“Relationships are the cornerstone of our business and we genuinely care about our clients and their success. We believe that is what makes us successful. Being recognized by Forbes is an indication to us that our approach to client service is appreciated. We will continue to strive to be a leader and innovator in our industry for our clients and a resource for our peers.”

In December of 2019, Forbes released its list of the most recommended firms for tax and accounting services. The list included 227 firms, which included some of the largest and smallest firms in the country. Dean Dorton is the only Kentucky-based firm to make the list.

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to conduct the survey used to generate the list. Survey participants were challenged to list up to ten firms in both tax and accounting that they would recommend if their company were not able to take on a client.  The survey was based on the participant’s professional experience within the last three years in the industry. The firms that received the most recommendations were included on the list.

“It’s an honor to make this list, and it’s even more humbling that our peers are the ones who recommended us,” said Bundy.

Statista considered 1,800 survey responses from CPAs, enrolled agents, tax lawyers, accountants, and CFOs between August 12 and September 13, 2019. The final list consists of 227 firms, with 202 recommended for tax services and 115 recommended for accounting services.
