COVID-19: To comply with the Governor’s stay-at-home order and the need for social distancing, our office will be closed to the public through June 10, 2020, the end of the stay-at-home order, or until such time as the social distancing standards are lifted. Our employees will be working remotely as much as possible. We are still working on your tax returns. We have installed a mail slot in which you can drop off your tax documents. There are various ways in which completed tax packages can be delivered to you. We will discuss these options with you once your return is complete and ready to be signed. Thank you for your understanding, trust, and support in this most unusual and trying time in our history. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your tax, accounting, and payroll needs.

We are excited to announce that effective December 1, 2019 we have a new name; Dean & Company CPAs, L.C.

Ward Dean, Jr. CPA, PLLC has been operating since 2003, and is the continuation of CPA firms owned by Ward Dean for over 30 years. In December 2019, Ward sold his firm to one of his employees, Sherry Clay. Ward continues to work for the firm and will do so for the foreseeable future.

Sherry is a local Certified Public Accountant with over 17 years of extensive tax and accounting experience and will continue the tradition of providing our clients with outstanding professional services. Our firm, like the previous ones, was developed with the goal of helping small businesses and individuals be successful, and avoid conflicts with the Internal Revenue Service & Virginia Department of Taxation.

The services we provide include all income & gift tax returns, monthly or other periodic accounting, financial statement preparation, full service payroll, and consulting on issues of business management & tax resolution.

Following our long-term policy, we do not charge new clients for the first one half (1/2) hour of consultation. If we agree that our services cannot help you with your needs, you will owe nothing. Please call or email us for an appointment to see if we can help you make more money or avoid issues with the tax authorities.

Important Note: Because of time and expense, as well as a number of clients that do not use them, beginning with the 2018 tax season, we will not be sending out Client Organizers unless you specifically request them by phone or email.
