Bellingham, WA
tax accountant
bookkeeping
“I've lived in WA, CA, and TX and they've done my books in each state without problems, and my CPA has done my taxes while living there too (thankfully, there's no income taxes in WA or TX, so nothing to do there, otherwise I might have had to find someone else for taxes in those years). Once we got setup, he's assigned someone specific to take over but they're awesome and the transition was seamless. Didn't even notice really. Please tell him I sent you. I get nothing from it, but I'd like him to know that I'm helping him out. He's done great work and I want him to know it through referrals if you go with him.” — Nate Ritter (https://roomsteals.com/)

tax accountant
attorney
“We're a complicated multinational thing. It's like $10-15k minimum per engagement with them but they're very worth it for us. they did our whole international structuring in one go and provide basically free unlimited phone support for it... They're a large firm with divisions everywhere. if you want something quick and cheap they would not be the right people, but if it's a complicated setup / involves international tax law and understanding long-term requirements then the people we use would be great”
Eric Wexler
tax accountant
“Extremely quick + professional.”
Jeff Dowd
tax accountant
“Knows Illinois tax law. Very responsive, affordable, gets my taxes done fast when I procrastinate, collaborative”
FD Thompson
Oklahoma City
tax accountant
John Marroquin
Dulin Hassett (national, virtual CPA firm that serves many small- to mid-sized US businesses; I’ve worked with John on another client matter and he was responsive and competent on all tax matters; if all you need is tax return prep for now, and you want to keep costs as low as possible, he or Ryan Rocha would be a good fit. Note: I don’t believe John may be able to help with as many scenarios, such as seed/series-A investment rounds or international tax matters, but he can comment on that further.)
USA
tax accountant
Yelena Epova, CPA
APRIO (one of the largest accounting firms in the world; an excellent partner for when your company begins its international projects or if you need to form an investment fund off-shore for a group of international investors, as needed; she won’t be the one doing your taxes, but her team mate would be and they also can handle the R&D Tax credit opportunities and other domestic credits or financings; more expensive, but possibly indispensable later)
Atlanta, GA
tax accountant
RYAN ROCHA
Rocha & Company PC (small to mid-sized accounting firm that can help with bookkeeping and tax returns, R&D tax credits, fundraises).
Rockville, MD
tax accountant
“His fees are reasonable and he is entrepreneurial himself, and Ryan Rocha was the accountant for my first company 18 years ago.”
RICHARD YELTON
Windham Brannon (mid-sized accounting firm that can help with tax returns to R&D Tax credits to venture capital fundraises to acquisitions to SBA/bank financings to IPO)
Atlanta, GA
