What People Say About Us
“Our relationship with Joe Hockaday has been very positive. Joe’s team has developed over the years to support our ever-changing needs. Despite the fact that we are three times larger than when we started, we still enjoy the same personal hands on service that Joe has always provided. Of all our business partners, Joe remains one that we can always count on. Thanks, Joe!”
SeanPresident, Brokerage Firm
“Joe Hockaday is not only a very capable, experienced, and knowledgeable CPA, but one who understands the value of listening to his clients. As most small business owners can attest, the demands of taxes, financial planning, payroll, and overall business planning are quite daunting. You need a partner who not only understands the intricacies of all these vitally important business functions, but will listen to your goals/concerns, and help you realize your own dreams. Joe is not only a great accountant, but a great friend as well.”
“If Joe can’t fix it, no one can. Joe Hockaday is one of the most receptive, communicative, understanding (to name a few) CPAs we have had the pleasure of working with over the last six years. We are lucky to have found him. We got audited and Joe was with us every step of the way. In fact, he stumped the IRS auditor. How’s that for knowing what to say and what to do? Joe you have been a blessing in our lives. Thank you for your trust and support through the years!”
VickiSkin Care Specialist
“As a small business owner, my time is at a premium and is best spent on selling and delivering. Joe and team make the back office “tax” requirements of owning your own business as time neutral as possible. Joe was there for us when we were chosen for a state sales tax audit and navigated us through the process. He is a valued member of our team!”
SueSmall Business Owner
“In starting up a new business, the financial end of things was the most daunting. I knew what I was doing on the business end of things but was at a loss when it came to the financial reporting. Joe and his staff met with me, helped me select the financial program best suited to our business reporting needs and have continued to come out and keep me running. At the end of our first year of business, we had solid financials and a great tax report!”
ChrisOwner, Utilities Firm
“We have worked with Joe Hockaday now for four years and he is extremely thorough with our business and personal taxes and has helped us maximize our deductions and also eliminate any costly mistakes for our business. We have really enjoyed our relationship with Joe as he is very personable and really knows what he is doing. We highly recommend him and his services.”
“Managing the accounting for my company used to be the most stressful part of our day-to-day operations. Keeping up with all of the evolving rules and IRS regulations was a full-time job in itself. Now that Joe is in our corner, I know that every filing is done accurately and on time. This gives me time to focus on what I enjoy most: running my business.”
“Joe is the most helpful CPA I have ever worked with. Just the tax saving tips he shares with me more than pay for using his services. He is thorough and responsive to all issues and needs. I can honestly say I will never need another CPA.”
