About Us

My company has had the good fortune of working with Schmidt + Associates for over 15 years. We've tried other CPA firms and learned the hard way; that when it comes to the bottom line, no one does a better job of getting me the correct financial information I need to guide my company through good times and bad. Additionally, I find that their tax planning and strategizing is simply unparalleled." - James Macek, President
