Sonrise TagsAndTax had its formal beginning back in 1973 when Ken first began to prepare income tax returns for a few friends and co-workers at his home in the quaint Lebanon County hamlet of Mt. Zion. That "moon-lighting" continued until 1988, the year Ken began devoting his full time to the growing enterprise. Payroll and financial planning services were added to the menu in '88 and Notary services soon followed. With the business showing steady growth through the '90s, son Aaron began to assume various responsibilities with the firm. After high school graduation in 1997, Aaron became a full-time employee and in 2000 joined his parents as an owner of the firm. A second office, located in the City of Lebanon and managed by Aaron, was opened in January 2001.

The opening of the Lebanon City office enabled the Shirks to greatly expand the range of notary related services and gave the well-established firm a fresh exposure in the business center of the Lebanon Valley. Aiming to be recognized as the premier service of its kind in the area, each member of the Sonrise team is carefully chosen and trained to carry-on the tradition of friendly service in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Due to continued growth at the Ninth Street location, a major expansion was undertaken in 2007 which nearly doubled the size of the facility. The additional space allows the notary portion of the business to have its own quarters and affords more room and privacy for the income tax activity.
