Who We Are

With a CPA handling your financial matters, you’re more likely to make solid choices and achieve satisfying results. Our combined education and experience has given us a background you can rely on for fast accurate answers to your hardest questions. With the many changes in the tax laws every year, you need someone dedicated to keeping abreast of every piece of tax legislation. Unlike non-CPA preparers, CPAs must take 40 hours per year of rigorous continuing education. This allows Joe C. Hockaday, CPA to be your most knowledgeable, most creative and most reliable resource for tax matters.
