As a young father at just 21 years of age, Mario found himself endrudged with the day to day 9-to-5 working lifestyle but knew the man he faced in the mirror was longing to break free of the "JOB" and become a successful entrepreneur.
After many ups and downs with entrepreneurship in restaurants and technology, Mario Costanz found himself in a new industry sector. Taking his first tax class was just the beginning of what would turn out to be one of the most lucrative, inspirational, and disruptive business models the tax industry has seen to date.
After finding early success as an independent tax office owner, Mario got involved with franchising and expanded to 99 offices across the country. At that point in time, Mario realized that the way tax preparation was being done was antiquated and not efficient. He envisioned a better, more secure, and convenient CPA filing experience for consumers that is now known as Happy Tax.
In 2014, Mario sold off his 99 brick and mortar tax offices and invested his payoff to create Happy Tax. Since its inception, Happy Tax has gone from a breakthrough idea, to an award winning opportunity for entrepreneurs and professionals to own a tax business without the typical startup overhead or tax management requirements.
Happy Tax has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Franchise Times, and Accounting Today as as a fast growing innovator in the tax industry.
As a longtime avid blockchain and cryptocurrency enthusiast, Mario saw a need for quality tax preparation in the crypto trading community and launched CryptoTaxPrep.com as a division of Happy Tax which has now positioned itself as the industry leader in cryptocurrency tax preparation.
Following the successful launch of CryptoTaxPrep.com, Mario launched Crypto Tax Academy, the industry leader in cryptocurrency taxation training and designation for tax and accounting professional providing in-depth self-study courses for professionals of all levels looking to advance their knowledge in the fast-growing cryptocurrency space.
