Looking for CPA in Chicago

3 Replies

Hi all, with the new year approaching I find myself looking for a new CPA in Chicago. I'm sure this has been asked many times here but would appreciate any recommendations you guys might have. 

Thanks!

Marco I will send you my CPA.  He is fantastic and works well with agents and investors.

There are many options of finding a local CPA with experience in real estate tax strategies.

1. Use the search function if a BP member previously was in search of a CPA. I like this approach because you can ask the posters who they ended up using and if they like working with them.
I went ahead and pulled up 4 posts of Chicago BP members asking for a CPA.

2. Attend local real estate investment networking events. You can use the Events section of BP or go on meetup.com for groups/events.
Below is a link of an event occurring near Chicago in the future

3. Find the big players in Chicago on BP.
Add the keywords "Chicago" and/or "Illinois" to the BP keyword alerts. You will notice that there are frequent posters who respond to topics with these keywords. Feel free to add these individuals to your network and ask who they use as a CPA.

4. If you are still unable to find a local CPA - Feel free to broaden your search by looking for a CPA that works with clients remotely. There are many CPA's on BP that do so.

In the meantime - feel free to ask any tax related questions. I would be glad to give my input.

Good luck on your search!
