before founding MTGIH, Douglas Hord worked in both a private law practice as well as the mortgage industry. After a short tax and mortgage business venture with a graduate school friend, Douglas branched off and officially founded MTGIH in 2003. With Douglas’ 38 years of experience in small business and tax consulting, and one of the handful of consultants in the country with an Advanced Crypto Tax Expert (ACT-E) certification, MTGIH has continued helping hundreds of businesses and individuals stay current while more effectively managing their wealth.

Since then, we’ve built our entire business around three core principles: A relentless focus on data security, unrivaled subject matter expertise, and top-notch customer service. What does all of this actually mean? It means that we protect your personal information at all times, without exception. It means that we stay current on all IRS and tax code changes, so that you receive the most timely advice. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, it means that we prioritize providing you with the highest degree of customer service humanly possible.

Simply put, there’s a good reason why we’re one of Houston’s top-reviewed tax firms. One of the many things that clients love about MTGIH is our ability to not only explain the what behind their unique tax situation, but also the why. Perhaps this is why so many of them come back year after year. By helping you better understand the ins and outs of your specific tax liabilities, you become capable of making smarter financial decisions throughout the entire year. If something unexpectedly changes mid-year and you need additional advice, then we’re still here to point you in the right direction. This is why we consider ourselves as your tax partner:

We treat you like family, and we’re always here when you need us.
