Lisa Powers is my secret weapon. She is my peer to peer business, finance and tax strategist. I’ve maximized my net worth and have peace of mind, knowing I’m paying the right amount of taxes and recently purchased my dream property.

I first went to Lisa for tax advice over 18 years ago as I was leaving the tech world to start a real estate development and investing business with my husband.  Not only has Lisa given us invaluable tax and estate planning advice over the years, she has also become an essential business advisor.  Her own experience as a real estate entrepreneur gives her a creative perspective that would be hard to duplicate.  Her brilliance, common sense, and good humor make her a pleasure to work with!

Powers Equity and Accountancy, Inc. has provided me with knowledgeable and insightful financial guidance both personally and professionally for over sixteen years. During that time, Lisa Powers and her team have worked closely with my company’s Controller to ensure that our accounting department always follows best practices. Because my company is a privately owned S Corp, my husband and I have also engaged the firm for our personal tax matters. This arrangement has greatly streamlined the process for us.

Lisa Powers & Team are in a league of their own. Prior to working with Lisa, I was under the impression that all accountants were created equal, to some extent. This pre-conceived notion couldn’t be farther from the truth. Lisa is the Roll's Royce of accountant's. Around every corner, her depth of knowledge and incomparable ability to extract value will surprise you. My checking account has never been happier.

Tax Dispute Resolution

Have you ever met someone whose insight, expertise and graciousness compelled you to avail yourself of their guidance? Then you know my experience with Lisa Powers.   As both a Masters in Taxation and a CPA Lisa is uniquely positioned to effectively navigate the intricacies of the IRS and do returns. Her tax advice is insightful on point. When the IRS erroneously challenged my husband’s privately owned S Corp on a tax filing, Lisa took the bull by the horns with integrity and aplomb.  She tenaciously led us through the process to resolution, saving us a lot of money and untold stress. As I establish my legal and dispute resolution practice bi-coastally I will rely on Lisa’s continued guidance and expertise to advise me on tax, business and real estate investment matters. Lisa is not only an outstanding professional, business owner and real estate investor; she is a wonderful human being.
