Welcome to Macanta, Your Friend in the Tax Business. Macanta is a Gaelic word meaning "one who takes care of others".  At Macanta, we take that very seriously. The principal of the firm, Kathryn M. Keane, EA,  leads a dedicated team focused on the most important part of our day--you, our client. There are many different ways to use the services here. You can:
