Accountant in NYC area needed

4 Replies

Hi BP, I am currently looking for a real estate accountant. We are currently looking to working with an accountant who is nickle and diming us and is not an expert in the field. Does anyone have a good accountant that I can reach out to manage our books? I am looking someone based in the nyc area and wouldn’t mind working with a starter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Jeff

There are several options to finding a local CPA.

1) Use the biggerpockets search function to see if someone already is in search of a CPA in New York City. I did a search and provided you links below. I like this choice because you can see who people recommended and who they decided to go with based on their interactions among the many CPA's(depending of if they shopped around). You can also ask if they like their CPA and plan to continue using them.

2) Add the keyword alerts "New York City" and/or "New York". You will notice that there are frequent posters who respond to posts that have these keywords. Network with these individuals and ask who they use for a CPA.

3) Attend local REIA events. These events will normally contain seasoned investors and would be more than happy to refer you to a CPA. You can find local REIA event through the Biggerpockets events section or meetup.com. Below is 10+ events that will happen in and around the New York City Area soon.

4) If you are still unable to find a CPA that matches your needs. You may want to reach out to a CPA that works with clients remotely. There are many CPA's on this site that do so.

In the meantime - Feel free to ask any tax questions you may have. I would be glad to give you my opinion.
Feel free to add me if you think you may have a tax question in the future.
