We Help Businesses Thrive with Accounting Services

Proactive Accountant


"Valerie and the team at Emerald are great! I rate their tax preparation service and communication five star. I definitely recommend Emerald for tax and financial planning needs."

-- Marie O.

"I have been a customer since 1990.  I continue to be impressed by their personal service, great follow up, and personal attention. Watching Valerie and Christy grow this business has also impressed me. Their success is a testimony to the quality of service and support they bring to their clients."

-- Carol K.

"Your entire team has given nothing less than exceptional service to me and my company over the past several years. I finally feel like I've found a tax accountant that's proactive on by behalf."

-- Cheryl G.

"We’ve been using Christy at Emerald for over 2 years and couldn’t be happier! I have a business so it can be very involved with the ever changing tax laws etc. I am without a doubt, very confident in their understanding of what the new laws mean and how it affects us from a business and a personal standpoint. Finally no more sleepless nights!"
-- Misty S.

"Due to lack of attention by my previous accountant to my taxes, I was forced to find another accountant. I thought the transition was going to be awkward and arduous, but it was practically seamless. Christy took care of making sure all of my quarterly taxes were done, the appropriate forms were completed and turned in to meet the deadlines, etc. Absolutely nothing fell through the cracks. They gave me very helpful advice on how to structure my business to create tax shelters and protect my money.  Christy evaluates my tax situation on a quarterly basis (per our agreement) and makes recommendations throughout the year so there are no surprises lurking when it's time to pay the IRS man. She has been very detail oriented and I appreciate all she has done to help me achieve my financial goals. She is part of my wealth building team and I am thankful to have her!"
