How We Started

It has been a long road and we know that we still have a long way to go. We started in the Tax Industry in February 2011 as Ocean State Tax & Financial Service Center, originally as a self-employed entrepreneur business; and later, in 2018, we incorporated in the state of Rhode Island as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) under “Bratini & Associates Enterprises LLC”. In the same year, our business also adopted a fictitious name known by the public as “Ocean State Tax & Business & Service Center” and now, “Bratini Tax Relief”.

Bratini & Associates Enterprises LLC is a professional firm specialized in Tax Resolution and Representation before the IRS and state taxing authorities, as well as Tax Preparation.

Because we emphasize quality and personal service to our clients, our motto are to provide the highest level of competence and service to the community. Moreover, our philosophy is to build long-term relationships with our clients, as they have been the most important pieces of the firm since its inception, not just client contacts.
