Income Tax Service- Ken and Aaron Shirk are Enrolled Agents, licensed by the US Treasury Department to represent clients before the IRS. Their practice is limited to individuals, sole proprietor businesses and churches. Home based businesses and rental properties are very common among their clientele.  

Payroll Processing- At Sonrise their niche is the employer with a small number of employees- many of their clients have only 1 or 2 on payroll. They also cater to the church market, serving churches in many states. Full computerized, they are able to provide direct-deposit of paychecks and customized reports to fill any need. They also welcome the opportunity to prepare quarterly and year-end reports for those firms that prepare their own payroll.

Notary, Messenger & Licensing- If you need notary, motor vehicles or licensing they can handle it. Their office is on-line with PennDOT through high speed internet connection and they can provide many documents on the spot. No more pink slips, sticker on the back window or temporary renewal cards- you leave their office with the permanent document.  They Deal with Penndot so you Don't Have To!



Sonrise limits its tax preparation services to individuals, sole proprietor businesses and non-profit organizations.  Sonrise is committed to utilizing technology in various ways to enhance our ability to serve our clients’ needs and therefore all eligible tax returns are filed electronically at no added cost to the taxpayer.  Preparation fees are based on the complexity of the return.  Our fee for short form with only W-2 income starts at $90.  This includes federal, state and local tax preparation with electronic filing for federal and state at no additional charge.  Our average fee for all returns (business, rental, farm, investment) is around $300.  Sonrise has succeeded in combining the efficiencies of a larger clientele with the friendliness and warmth of a family business.  Every effort is made to keep the same tax preparer with a client year after year to promote the strengthening of the person-to-person bond.  We remember YOU – not your Social Security Number!

Sonrise has a wealth of experience in preparing returns for individuals that operate home businesses (including day-care operations), rental property owners, truck drivers and tradesmen. Ken Shirk is nationally recognized for his expertise in preparing clergy tax returns and has clergy clients on 5 continents and in 30 states. Sonrise can assist in filing tax returns for residents, part-year residents and non residents of all 50 states.

Their professional staff at Sonrise spends untold hours each year maintaining and expanding our knowledge and skills in tax preparation and tax planning. In-house training is supplemented by seminars conducted by various trade associations and government agencies. In addition to a Written Guarantee, the ultimate assurance we give you is that EVERY tax return is personally reviewed by Ken or Aaron before the Gold Approval Seal is applied and the return is allowed to be given to the client.


SONRISE caters to the payroll needs of employers with a very small number of employees. Many of our payroll clients have only 1-4 employees. Over half of our payroll work is done for churches. Since we understand the complexity and unusual procedures involved when processing payroll for members of the clergy, churches throughout Pennsylvania, as well as other states, rely on us for their payroll needs. We are fully computerized and have the capability of generating check stock in our office that complies with current banking regulations. This allows us to respond instantly to changes in bank accounts, bank mergers, etc.  

Electronic filing and direct deposit are among the services we offer. We take pride in our ability to mesh our services into your particular circumstances at a price that is quite competitive and very affordable, even for the smallest of enterprises. Most important of all, when you need us, we’re here to meet your needs promptly, efficiently, and without voice mailboxes! At Sonrise they’re big enough to meet your needs, but small enough to value every client and know your situation personally!


The Ninth Street office of Sonrise Tags and Tax is your one-stop-shop for all your licensing and notary needs. We are a bonded messenger service and Decentralized Service Agent for PennDOT. We are also authorized to do work for the PA Fish & Boat Commission and the PA Department of Conservation & Natural Resources. New and renewal registrations can be issued instantly in most situations, eliminating the need for temporary tags and “pink slips”. Sonrise is also registered as a closing agent with several signing services and we handle loan closings for a variety of lenders.

Church and Clergy Matters

A significant aspect of their business is providing tax preparation services for members of the clergy and payroll services for churches and para-church ministries. We also provide financial reviews for churches and evaluate church procedures and policies for the collection, handling and disbursement of funds. Seminars and workshops are available to churches and we stand ready to assist in the design of clergy compensation packages. Their services are generally available regardless of location – they have clients on five continents and in 30 states – thanks to modern technology and the internet.

Their fees for clergy tax preparation vary according to the complexity of the return, but most would fall in the $300 to $500 range. Payroll preparation for a church with a staff of 4 or less would generally cost $1,000-$1,200 per year. Please contact us for a customized proposal.
