Latinos Tax and Accounting Center


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — On Sept. 22, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, abc27 visited a company that started as a man helping his friends and features an incredible story.

Cesar Muñoz came to the United States, New York initially, from the Dominican Republic in 1978. Although Muñoz didn’t have much, he worked hard and became a quintessential immigrant success story.

“I had a few restaurants,” Muñoz said, but he didn’t know how to file important paperwork or taxes. “I see no one has helped me with accounting or tax.”

During his trip, Muñoz moved to York, Pennsylvania. After learning essential business skills he lacked, Muñoz decided to help others by teaching.

“I see my community needs someone who can teach them how to do business,” Muñoz said.

His teaching quickly turned into a business.

The Latino Tax and Accounting Center in York, owned by Muñoz, helps residents understand important documents.

“We do notary, we do translation because they’re from another country, and they’re trying to do immigration paperwork,” Muñoz said.
