We will focus on your business and individual needs and treat you as though you are our only client. We will advise you of any Financial and Tax opportunities that we may note as we work on the accounting for your business and during the preparation of your tax returns.

My name is Richard T. Knight, ATP, ATA (Accredited Tax Preparer, Accredited Tax Advisior). I started R T K & Associates, LLC an Accounting, Tax and Business Advisory Company 27 years ago with one major goal in mind, to give our clients quality service for a fair price. Clients deserve the very best with no exceptions. All of us pay enough of our hard earned money in taxes, so I don't believe anyone should pay a high fee to have their Accounting or Taxes professionally completed.

 

I completed and received my Certificate in Higher Federal Taxation from the National Tax Training School in Monsey, New York. The ATP, ATA credentials are issued by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT) and has been earned by practitioners who can handle sophisticated Tax Planning issues, including planning for owners of closely held business, planning for the highly compensated, choosing Qualified Retirement Plans and performing Estate Planning. Our expertise covers Tax Returns for Individuals, Business Entities, Fiduciaries, Trusts and Estate, as well as Tax Planning, Tax Consulting and Ethics.

I am an active member in good standing with the National Society of Accountants. Along with preparing and filing our client's Individual and Business Taxes, we tutor our client's in Retirement Planning, and Business Planning. Annual participation in Continuing Professional Education courses offered by local chapters of National Accounting and Tax Associations keeps my firm on the "leading edge" of ever-changing tax laws and accounting methods.
My goal is a minimum of 60 Hours of CPE Credits per year.
