How I can help you

I can evaluate your financial, accounting  and tax compliance requirements for your start up or existing business.  I can discuss the entity selection options and the unique tax and recordkeeping characteristics of each.  I can also help you explore various ways to evaluate your business performance through manual or automated methods with business software and  have experience with the on- line and desk top versions of Quickbooks.

As a certified public accountant, I have over  40 years of experience in corporate and public accounting  and operated a CPA practice for 25 of those years.  I have worked in all areas of financial management and accounting including financial statement preparation and analysis. I have also spent a large portion of my career in tax planning and commercial tax preparation for all types business entities.

I currently hold membership  in the Association of Practicing CPA's,  Maryland Association of CPA's,  American Institute of CPA's.
