About Us
Michael Johnston, CPA

Hi, and thanks for visiting. Even though it was 35+ years ago, I still remember the day when I received the news from the Georgia State Board of Accountancy that I had passed the CPA exam. That was a special day in my life and it strengthened my belief, which I passed on to my son, that the key to success is hard work.

Accounting was not my first career choice, but it certainly became my life’s passion. After recovering from a serious combat wound while serving as a 1st Lieutenant, Airborne Ranger in Viet-Nam, as well as a bout with Malaria, I earned a Master’s Degree in Accounting from GA State University.

My phenomenal 43 year Income Tax career began in 1973 as a Revenue Agent with the IRS, continued on as the first Corporate Tax Director of Sun Trust Banks and lastly opening my CPA Practice in 1986 from which I retired in 2016. To satisfy an interest in teaching, I taught accounting at Clayton State & GA State Universities.

Today, CPAs in Public Accounting face a growing number of National and Local competitors who aggressively promote their products or services with no pushback from the AICPA. Meanwhile, prospective clients would walk into my office asking if I prepared individual income tax returns.

So, what can we do? We follow the recommendation of the:

CPA Horizons 2025 Report....

...published by the AICPA, to "Encourage pride among CPAs in the CPA profession ...," by promoting the CPA Brand.

Best regards,

Michael Johnston, CPA(Retired)
