As a Certified Public Accounting Firm, we adhere to the highest level of professional ethical responsibility and obligations to protect the confidentiality of all client information.
In order to meet your needs in the course of tax return preparation, tax and financial planning, and tax compliance engagements for you, we collect various types of personal information about you from the following sources:
We do not share any personal information about you with anyone without your expressed consent, except as permitted by law and as described below. The law permits or requires disclosure in certain instances, such as if we must share information to protect against fraud, in response to a court subpoena, or as part of actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternate dispute resolution.
We share any information we collect (except for consumer reporting agency information, which we do not disclose) to nonaffiliated companies which perform support services on our behalf (such as tax or data processing, transmission or electronic returns or data, records retention, and mailing services.) We do not sell or otherwise disclose our client list or any of your information to outside companies for their marketing or solicitation use.
We may also share your information with other parties who help assure our compliance with professional accounting standards (such as peer review), or who conduct due diligence procedures, such as if we consider a sale or merger of our practice.
Keeping your information confidential and secure is of utmost importance to us. We follow standard industry practices to actively protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of your personal information. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your personal information. Our employees are bound by internal confidentiality policies and are subject to disciplinary action for any policy violations. And we take appropriate precautions such as confidentiality agreements before sharing your information with any outside parties.
As a Certified Public Accounting Firm, our professional ethical obligations and responsibilities have demanded no less than the highest regard and duties for the confidentiality of your personal information and the security of your privacy. We will protect your personal information, use it only as necessary, and perform our engagements so as to always maintain your trust and confidence in us.
Thank you for allowing us to be of service, we truly value our relationship with you. We hope you view our firm as your most trusted advisor, and we will work to continue earning that trust. Please call us anytime you have questions or if we may be of further service.
