Machen McChesney makes the list of America’s Best Tax & Accounting Firms for 2021 by Forbes.

Machen McChesney, one of the region’s leading CPA and business advisory firms is pleased to announce that Forbes named Machen McChesney to its 2nd annual list of America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms 2021.

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to create a list of the most recommended firms for tax and accounting services in the U.S. Of the 278 firms identified, 250 were recommended for tax services, and 200 were recommended for accounting services. Machen McChesney was recognized in both categories.

Between August 3rd and September 13th, 2020, Statista conducted broad surveys among tax and accounting professionals and their clients in the United States.

Peers were asked to indicate up to ten tax /accounting firms they would recommend if their company could not take on a client for a specific assignment or question (regardless of the reason). Clients were asked to name up to ten tax/accounting firms they would recommend based on their professional experience during the last three years.

Statista carefully reviewed the participants’ responses as well as the final list of awarded companies. Recommendations for one’s own firm were excluded from the analysis.

The resulting top lists of “America’s Best Tax Firms 2021” and “America’s Best Accounting Firms 2021” are based on the number of recommendations received from participants (peers and clients). To be included in either one of the two top lists, a given company must receive a minimum number of recommendations from peers or clients for their tax and/or accounting services.

Marty Williams, the firm’s managing partner, stated, “We are honored to be chosen as a Forbes top tax and accounting firm and grateful to be recognized alongside some of the best firms in the nation. This is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and commitment of our entire team. It is exciting to know we were recognized by not only our clients but our peers as well.”
