In 1986, Al founded Barbour Tax and Financial Services. The mission of Barbour Tax and Financial Services is to help retirees and soon-to-be retirees achieve their financial dreams through low risk investments, comprehensive financial planning, and tax minimization strategies. Financial planning is more than having
a great stock or bond, it’s more than having your money locked away in a low interest rate CD. A sound financial plan is one that helps you achieve your financial goals while accounting for all aspects of life; including taxes, Social Security, Medicare, and Risk Management—including planning for the unexpected and the inevitable.

Our holistic approach looks at all aspects of our clients’ lives and takes in to account not only the hard cold logic of finance, but the human aspects of what it’ll take to give our clients peace of mind.

Just as every person is unique so is every financial strategy. Our office lives by Colossians 3:23, “ Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart as if working for the Lord.”

Al teaches Sunday School to seniors and participates in mission trips to the Navajo Indian Reservation in New Mexico. As a heart transplant recipient, he volunteers with the North Carolina Organ Donor Association, speaking from personal experience about the impact of this life-changing gift. Al and his wife Susan enjoy traveling, working in their yard and spending time together.
