Jim Bernhardt and I go back many  years to when I was asked to join a BNI group in Fairfield CT - and I found he and a few others so nice and friendly - how could I resist?   
We had a CPA that we had been using, so I never had need to do more than ask Jim the occasional question, and banter with him over a cup of tea.  
This year our CPA retired, and so we were "in the hunt,"  so to speak, for a new one before tax season returned.    … (10 comments)
