Nation’s First Internet-Based CPA Firm Is Launched ‘My Way CPA’

My Way CPA [] claims to be the nation’s first Internet-based CPA firm. My Way CPA, headquartered in Denver, offers the services of CPAs with at least five years’ tax return preparation experience and an average of more than 20 years in accounting. Services are available at any time, from any location via Internet access.

CPA Michael Welchof of Denver says, “Americans have become more mobile and can now work from anywhere, with many people using laptops and wireless connections. Having your own online-based CPA just makes sense. This is the CPA firm of the future, and I’m excited about being on the cutting edge of this new age of accounting,” he says.

The service is for consumers who have tax return needs that are too complex for temporary tax services: small, new or home-based businesses; investors; parents with children nearing college age or anyone who needs a CPA for the first time. The company promises quick turnaround and ease of tax preparation, financial expertise extending beyond tax preparation and availability of tax records from any location with Internet and fax or scanner access. Fees are affordable and clearly outlined on the site.

Company founder and CEO Melinda Bucknam, CPA, says response has been positive for the company and its vision of web-based speed and efficiency, along with personalized CPA services. “We offer the best of both worlds: the benefits of technology backed by the excellent service of a CPA who is your own financial expert,” she says.
