Our name shows our commitment to integrity.
Integrity 1st Accounting & Tax Services places an emphasis on giving each of our clients the personal attention and tailored service to fit their need and situation. Integrity 1st provides the ideal combination of services obtained from bookkeeping companies and larger CPA firms.
Our services are especially beneficial for sole proprietors, nonprofit directors, and other business owners who have the need but may lack the resources or volume for a full-time accountant or Controller. They may also lack the knowledge or desire to perform the tasks on their own. Outsourcing this function to a qualified professional allows these entities to focus their time on the business. Integrity 1st also has the expertise to document or identify existing control processes. We focus on ethical and professional financial education, empowerment, and freedom. There is no interest in cutting corners to obtain the desired end-result. Be free to report your financial data accurately and completely and still experience savings!
