ABOUT us

More Than Just a CPA Firm



At Williams & Kunkel, CPAs, LLP, we partner with our clients by providing the advice and tools which allow them to succeed. Many of our business owners have a great vision for their business, but they need the expertise of an experienced CPA firm to guide them.

Our Story

Scott Kunkel and Beth Williams established Williams & Kunkel, CPAs, LLP, in 2005, with the vision to provide a different kind of CPA firm. We are a full-service tax and accounting firm, but our passion is to help you build a great business and at the same time create and maintain the wealth you desire.

We believe that success and prosperity is possible for anyone who follows these steps: 1) set a worthy goal; 2) make a plan of action; 3) take action; and 4) have faith. It is our mission to inspire and teach our clients the three golden keys to financial success and prosperity:

Earn more money
  • We work constantly to increase your financial rewards.
  • We work according to a set monthly retainer fee.
  • We proactively monitor your progress on a monthly basis so you can adjust quickly to maximize profits.
  • We help you establish systems that allow you to take the pulse of your business, better control your activities, and know exactly the results of your business operations at all times.
Keep more money
  • Most business owners are overpaying their taxes by tens of thousands of dollars every year.
  • When we work together the first service we do is a “COMPREHENSIVE TAX REDUCTION PLAN.”
  • We always find tax savings strategies that apply to you even if you have already been working with a CPA to prepare your taxes.
  • The tax plan will in most cases save you money in the first year and every year going forward.

What our clients say

  • My wife and I spent MANY YEARS bouncing around from one tax professional to the next trying to find someone that could handle the complexity of our tax situation and work for US and not the IRS. Someone who would work to allow us to keep more of our hard earned money instead of giving too much to the IRS because they were trying to be "conservative" and afraid of an audit. Then we found Williams and Kunkel. These guys took us in, had a couple meetings with us to understand the complexities of our tax situation and then went to work for us. They came up with a plan based on several tax strategies we didn't know existed and hadn't even thought of. These guys are not just people who can get your taxes done. They are experts and have mastered their very complicated craft. They stay up on all of the new tax laws and every year, they let us know how this will affect us and they come up with new strategies, if necessary. We sleep much better at night knowing that we have finally found tax professionals who are working for us and are on our side. Scott, Beth, Derek and ShaNae are a vital part of our team and their guidance has allowed us to scale our business and reach new heights we had only dreamed about. There are not enough stars to rate these guys. They have our highest recommendation. - John Pipitone
  • Beth and her team are fantastic! They always respond immediately and never keep us waiting; they are right there with us to provide our W-2s or whatever is needed. Williams & Kunkel make our lives easier. We don’t worry about the numbers – they do their job well, which allows us to do ours well." - Tony Logan, Owner of Jewelry Theory
  • Over the years I have come to lean on Williams & Kunkel, CPAs, LLP for more than just tax and payroll services. Each quarter I meet with both Beth and Scott to compare my numbers for tax purposes, plus analyze key performance indicators (KPIs). We also look at things like future projections, our lead generation pipeline and growth potential. From that we gain a bigger overview of how TSI is performing. Anytime I have any need, Williams & Kunkel are always offering their assistance. They are good accountants and are always there for me. - Bill Beatty, Owner of Telephone Services, Inc.
