Accountants have a reputation for being timid, inflexible, and distant. I’m a CPA and I’m not afraid to take a bold position and stand by it. I am creative; always looking for new and exciting ways to help my customers. And, I am personal as I deliver timely responses customized to the needs of each customer. Our services are as unique as our approach. My firm is about more than tax returns and bookkeeping. Small businesses need to be able to act quickly and with sound information. I design custom accounting service packages for small businesses, within your budget, that allow you to off-load your accounting burden. My goal is to provide better information faster than you are currently getting, while using less of your valuable time. Our services are an asset; an investment you can expect a return on.


I have helped small businesses with their accounting needs for 15 years.  I opened Dan Livengood CPA LLC in 2002, making me the fourth generation of entrepreneur in my family.  My firm is part of a new generation of accountants who believe the focus should be on the customer and their needs and not tradition.


I bundle services to remove as much of your accounting burden as you would like.  Take what you want and leave the rest.  My services include, but are not limited to:


Let the experts enter all your transactions to save you time and the costs of mistakes.
