Dawn Beatty, CPA, of Beatty CPA, LLC

Ms. Beatty graduated from Texas A & M University in 1985 with a BBA in Finance.

Ms. Beatty has worked for two of the Big 4 accounting firms, a top five firm, and a large local Houston firm.  Her concentration includes compliance and consulting needs of business entities and executives. A significant portion of her clients have international transactions. Client industries include distribution, manufacturing, retail, and service.

Ms. Beatty believes that there is much more to the Tax Compliance process than completing tax forms and sending them into a taxing jurisdiction. Rather, the tax return is the final piece in the process of developing and designing tax planning ideas and opportunities. It is extremely important that there is a high level of coordination between the tax consulting function and the tax and reporting functions, to ensure that the tax strategies are accurately implemented, all regulations are properly complied with, and tax positions are thoroughly documented and defendable in the case that they are challenged.
