New businesses set up in TC

TRAVERSE CITY — A tax firm and a restoration business each will expand services into the Traverse City area.

Lansing-based Lothamer, a tax resolution firm, opened a new outlet recently at 236 E. Front St. The firm is seeking to grow its client base throughout the Grand Traverse region, said Amy Lothamer, vice president of marketing.

“Our goal is to expand the Lothamer brand throughout Michigan and provide residents solutions to their tax problems,” Lothamer said.

Lothamer said the company serves both small businesses and the individual. Services offered include unfiled tax returns, offer in compromise, back taxes, levy taxes and debt settlement.

Anytime Restoration Services, based in Madison Heights, also is opening a new outlet in the region. The company performs cleanup and restoration services to mitigate damage from mold, fire, and flooding. They also remove toxins and smoke odors from homes.

Company owner Jerry Shovan said he wanted to open an office in Traverse City in part because of the community’s reputation throughout the state as a vibrant area. He also said northern Michigan’s wild weather means the company’s services will be needed.

“Obviously Traverse City is a growing area,” Shovan said. “The population is sophisticated and we see a lot of need — we get a lot of requests for customers up there. We thought it would be a great opportunity.”

The company is looking for commercial space in Traverse City. An employee, Jon Curtiss, already is located in the Kingsley area and is responding to requests for service.
