Meet Tanya!

Tanya Peterson is a virtual bookkeeper as well as the founder and owner of Balanced to a T Bookkeeping. She enjoys helping any variety of entrepreneurs expand their business and grow their wealth by offering organized, accurate, up-to-date bookkeeping and payroll services. Tanya earned her Quickbooks Pro-Advisor in February of 2019 and is working towards her Quickbooks Advanced certification. She is also certified with Gusto Payroll software and Avalara sales tax software.

Her mission is to collaborate with clients to diagnose the state of their finances and develop a strategy to ensure long term financial success for their businesses. With that comes her goal to give you peace of mind knowing that your businesses finances are being effectively managed. Whatever your business needs to stay on track financially, we will accomplish it.

Tanya’s hometown is Lee’s Summit, MO since 1985. After graduating from the original Lee’s Summit High in 1991, she became rooted in the community that she admires. Making memories with family, being outdoors and working number games is what she would rather be doing, but assisting others in need is also fulfilling. After working in the healthcare industry for 20 plus years she was ready for a career change, but wants to continue to help others. So she became a bean counter and wants you to succeed. So focus on growing your business, trust the bookkeeping to us.



I thoroughly enjoy working with Tanya! She does our bookkeeping for our business and it has taken the stress off of me so I can attend to other tasks! She is very knowledgeable in accounting and managing books to keep them accurate.

I was ready to hire my first employee, but had no idea how to run a payroll. I reached out to Tanya and she took over the payroll & bookkeeping. She made the process very easy and quick. She took a big weight off my shoulders, now I have more time to focus on my painting & holiday light company.

We have struggled for years trying to find a firm who could keep OUR Quickbooks account current. Finding Balance to a T was a breath of fresh air. Finally, someone who would conduct a COMPLETE and thorough reconciliation of our books. In 6 six of business, we've never had this within our own Quickbooks account. Thank you Tanya for everything you do for us!

What other benefits do you get?

In addition to more time, peace of mind and the ability to plan your financial life, here are some other great benefits...

  • Privacy and confidentiality: Privacy and confidentiality are of utmost concern for professionals in the financial world. We know how to keep your information safe but an internal employee may not have the same high ethical standards. Or you may not want your staff to have access to all of your financial information.
  • Lower Payroll Costs: Having an outsourced financial team lowers your payroll costs significantly because you won't have to hire for these positions thus avoiding wages, payroll taxes and other fringe benefit costs.
  • Red Carpet Service: At tax time, those that are organized and ready to roll, get the red carpet treatment...while small businesses that are disorganized and unprepared get put on extension.

Unlimited email and text support is also included.
