Finding a local tax professional well versed in The Wealthy Accountant philosophy can seem impossible. Many tax pros from around the nation have adopted the tax policies I encourage and the list of these incredible tax people are listed below.
You are not limited to a tax professional in your state. Many on this list handle taxes for multiple states and virtually every accounting firm today has infrastructure in place to securely transfer files via the internet.
These tax professionals are the best of the best. They are here because they train endlessly, including following this blog. Many also reside in private Facebook groups where they have an army of other tax pros to bounce ideas with on difficult issues.
Always be respectful. Allow these professionals to review your situation before requesting a quote. (Prescription before diagnosis is malpractice.)
If you know of an awesome tax professional be sure to point them here. This listing is free to the tax pro and visitors/readers alike. Sharing this page will help our community grow.

Bio: I began working at a large regional firm and realized I had a heart for client interaction. I moved to a smaller firm to allow for more facetime and immediately recognized a need for more internal reporting and education for my clients but no one was offering that level of service, so I suggested we do it at the firm. The request was not met with enthusiasm by the firm I was at, who felt tax was the only identity they were comfortable with. So I moved out on my own and began to realize my dream.
