Client Testimonials

I used Gary’s services to file my 2012 income tax return. This was my first year having an accountant do my return, as I have always done it myself using TurboTax. However, this year I had cancelled debt from my old primary residence which I was forced to convert to a rental property after relocating out of state.

While it didn’t cost me anything to do the short sale, the income tax consequence from the cancelled debt, roughly $50,000 in my case, was enough to move me from the 15% tax bracket to the 25% tax bracket.  Needless to say, I was concerned about that.

Finances were already tight and my husband and I are expecting our first child this fall. So the possibility of owing income tax was stressing me out. However, Gary was great at relieving my fears.

He is extremely knowledgeable, answered all my questions and was very thorough. I knew I was in good hands. He kept in constant contact with me throughout the process, keeping me updated on the progress of my return and letting me know what paperwork he needed to complete my filing.

In my mind, best case scenario would have been to not owe any taxes. Second best would be to only owe a little. Well, you can imagine my surprise and delight when Gary told me I was actually due a refund of a little over $2,700.00!

To top it all off, I found Gary’s fee for service to be fair, competitive and affordable; especially given the complexity of this type of return. I am so glad I did not try and go it alone this year. I am extremely pleased with Gary’s service and would recommend him highly to anyone, in fact I already have. If you have cancelled debt from a short sale or foreclosure, don’t freak out. Take a deep breath and call or email Gary. I am grateful I did.

CPA explains CPA License Mobility across State Lines | UAA

wilmington nc CPA

Gary Bode CPA: with a few exceptions, we can provide services to you wherever you live! For a free phone consult call (910) 399-2705.

Because of our virtual office, we field client calls from almost every State. Plus international calls from US citizens living abroad. A common question concerns us acting as CPAs in their State. Of course, that’s a logical concern. The short answer is yes, we can work with you, unless you live in California or Hawaii. But that’s only been the case for several years. Before that, a CPA license was generally restricted to the issuing State. I believe MDs still use the State by State model for licensure, as an example. 

The AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) and NASBA (National Association of the State Boards of Accountancy) worked tirelessly to create and implement the UAA (Uniform Accountancy Act). One aspect of UAA concerns mobility of the CPA licenses. Per the NASBA website:

Individual mobility is available (with no further filing or fee) if you hold an active unrestricted CPA license in your principal place of business. “CPA license” means a CPA license granted by the state board after all education, exam and experience requirements have been met.

As of the published date of this post, only California and Hawaii haven’t enacted UAA yet. So, even though I’m only licensed in NC, those are the only two States I can’t automatically offer services for. There are restrictions and caveats of course. But none worth mentioning, given the scope of our services. 

So, if like our virtual office model, we can privide services to you, almost anywhere you live. I see tax services becoming specialized by expertise, not by locality. If you like what you read, and don’t have a local CPA, consider calling us for a free phone consult at (910) 399-2705.
