Meet our founder.
Hey! I'm Cathy McDonough, EA. I started Incline Accounting in 2014 to help business owners grow financially healthy businesses and avoid overpaying in taxes.
Aside from my accounting degree and background in corporate accounting, I'm also an Enrolled Agent (EA) which means I'm authorized by the federal government to represent taxpayers in matters involving the IRS (audits, etc.).
In my spare time, I enjoy exploring Colorado with my husband and five kids.
What's in a name? The Incline.
The Manitou Incline (a.k.a "The Incline") is a popular hiking trail just west of Colorado Springs, Colorado. It's a steep climb up more than 2,700 steps along an old inclined railway route.
The climb can be grueling. Even brutal. But you don't want to take the "bail trail" and give up just past the halfway point. That defeats the whole purpose.
Your focus — what keeps you going — is reaching the top. The views and bragging rights are legendary. Not to mention the cardiovascular benefits if you don't have a heart attack before reaching the end.
Sounds a lot like running a business, doesn't it?Our passion — and the promise behind our name — is helping you "reach the top" and see the payoff for all your hard work.
