Petz Enterprises, LLC was first formed by Leroy and Glenna Sue Petz in 1964. In the early days of the company, the generations-old family sold a paper-based accounting system specifically designed for farmers. In 1974 the family business was formally incorporated in California. Petz Enterprises was one of the original distributors of Peachtree Accounting systems during the 1970's. As time went on, the company expanded into being a systems value-added reseller (VAR) for a variety of accounting applications. Having developed a magnetic media filing application for Forms W-2, the company was invited to an IRS meeting in Sacramento, CA to discuss the development of an electronic filing application for individual 1040 forms.
In 1989 the company launched CrossLink® professional tax preparation software with 35 customers as an add-on to tax software programs that did not support electronic filing, bank products, or other tax related financial products. CrossLink was released in 1994 as a fully developed tax preparation software built around electronic — rather than paper — tax filings.
Since CrossLink’s release, Petz Enterprises has built a loyal following of professional tax preparation clients delivered by a balance of technology and personalized service. As a “high-touch” company that customizes tax preparation software solutions for high-volume tax businesses, Petz Enterprises is known for extremely high product and service standards and a focus on customer feedback that enables the deployment of client-inspired software enhancements and features. Today, the CrossLink suite of professional tax software products is noted for its early delivery, high level of accuracy, and program speed.
The CrossLink Suite of professional tax software products for professional tax preparers includes CrossLink 1040 for desktop use, CrossLink Multi-Site Online, a 100% web-based online professional tax software solution for multi-site operations and Service Bureaus, and CrossLink Business for customers who require a software solution that includes support for Federal and State business tax- returns.
In the fall of 2008, Petz Enterprises expanded operations with a new office located in Bellevue, WA. Petz Enterprises then expanded further in the summer of 2010, opening a new office located in Rome, GA. To support further growth on the East Coast, Petz Enterprises opened an office in Orlando, FL in March of 2015. These expansions delivered on the long-term needs of CrossLink customers for talent, operational expertise, and data center facilities.
Today, Petz Enterprises and the CrossLink Team provide nationwide coverage to better serve their customers.
