Hoover Financial Services offers more than tax prep


There’s a new advisor in town — as Hoover Financial Services opened its doors to the public, offering more than three decades of experience. In November, David Hoover opened his second financial services office in Millville.

“I opened my own practice very early on,” said Hoover. “While I was going to college, I had a friendship with an older gentleman in the community, and he was an income tax preparer. He didn’t do any of the other services that I now provide, but he did income taxes and I was interested in that. I assisted him with his tax preparation, and that’s how I got started.”

Hoover graduated from Elizabethtown College with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and has had his own business for 31 years.

“I enjoy meeting different people and, specifically regarding income taxes, I enjoy it because no two tax returns are exactly the same. Regardless of how difficult or how simple they might be, there’s no two that are the same. That’s what keeps it interesting to me.”

Hoover splits his time between his offices in Millville and Pennsylvania but plans to eventually relocate permanently to the Delaware coast area.

“My wife and my family, we’ve been coming down to the Bethany Beach area since 1993, and we’ve had a second home down here since then. We just enjoy the area and we’re thinking that maybe someday we either want to retire, or if we don’t retire, relocate to this area. So I would like to build a business and clientele now.”

Hoover Financial Services offers income tax preparation, accounting services, business services and payroll services, and also offers investments through the Principle Financial Group.

“I think my pricing is very competitive. I think we offer more personal service than some other companies that provide these services, as well as my 30-plus years of experience in tax preparation and in the other services that I offer.”

Hoover said that his business startup services are frequently requested and used.

“That’s one thing I do quite a bit of in the office,” he said. “Someone comes together, three people want to form a corporation or an LLC, I do the registrations and everything for them so that they don’t have to be concerned about, ‘Do we have everything filed?’ ‘Did we do everything we were supposed to do?’”

Hoover said that, since opening the Millville office, the business has been well-received and been supported greatly by the Bethany-Fenwick Chamber of Commerce. He added that he hopes to become a part of the community for years to come.

“I hope that my business becomes an integral part of the area, and I hope to be here many years to come. I’m not looking to retire anytime soon.”

Hoover Financial Services is located at 32828 Reba Road, on the corner of Central Avenue and Cedar Road in Millville. For more information call (302) 616-1037 or email hfswh@comcast.net.
