We can help with basic business needs such as the creation of various financial reports that provide information about your company’s financial health. The main financial reports that are typically prepared are the Balance Sheet and the Profit & Loss. Accurate preparation of these reports requires a comprehensive understanding of accounting principles and practices, as well as the ability to accurately record financial transactions and calculate financial ratios and metrics.

Not only is DOW Accounting professional and knowledgeable, they support their local community and nonprofits. Eric, the owner, reached out to our Nonprofit, The Eagle Mountain Nature and Wildlife Alliance, and offered to do our year end taxes for... free! When it came to tax time, his staff was quick to answer all questions and help us file our taxes.I think it’s little things like helping nonprofits and the individual attention that sets Dow Tax and Accounting apart from other accounting businesses.Once again, thank you Eric and Team for helping us! We sincerely appreciate you and everything you do for our more

I would give this company a full 10 stars if I could. Not only were they very fast and responsive with getting everything that they needed for me, they were also very patient when I had neglected to get the documents that I needed to. They were very... professional. The hour that I spent with Eric was by far one of the most productive I’ve had in the past year. My wife and I came in expecting to pay a significant amount in taxes due to some financial moves that we made in the previous year but through his expertise and experience he took the time to understand the laws behind our situation and was actually able to give us a lot of hope. Instead of paying a significant amount of money we actually made quite a bit. It was literally worth every penny and we will be back year after year after year. He’s earned our business. You should trust him with yours!read more

Every person in the office (total of only 4 so they are get to know you!) is happy and helpful. I... love how they work things out in the best way possible. I love that they are a small business with big support for my businesses, my family, and me. I highly recommend Dow in tax season and year round more
There was one year the IRS sent me a big bill and said we didn't report some income and in a panic I almost paid it but called Eric first. He wrote a letter to explain to them where it was reported and they said nevermind. Had I not called Eric, I... would have been out 5k.Another time in the years of 1st time home buyer credit repayment, it was a new deal and we sold our house before we'd fully repaid the credit but the IRS was confused and they couldn't figure out which way was up. After Eric wrote a reply to their letter explaining to them why we didn't agree that we owed more, they decided to incorrectly send us our money back. They pridefully wouldn't accept a return of the funds that belonged to them. 😆 I think they didn't want to admit they were wrong again. And we got a nice trip to Disneyland.Year after year, Eric has been there making sure we don't over pay and can back up his accounting. Well worth the piece of more
