Hello, and welcome to my website.

Call me Mike.

Mike McGinnis

And the pandemic continues. It has materially affected how I interact with clients, and which clients I am able to meet with in person. Looks like life is going to stay this way for a while.

I am grateful to all of my clients who went remote with me and made it easy to get through the pre-vaccination era without meeting face to face with anyone. I have resumed some client meetings, as sometimes in-person interaction is more effective, but that's limited to those who are vaccinated and happy to wear a mask for the meeting. Things didn't really change with my clients who live in other cities, other states, and other countries. Now it's all pretty much back to normal. It's just the new normal.

I'm a Certified Public Accountant with broad experience in business taxation, finance and management. Most of my clients are small businesses. My practice serves businesses incorporated as either S Corporations, C Corporations, Schedule C's (self-employed reporting on the 1040 form), or as LLC's or partnerships. Of course, no CPA's client roster is complete without a few Trusts and Not for Profit entities.

I also serve many clients who only need individual tax return preparation. During the "Marriage Wars" I developed a long roster of same sex couples as tax clients. Whatever someone's domestic status, there are many important tax matters people face regardless of whether they are single, married, Registered Domestic Partners, or just plain living together.

I started this practice back in 2001 and it's been a fun ride. It's a substantially "full" practice, but I always have room for another few clients. I like my clients. Not just because they pay me. Not a lot of turnover. I land a few new ones each year. I lose a small handful each year, as that's just the nature of business. It's organic.

Mike McGinnis CPA Office

My CPA practice was built based on the belief that high quality accounting and tax services, using state-of-the-art software, doesn't have to cost a fortune. We assist our business clients, most of whom are on QuickBooks, to accurately manage their own accounting, allowing them accurate and timely financial information about their businesses at minimum cost. I care deeply about the tax strategy and profitability of my clients. Marginal tax rates are key. My success is dependent upon your success.

I offer a full range of tax services and bill my clients at a competitive hourly rate, not by schedules on the return or by using "value billing." Billing clients by the schedule or using "value billing," a practice employed by some of my competitors, results in padded invoices and can add hundreds of dollars to the cost of preparing your tax returns, and sometimes more.

Whether you're a corporation, partnership, LLC, LLP, or an individual with a complex return, I'd like to help minimize your taxes at a fair price. I invite you to take a look around my website and learn more about my practice. If you´re looking for a smart CPA who bills their clients fairly, don´t take my word for it, visit my client testimonials page. Then give me a call and let´s talk.
