    We like surprises if they're the good kind...not if they involve writing a large, unexpected check to the government.

    The amount of tax compliance required by a small business can be intimidating. We like to think we are in the "peace of mind" business when it comes to preparing tax returns and assisting small businesses with tax planning.

    Pinnacle Environmental Services

    - Michael Watts, President

    "Our company, Pinnacle Environmental Services, Inc., has been working with Godwin CPA for several years with much success. Their team always has a smile and consistently has made the time to answer even the smallest of questions. They always respond in a timely manner.

    We have found them to be a very “forward thinking” accounting firm that listens intently and focuses on our particular accounting needs and challenges.

    After gathering an understanding of our core business model, they utilized the latest technologies to make the accounting portion of our business much smoother and accurate. Being technology savvy, they applied the latest software to our applications which have reduced man hours and provided for consistent accounting reporting.

    We believe Jon Godwin and his staff have made a huge impact on our success as a company. We wouldn’t do it without them! They are an important part of our team!"
