Member Spotlight - A Taxing Solution
Terrie Bowen has been coming to Red River since she was a toddler and has memories of coming down the original Red River Pass. Her mom and dad first came to town in 1955 and returned every summer, eventually buying a place here. The Bowen family enjoyed fishing and hiking and just about everything about Red River, but admits they were more into summer activities than winter recreation. As fate would have it, her husband owns and operates "The Sled Shed" snowmobile rentals with her help.
She decided to move her tax business from Missouri to Red River in 2001, and live here full time so she could take care of her father. This year, Terrie celebrates her 45th year in the tax business.
Terrie says that because so many people knew her and trusted her, she quickly gained a long list of clients. In recent years, her services have extended further into Taos County, providing free tax services to AARP members.
She employs up to two additional staff to help during tax season.
A Taxing Solution has been a proud member of the Red River Chamber of Commerce for the past four years. Terrie's office is located inside the Miner's Mall building at the west end of town.
