I was very young when I was born, and have been growing older ever since. My goal is to continue this process for as long as possible.
To that end, I am a sole practitioner CPA in the field of tax preparation and planning, with over 30 years of experience in public accounting, consulting and taxpayer representation.
In addition to years of experience in individual, corporate, partnership, estate, gift and trust taxation, I also have extensive experience in accounting software implementation and support. I am a member of the Sage (formerly Peachtree) Accountant's Network and a Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor.
My clients include actors, artists, consultants, retirees, educators, remodelling contractors, law firms, clergy, real estate investment & rental, seafood processing, communications, medical and sales professionals, & other service businesses. I also specialize in divorce and separation tax issues.
I have conducted accounting, finance & tax seminars for various groups, written for industry publications, and have taught accounting and computer-related courses.
And in my younger days, I've worked about every possible job you can think of, from Advertising copywriter to X-ray assistant.
All of which means I have the professional qualifications and hands-on work experience to understand your concerns, and the willingness to "go the extra mile" for you. I never outsource or "farm out" anything - and except for secure off-site data backups, your information never leaves my office.
I do the work myself, because "the devil is in the details" - that's where the perils and opportunities lurk.
