ccording to Ben Franklin, nothing is certain but death and taxes. Luckily, there are people who can help us with our taxes.


L.L. Foster, CPA - Bella Vista Tax Preparer - has been nominated for Best Accounting Firm and Best Tax Services for 2018’s Best of Northwest Arkansas contest. After a conversation with the kind-hearted Laura L. Foster, the firm’s namesake, it was easy to tell she couldn’t be happier about it.

“It feels wonderful,” she says of her potential to win the awards.  “I’m elated that somebody nominated me! I feel wanted,” she laughs. “I love the people out here, they’re just fantastic.”
Foster has been working in Bella Vista for 25 years and has really found her niche helping people with their taxes and finances.

During our interview, she even managed to help me with my taxes! She’s a natural conversationalist and is pleasant and easy to talk to. Her years of experience and her deep understanding of the financial realm come across in the most useful and personal ways.
When asked what she enjoys most about her work, Foster replies, “I enjoy helping people. I love sitting and talking with them one on one.”

She’s had people come in, thinking they were there for one thing; and, after a few minutes of good conversation, she’ll help them realize opportunities they didn’t even know they had. Happily guiding her clients through different financial strategies, Foster leads them to discover new ways to save money.  

Praised online as both highly knowledgeable and dependable, Foster gets most of her business via word-of-mouth advertising. Whether they’re starting a business, selling some property, figuring out a mortgage, dealing with a death, hiring, firing, or retiring: people trust Laura Foster with their financial lives; and for many, that’s as real as it gets.

“They’re from all walks of life,” she tells me of her Bella Vista clients and friends. “All the people out here are a blessing for me.”
