Valerie A. Carey

Hello, I am Valerie A Carey. I was born in Ohio and raised in Independence Missouri, I landed in the Huntsville, Alabama area in the 1990's thanks to the United States Army and I fell in love with the area. I have lived in so many places due to being an army spouse and in one of those places that's where I started my tax career.  In 1986 I answered an ad in the newspaper for a position as a receptionist at a major tax preparation company in Stone Mountain, Georgia, and fell in love with the idea of being able to help people complete their taxes.  I took the class that year and followed my husband and the army along with our two children to Belgium and then to Huntsville, AL continuing my new profession.  Retirement from the army came soon after and we settled in Hazel Green in 1991. At this time, I also went to work for the Civilian Welfare Fund at Redstone Arsenal Alabama, managing their funds and The Rustic Lodge, an event rental site located on the Tennessee river at Redstone Arsenal. I retired from this position in 2005.

I continued preparing taxes, managing local tax offices, and teaching Basic and Advanced classes as a Senior Tax Professional and Master Instructor until my retirement after 35 years with the company. My expertise in tax law is personal taxes, Clergy, Rental, Small businesses, Farms, Foreign Earned Income, and Foreign Taxation. I love all things taxes and am not surprised that I’m restarting my career after a 2-year break to care for my mom. I would love to help you with any of your tax concerns and planning. 

I have two children who graduated from Hazel Green High School. Ten grandchildren who keep me busy with lots of sports and birthdays. Five cats that keep me hopping.  I am a widow of Steve who gave me the desire to travel and the love of my life.  We have Auburn Graduates, War Eagle, and Alabama Graduates, Roll Tide, and are a house divided. 

I love to travel and love just about every sport but my greatest love is my God whom without Him none of my life would be possible.  I love to be in Church singing in the choir and leading Bible Studies.

I am so happy to be a part of the Perrin Tax and Accounting team and look forward to helping you with all your tax and planning needs.
