About Fern Hill CPA

Serving Families, Individuals, and Businesses since 1987.

A CFO approach to personal and business finances.

There is so much more to finances and taxes than “See you next April.” Most people view their taxes as unpleasant and only think about them and their finances once a year. This normally leaves money on the table and misses what can be substantial planning and savings opportunities.

Fern Hill CPA is a specialty firm dedicated to providing individuals, families, and businesses consistent guidance and strategic financial recommendations. We believe that taxes should not be done in a silo; the more we understand your family, personal, and business goals and situations, the more we can help create strategies that not only include tax planning and return preparation but also address retirement planning, insurance, investing, medical insurance, and much more as a whole.

Find peace of mind, personal financial freedom, and success in your business with Fern Hill CPA.
