COVID-19: The need for social distancing has forced us to implement some changes to our procedures. Since our reception area is fairly small, only one person at a time will be permitted to come into our office. The reflective glass on our front doors makes it very difficult to see if someone is already inside; therefore, our entry door stays locked throughout the day. Simply knock when you arrive and someone from our staff will let you know if it is okay to come inside at that time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

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