Welcome to a new tax experience

We prioritize clear communication, efficient processing, and proactive tax solutions. If you’ve experienced frustration due to lack of communication, extended waiting periods, or the inefficiency of traditional tax preparation methods, you’ve come to the perfect place.

Advisors centered around you

Your advisors shouldn’t exist in silos. In silos, advisors can give overlapping and conflicting advice which is time consuming for you, the client.









Our Services

At WR Tax, we embrace the “breaking down the silos” philosophy, setting us apart from traditional CPA and tax firms. This approach means we don’t operate in isolation; instead, we foster collaboration across all aspects of wealth planning and tax strategy.

Where other firms might limit their focus, potentially leading to fragmented advice and missed opportunities, we ensure that our tax advisors work closely with financial planners, investment managers, and estate planning experts under one unified strategy.

This integrated approach allows us to deliver comprehensive, tailored tax solutions that not only optimize your current tax situation but also align with your broader financial goals and future planning. By doing so, we eliminate the pitfalls of poor communication and disjointed advice, ensuring a seamless, informed, and proactive service that addresses all your financial needs.

Tax Planning & Preparation

At WR Tax, we specialize in tax planning and preparation for high net-worth individuals and business owners. Our expert team develops sophisticated tax strategies to navigate the complex tax landscape, ensuring compliance and optimizing your financial health. We go beyond basic tax preparation by proactively managing your tax liabilities throughout the year through detailed analysis of your income, investments, and potential deductions, all aimed at minimizing your tax burden and maximizing wealth growth.

Paden Squires, CPA®, CFP®

Paden Squires founded Squires CPA, LLC, which is now known as WR Tax, in the summer of 2014, marking the beginning of his journey into entrepreneurship. This venture was initially sparked by Squires’ desire to explore entrepreneurship, and the path became clear when a local CPA, on the verge of retirement, presented an opportunity. Through mutual comfort and agreement, Squires was entrusted with serving a significant portion of the retiring CPA’s clientele. This pivotal moment provided him with the courage to transition from the corporate world to the realm of self-employment full-time.

Squires’ business endeavors have not only allowed him to collaborate with remarkable individuals and businesses that inspire him but have also enabled him to leverage his expertise in assisting others with their familial and employee provisions. His role extends beyond professional services, allowing him to support his wife and two daughters, Lexi and Nora, while maintaining an active involvement in his local church community.

A cornerstone of Squires’ business philosophy is to offer personalized service befitting a trusted advisor, avoiding transactional relationships by engaging with clients beyond the tax season. He is committed to ensuring that business relationships receive the attention they merit, irrespective of the season.

Outside his professional life, Paden Squires enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Devin, and their children, supporting local sports teams such as the Chiefs, Royals, and MU Tigers. His passion for education is evident in his role as an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College, where he teaches various accounting courses.
