“We have engaged Scheffel Boyle to perform our audit and tax return preparation for the past 15 years.  The Scheffel Boyle team has continuously proven to stay ahead of the game in advising us on accounting issues related to the financial institution industry as well as sound tax planning advice.  We have recently partnered with them for some compliance areas and look forward to them helping us streamline our processes while expanding our product lines.  It is great to have a larger size firm’s resources at your disposal, but continue to work with the same team year after year, and at a competitive rate also!”
