"Nothing is certain except death and taxes." -Benjamin Franklin
Licensing and Education
A CPA (Certified Public Accountant) is a certification issued by the state. To become a CPA you must meet educational, ethical, and experience requirements; in addition to passing the Uniform CPA Examination. To maintain a CPA license, each CPA must keep up with all current Accounting and Taxation issues and by completing required continuing education.
Stability and Reliability
Practicing CPA’s can be relied on year after year and our doors are always open. While some tax services close their doors from May through December, our offices remain open throughout the year to assist you with any tax or accounting needs. A CPA can offer more than just tax services; they also offer tax planning, general accounting information, answers to your tax questions, and assistance with working with tax collection agencies (IRS, State, Local).
Familiarity and Record Retention
CPAs build a long lasting relationship with clients; this allows them to better understand the client’s needs and their unique tax situation. A CPA also retains past records for each client, like a physician retains records for a patient. These records are valuable for providing year over year comparability and historical reference.
