Visor is a consumer focused FinTech startup building an online personal tax advisory product. Our clients get a dedicated tax advisor that guides them through complicated tax situations and advises in making optimal financial decisions throughout the year (such as buying a home or selling stock).

We analyze client’s financial data, identifying trends and patterns and combine it with tax expert knowledge. Unlike TurboTax, Visor is a comprehensive tool that not only helps users file their taxes, but actually provides advice and guidance throughout the year on our user's financial portfolio.
