Should I use a CPA closer to me or to the properties

4 Replies

Hello BP Community,

I am a Houston resident and am looking to acquire a few investment properties over the next 6-12 months through my LLC (formed in Ohio). In the short term, I am only focusing on properties located in Ohio.

  

Would you recommend I use a local, Houston-based, accountant (I have a W-2 job here in Houston)?  Or, in the alternative, is it wiser to use an accountant in the area in which the properties are located?  If the former, I would appreciate any recommendations for a Houston-based accountant.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
