Accounting Solutions for Businesses.

The Problem: Business owners aren't getting timely, accurate, and actionable data from their financial statements. Most accounting firms and bookkeepers don't tailor your books to provide meaningful data and don't get the work done on time. This causes you to run your business blindly, costing you untold amounts in lost profits. This is just plain wrong. We believe you deserve a better small business accounting firm.

Businesses in all industries

Every business is unique. When it comes to tax laws and creating insightful accounting, this couldn't be more true. We serve a wide array of industries and have deep specialization in the following...

Tax Services for People.

The Problem: Taxpayers are not getting the service they need from their tax professional. Most CPA firms rush through their clients' tax returns, do not adequately explain the return, and do not provide recommendations on how to reduce taxes. Further, they're mostly unavailable or unhelpful outside of tax season. This is also plain wrong. We believe you deserve a proactive, strategic advisor for your tax situation.

Tax Services for Your Situation

Just because you know how to do a tax return doesn't mean you know how to do it right, nor maximize the returns when things get complicated. Our Dark Horse CPAs can help you strategically navigate the following areas, among many others...

Suzi Drennen is the most knowledgeable, conscientious, and responsive CPA I have ever known—which is why I’ve stayed with her for more than 10 years. She is honest, has always gotten back to me quickly even at the height of tax season, and has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. The icing on the cake is that Suzi’s easy to work with and on top of that, a great person! She and her firm are tops!
