Why a CPA?
A CPA, or certified public accountant, is licensed by a state authority to
practice public accounting. CPAs are distinguished from other accountants
by stringent licensing requirements. CPAs take
continuing professional education annually to retain their professional
licenses to practice and to “stay on top of their game”. The Tax laws
in Washington, D.C. and Harrisburg change frequently. Furthermore, CPAs are
governed by a Code of Professional Conduct - one of the most exacting of any
profession - which stresses independence, integrity, objectivity, technical
competence and adherence to professional standards. This Code emphasizes the
CPA's commitment to serving and protecting the public interest.
