By Rob Nance, Publisher - Yesterday I had a delightful conversation with Bill Gummo, an accountant in Port Allegany, Pennsylvania with clients in the forestry and logging industries.
With one assistant involved in his practice, Bill serves both business and personal clients, mostly in tax prep work and tax matters. He professes to have "grown up in the industry," so working with clients in forestry and logging in this part of the country is "just the way it is." Bill is very knowledgeable about the businesses in these industries and the challenges clients face on a daily basis. He's actually been doing taxes since the tenth grade!
Bill, like so many in the industry, "treats clients like he would like to be treated." Most of his clients are local in nature, but like in a lot of practices, people move to other states and stick with their accountant via mail, fax and Internet.
It's always great to talk with accountants like Bill. AccountingWEB's 105,000+ weekly readers have so many terrific stories about their years in the business. I never get tired of talking with our audience.
