Kurt O'Neill, CPA, Offers Personalized, Reliable Tax Preparation And Accounting
By Meredith Thompson
For most people, math was neither a strong suit nor a highly anticipated class during school, but for Kurt ONeill it was both. I was always good with numbers its just natural for me to add things up, said ONeill, who has been a practicing CPA for 20 years.
Last October, a growing desire to live near a waterfront prompted the Maryland native to relocate his home and business from Howard County to Pasadena. While maintaining strong working relationships with his clients across the state, and many who have moved out-of-state, ONeill now offers expert, fast and reliable tax preparation and accounting services to businesses in Severna Park, Pasadena and all of Anne Arundel County.
His clientele base this year totaling about 125 consists of individuals and small businesses, spanning an assistant college basketball coach to a lawyer to a yoga shop. Every year Ive picked up new customers, but Ive never lost anyone for the past 10 or 15 years no matter where I live, ONeill explained. I guess people are fairly happy with what Ive done.
And why shouldnt they be? ONeill offers over a dozen types of personal, full-service accounting assistance, including investment and retirement planning, college savings, asset management and new-business startup for all of his clients, and remains flexible to meet their needs.
Between meeting clients in their homes and inviting them to his, ONeill goes the extra mile for many of his small-business customers, checking in with them monthly to assist with their planning and budgeting.
I keep my business pretty simple people want things done well, and quickly, he said, adding that his turnaround for clients is generally just one week.
With a new client, I review their old returns Ive found corrections that have helped people out then I look over and process their paperwork, and ask them a series of questions, ONeill summarized of his process. Ive saved people thousands in mistakes Ive found one client didnt deduct his children from his taxes for three years, and you can go back three years, so I saved him about $5,000.
This attention to detail comes from decades of education and experience. I put more thought into things I own my own business, so I understand the nuts and bolts of everything, he added.
With customers in Baltimore and Washington, ONeill considers himself privileged to live in the middle, for several reasons. Im in a good location the people are down to earth, and everyone is friendly, he smiled.
While he is still new to the area, ONeill hopes to become more of a permanent fixture in the community while continuing to expand his business.
