About Us
In 1969, Trudy Durant combined her passion for the theatre and her experience with tax accounting to form her own firm. As one of the first woman-owned tax service firms specializing in this industry, her company quickly grew. Trudy established a staff of devoted tax and accounting professionals who recognize and serve the clients' needs, as she does. Today, Trudy C. Durant and Associates LLC has over 20 qualified professionals who provide the highest quality personal service to our clients, year after year. In addition to interviewing clients at our multiple locations, our staff also travels to various tour sites to accommodate our clients’ needs. We require continuing education of our staff in order to accommodate the complex changes in federal and state tax laws. This is especially important because the nature of our business involves filing tax returns in all 50 states as well as in multiple cities. We are available to our clients all year to answer tax questions and consult on the tax impact of business decisions. While our client base has increased substantially, the pride in individual service remains the same as always.
Our Mission
Trudy C. Durant and Associates LLC has earned its distinguished reputation through our unique ability to create valuable and lasting working relationships with our clients. For over 35 years we have been committed to providing the highest level of professional services to our individual and business clients in the theatrical community and that goal continues today.

Trudy began her career in taxation over 35 years ago. Her connections to the entertainment industry and her personal interest in the theatre led her to this specialization. Recognizing the growing need for tax services for entertainment professionals, she started her own firm. Trudy has always and continues to exceed her clients' expectations. She draws on the knowledge and experience gained from working in larger accounting firms and her continuing education. Although the client base has increased substantially, her commitment to personalized service remains unchanged.

As the managing partner of a firm that has grown as fast as the entertainment industry itself, Trudy expanded the company’s services to include other facets of accounting in addition to tax preparation. While accepting clients outside of entertainment, her name is still synonymous with taxes and accounting for the individuals and corporations in the performing arts. Trudy is also active in fund-raising for theatre related causes as well as in women’s organizations and promoting women in business.
