Carroll's National Tax is a well known, privately run, company that has been in business for over 25 years! We are devoted to making your life a little easier each year by assisting you with your tax and bookkeeping needs! Here's a little about our friendly and professional staff...


Tax Associate/Office Manager

Nan Hood came to our office 7 years ago. She has a varied background as a small business owner, educator and executive secretary.  She owned her own local business for 7 years and assisted with her husband's small business for 15 years. She especially enjoys helping our wonderful family of clients in all their tax needs!


Tax Associate

Melanie Hadley is the newest member of our team. She attended Midlands Technical College and completed certificates for Medical Transcription and Medical Office Administrative Assistant. However, Jeff persuaded her to join his office. She has been preparing taxes for a few years and looks forward to assisting our customers with their tax needs. 


Tax Associate

Lana Brodt Widener's career in the tax business began in the back rooms of her mom, Ora Warfield's, tax office at National Tax on Devine over 30 years ago. For her it all started with checking and processing tax returns. A couple of tax seasons she worked as the night receptionist. With a little encouragement she decided to become a tax preparer and has enjoyed her last 15 years working directly with the clients!



When Jeff Carroll left the military in 1986, the one thing Jeff decided he did not want to do was work for other people. When Ora Warfield decided in 2011 to retire and sell National Tax on Devine she turned to Jeff, who had over 25 years experience owning and running successful small businesses, to buy her company and take care of the clients she considered family. Now in his 7th year as owner and president of Carroll's National Tax, her family is now his family. Clients have come to know that they can come to him with any tax question and get the answers and advice they need.
