Baldea Enterprises, LLC is proud to announce that coming soon to Van Wert will be Flagship Tax Center and Flagship Senior Supplemental Solutions to be located at 114 W. Main St. With an IRS Tax Code complex enough to make even the most educated among us cry trying to do our taxes, and a Medicare Supplement booklet boring enough to put an insomniac to sleep, Flagship is here to make your life a little easier.

The owner and resident of Van Wert, Michael Baldea, is well versed in the preparation of Federal, State, local, and school district tax returns having worked most recently for Liberty Tax Service in Lima, Ohio. He prepares taxes for individuals, partnerships, and small businesses and keeps himself up-to-date on all the tax laws that affect your life. Included with all yearly returns will be free E-file with the IRS and the State of Ohio. When tax season is here, be sure to look for Uncle Sam strolling down Main Street. He'll direct you right to the front door.

Michael is new to the insurance industry, but has completed extensive training in the rules and regulations of Medigap Supplemental Insurance and Medicare Advantage. With baby-boomers now reaching 65 years young by as many as 8,000 people per day in the USA, the demand for supplemental insurance is skyrocketing. Having a specialist offering a wide variety of coverage's from some of the nation's top Insurance Companies and being available to sit down and explain the value of Medicare Supplemental Insurance will be a welcome addition to the Van Wert community.

The target date for opening the office is Nov. 1, just in time to be available for the open enrollment period for Medicare Advantage and Part D drug coverage. Please stop in, have a cup of coffee, and see what Flagship can do for you and to wish Michael well in his new start-up business.
