A Little About Me

John D. McGowan, P.C. was established in 1995 and is a local certified public accounting firm that is dedicated to providing its clients with high quality professional services which are tailored to the unique needs of each client. I have a diversified background of experience and specialization.   My clients and previous experience include a variety of industries, including waste and waste removal, contractors, builders, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, professional firms, real estate developers, insurance agencies and a number of other service firms. All business and personal tax returns are prepared on my in-house system as well as all other general ledger, financial statement, fixed asset and other financial functions.

In 1995, my firm joined the Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.   As a requirement of membership, a peer review of its members accounting and audit practice must be performed every three years. I successfully completed all peer reviews which commenced in January 1998 and received an unqualified opinion in every instance.

In order to maintain my high quality of service to clients I am constantly updating my knowledge in all areas of professional development, including accounting and auditing, taxation, and management advisory services. This is done through continuing professional education, industry group memberships, publications, and other forms of education.

I believe that my major strength is my dedication to client service.  My dedication is shown by the fact that I am actively involved with each engagement. This personal attention has been very much appreciated by my clients and has been responsible for the increase in business that I have experienced over the years.

I maintain a broad experience in all facets of federal, state and local taxation. This expertise is not only in the area of corporate and partnership taxation, but extends to an excellent knowledge of the taxation of individuals.  My firm can be relied on to have the necessary expertise to handle any tax situations that my clients might encounter, such as to maintain on-going corporate, partnership, and individual tax planning.
