Are you meeting a different accountant to do your taxes every year? Is your accountant too busy to talk to you? Are you meeting your accountant once a year? Or have you been loosing sleep, every spring, hoping that your tax return has been filed correctly? 

An online survey of over 27,000 individuals in 22 countries by top market-research company, Gfk, revealed that finances are the biggest cause of stress around the world. Financial stress impacts our mental and physical well being, and can have a detrimental affect on our personal relationships.

We believe that ongoing communication and a strong relationship with our clients will ensure their personal and business success. We will get to know you – your financial and your business needs – and conduct ourselves with honesty, integrity, and care. 


Individual Tax Services

From students to seniors and everyone in between, we offer an affordable and convenient way to file your personal tax return. Simply email PDF documents or fax us your documents and we will let you know once your return is ready to file. If you live in the Calgary area, we can come to you to drop off your documents for free. By using CRA’s EFILE, we also make sure you get your refund as fast as possible.


Business Tax Services

We also offer tax services for your self-employed business by making sure you’re taking advantage of all deductions and credits that your business is entitled to. For incorporated businesses, we have the tax accounting expertise to provide annual service or just bring a shoe box of documents, we will take care of the rest…no problem. Depending on the size of the corporation, will determine the cost of preparing to EFILE your annual T2 corporate tax return. We also do roll overs, final returns for closing down a corporation, and GST reporting/filing.


Bookkeeping Services

We offer full cycle accounting services including accounts payable, accounts receivable, bank reconciliations, payroll, cash flow, budgeting, and financial statement preparation. As a small business owner, your time is better spent focusing on your clients. Let us focus on managing your books to save you valuable time and money.


Payroll Direct Deposit

One of our newest services is payroll. Just send us the hours, salaries, and commissions for your employees and we’ll do the rest. We can prepare paycheques or send your employees their pay via direct deposit. We can also submit your payroll taxes and prepare T4s and ROEs.


Clients trust professionals to safeguard their sensitive information. Using e-mail is just like sending a postcard. Sensitive information such as SIN#’s, birthdates and financial information can easily be intercepted and cause serious harm such as identity theft and ruin your reputation and the association that you belong to. 

So who is reading your e-mail? The fact is you just don’t know and with all the news lately about customer information being exposed through massive corporate data breaches the Canadian Privacy Commissioner is pushing for hefty fines and tougher legislation. People across Canada, including your clients, are demanding that steps are taken to protect their personal information.

Michael Lawrence Woodlock

Michael Lawrence Woodlock

President and Owner

Michael was born in 1943 at the Alberta Holy Cross Hospital in Calgary, to an Irish Catholic Family, well after the birth of his siblings (by 20 years). His brothers, sister, and many other family members fought in the second world war (Navy) – all were involved in D-day and all, thankfully, came home.

Michael was an avid hockey player, a cub scout, a boy scout, an air cadet, and a pilot in his youth. He married his high school sweetheart at 17, and continued to work and study. Between 1964 and 1970, he flew covert military operations and, by 1970, was the father of four. 

After leaving the military, Michael served with the Calgary Fire Department until 1999; an experience he cherishes until today. After his wife's passing from cancer in 2004, Michael became an enthusiastic traveller, meeting a Russian “girl" in Australia in late 2005. The two have been inseparable every since.

Self motivation and thirst for success didn't align well with retirement (even though playing golf every winter in Arizona was a fun way to celebrate the past's hard work). In 2007, Michael decided to renew and update his financial skills working, first, with H&R Block (275 returns in one year!), then forming Michael Woodlock Tax Service, Tax Service Calgary and, now, Tax Service Year Round Ltd. Michael continues to update his skills each and every year with programs, conferences, and seminars.


"We've hired Michael at Tax Service Year Round for the past two years and are so glad we did! Michael has expert knowledge of the subject through years of experience in the tax and accounting businesses. Michael is professional and always helpful. He is always happy to answer any questions we have (which is typically quite a few!) and goes out of his way to provide us with as much information as possible. 

We would recommend Michael to our own friends and family and certainly plan to use Michael's Tax Service Year Round for years to come!"
