I have over a decade of experience in public accounting, and have had the pleasure of being exposed to most of what public accounting has to offer. My experience has ranged from assurance work to tax compliance to consulting.
Somewhere along the way I found my passion - closely held (aka small) businesses. This practice area has allowed me the opportunity to develop meaningful professional relationships, not just a "vendor" status.
So my focus has been developing the skills needed to best serve these clients. Which is why I am well versed in corporate, partnership and individual taxation, as well as payroll, state, local and various other tax issues. I also have been able to leverage my financial accounting and QuickBooks experience in order to assist clients with various accounting issues.
My passion for business (I am also part owner in AcademyLion, Inc., www.academylion.com and Spas with Stephanie, www.spawithstephanie.com) and the pride I take in being a CPA, show through both in the quality of my work and my commitment to my clients.
My mission is to help clients maintain financial viability in the present, while taking a proactive approach to achieve future goals. This requires open communication to reach an understanding of my clients' needs through research and sound analysis. James Hartman PA is dedicated to meeting these goals with high standards of excellence and professionalism.
My dedication to hard work has earned the respect of the business and financial community in and around the area. I believe this to be a direct derivative of my firm's talent and responsiveness. Whether you are a current or prospective client, rest assured that individuals and businesses who choose James Hartman PA receive competent and timely advice.
