Tax preparation with integrity.


all in the family, since 1936

Coats Tax Service was founded by Vera Coats in West Plains, MO, and has remained a family owned business since. First passed on to Vera’s daughter Anita Coats, and then to Anita’s son Charles Coats. Charles’ daughter, Rachel Coats (now Rachel Albin), opened a second location in Springfield, MO in 2005 and has since moved in with STL Insurance Group in Nixa.

Rachel Albin graduated with a Bachehelor’s Degree in Accounting in 2014, and has worked in the tax industry since starting with her father at the age of 16. She is a licensed insurance agent and works out of our CC location in Nixa, both servicing her own insurance customers and preparing income taxes.
