  • My initial engagement with Chappell Professional Services was for personal and business tax preparation three years ago. Since that time I've began using other services to include tax planning, accounting and bookeeping,payroll and will be using their financial planning soon.With payroll being facilitated by Chappell I'm assured of checks being printed and ready on time, all applicable payroll taxes being payed and processed timely and alleviated of the headache of doing it myself. As a healthcare professional and entrepreneur having access to an experienced faith based accountant has allowed me to focus on day to day activities and business development. I'll continue recommending them to others, because I'm one satisfied customer.

  • I began working with David Chappell and his group several years ago as a computer consultant for his firm. The first thing that struck me about him was his grasp on technology and how it can be used to help his business. Soon I began to work with him on my personal tax planning. He and his staff have been very helpful in working with my accounts which are fairly complex. His online client portal makes it very easy for me to organize my documentation and get all of the needed information to him. He has also provided me with some excellent advice on running my business and has been instrumental in generating business leads for our company. He and his staff are great resources to have and have been invaluable to me and my company.
