Meet Our Team
Tax and Business Consultants
The Watson CPA Group is not only a group of Colorado Springs CPAs or number crunchers- we are tax and business consultants and our firm will take you through the financial cycles of your personal and business lives. Many accountants are only compliance oriented, and while IRS compliance is critical, being proactive is equally important.
Not every business runs the same or has the same needs. We want to ask the appropriate questions, listen, and develop a game plan that works for you. Topics such as entity structure, health insurance, retirement planning, executive fringe benefits, 401k and profit sharing plans, educational assistance programs, health reimbursement arrangements and accountable plans are just some of the areas that define the form and function of today’s business. Square pegs don’t go in round holes- we’ll find the right solution for you and your business.
Moreover, our goal at the Watson CPA Group is to always prepare comprehensive and accurate financial reports, filings and tax returns, but equally important is your understanding of how this stuff “works”. To the extent necessary, we want you to be comfortable with your tax and accounting world so together we can successfully plan for your future.
Yes, we are a bunch of Colorado Springs CPAs but we do most of our business (over 80% in fact) outside of Colorado. How? The Watson CPA Group embraces technology by utilizing secure client portals and online submit forms to exchange documentation. However, we remain committed to direct delivery, face-to-face interactions and personal relationships with our clients. While most of our clients are primarily in California, Nevada, Colorado, Texas, the Midwest, Florida and New England, we serve business owners in all 50 states including Washington D.C.
Join Our Team
The Watson CPA Group is continuously looking for professionals to join our team of business consultants and tax return preparers. We offer benefits such as flexible work hours (including work from home), health insurance reimbursements through an HRA, 401k, disability insurance, among others. We have a fun atmosphere and are closed on Fridays from May through November. Here is a link to our current positions and associated applications-
We have 30 people working for you; not too big, not too small. Goldilocks would be happy. Additionally, we chop ourselves up into Pods so that each team is functioning as a mini firm within a firm. This allows more intimacy of each client’s unique needs. On the outside, your house is just like anyone else’s house; four walls and a roof. But the colors, floor coverings, furnishes, beer selection, etc. is what makes you unique. We have firm-wide systems and procedures to ensure quality and accuracy, but that is simply the foundation for us to build upon. Relationships, closeness, understanding, communication, seeing clients as people, etc. are the things that we remain focused on and dedicated to.
We also try to let loose a bit here and there. On Fridays, we have 405’s since drinking before 4:05PM is frowned upon by Tina. We used to shoot dart guns, that just got out of control. Maybe our 405’s will have to be called “tastings” so we remain classy, like San Diego.
