We began working with Cowan, Epperson & Associates, P.C. in August 2013, beginning with the purchase of our first business. Storm has guided us through our acquisitions, planning and day to day operations; from Quickbooks, to corporate structure, to payroll, taxes, insurance and employment issues. I could go on and on. Her advice and guidance throughout the years has helped our business grow and prosper. My questions are always answered promptly and she goes out of her way to make sure I fully understand the information she provides. She truly has been an invaluable asset to our small business.
It has been a pleasure to work with the entire CEA staff. Always friendly, courteous and prompt. We look forward to working with them in the years ahead. Thank you CEA!

We have our personal and business needs attended to by the company, our CPA is a go to for all questions in reference to the revolving tax changes that can hinder small businesses, and deter planning of personal changes in our lives. Storm has been our great resource for answers. The company resource group offers additional aid toward small business needs, i.e. localized go to Quickbook support. Can't imagine Springfield without this group!!
