Service Teams


At DPW, we believe that business growth is only valuable when it achieves the personal goals of the business owner. Yet every day’s growth brings with it an increase in complexity to the point that it’s easy to lose sight of one’s progress toward their goals.

That’s why we always begin our planning by getting to know where you want to go. Once we know where you want to go, our job is to present you with real-world options of different routes to get there – short- and long-term. Once established, we handle the minutiae of executing your plan.

  • We work with management to resolve any complex accounting or reporting issues as early as possible in the process.
  • Your financial review will be planned and executed by an experienced team that understands your industry, your business goals, and the needs of the financial statement users.
  • Beyond the immediate needs of your financial summaries, you’ll gain important insights into your operations which result in increased efficiency of their efforts.

State and Local Tax (SALT)

Expert guidance for interstate business

Because your business crosses borders, you face over 80,000 state and local tax jurisdictions nationwide, each with its own set of evolving rules and regulations. The maze of these taxes and the impact they can have on a business and a family’s wealth can be overwhelming.

Digital service providers, e-commerce sellers, consumers, as well as buyers and sellers of businesses are still assessing compliance with new economic nexus statutes. For this reason, the guidance of DPW’s SALT team is invaluable.

  • We help you navigate the complex state and local tax filing responsibilities. Along the way, we will identify key financial opportunities.
  • Our SALT accounting team will proactively review your business activity regularly to address nexus, tax exposure, sales sourcing, non-business income, and any similar issues.
  • We’ll keep you informed about credits and incentives you may be able to take advantage of in the states where you do business.



  • Our consultations are based on a thorough understanding of your business and personal goals. Our recommendations form actionable and realistic paths for opportunities and improvement.
  • We perform studies and analyses to maximize your ability to capitalize on opportunities, improve profitability. We ensure your current accounting method serves your goals as well as they should.
  • We help you identify opportunities for growth which safeguard your assets from tax liabilities even as they offer increased earnings.


While every CPA firm can handle your personal or business accounting needs, at DPW we merge both aspects of our clients life; knowing that business goals should be integrated with personal goals. We aim your business goals at your personal goal target.

Naturally, this changes the way we work with people. Instead of merely filling out forms, we have to take a longer view, something most CPA firms can’t do. Serving the entire financial person takes a blend of skills unique to DPW.

We can show you how to build a bridge from where you are now to where you want to be. And after all, that’s the point of owning a business.
