Our History

Every good story starts with a love story, and ours is no different! Data Tax Inc. was founded by Raymond and DeeAnn Malone in 1979. DeeAnn started preparing taxes in Southern California for Skousen Tax Service in 1963. Over the years she loved doing tax returns so much that she talked Raymond into joining her and they became quite a team! When they moved back to Idaho in 1971 they started over building a tax business that was really needed in the area, growing until they opened an office in 1979 to better serve the community. And Data Tax Inc was born! We were one of the first firms in the area to prepare returns by computer, first sending them to a computer bank, then actually preparing them on site by computer beginning in 1983. We were one of the first offices to get approved and begin to efile returns in 1991.

In 1999, because of health reasons, Raymond and DeeAnn Malone retired. And we, the new generation, assumed the mantel of the business. We are Eugene and Christine Scott, and I am Raymond and DeeAnn’s daughter. I have worked in their business most of my life, but Eugene and I came to work in the office in 1982, and have been here since. Our goal is still the same as Raymond and DeeAnn’s, to provide quality tax return preparation and bookkeeping without breaking the bank! We are both AFSP certified with the IRS and spend hours in training each month to make sure we offer the best product available. We take pride in our work, and even though Ray and DeeAnn are no longer with us, we think they would be proud!

  • We have run a youth basketball league for 31 years, (www.bonnevillebasketball.com). We needed help with our taxes and turned to Data Tax being referred to us by family members who had been using them for several years. Data Tax has also been doing our personal and small business taxes for the last 15 years. We have been so pleased with the knowledge and how professional and quick they are. We have had no problems and they are so good to work with. Everything has been done on time and we have had no problems what so ever. We will continue using Data Tax!!

  • I saw that Data Tax was a local tax prep company AND that they will answer any tax prep questions you have for free. I called with a few questions just a minute ago and Christine gave me a few pointers on how to get the most out of my return for next year. I was planning on filing on my own but I think I will go to Data Tax to make sure I get the most I can.
