James T. Scherer, CPA | LinkedIn

Jim Scherer has over 40 years of accounting experience and has held his CPA license for nearly as long. In addition to his extensive experience in accounting, Jim was the mayor of Hiawatha for 10 years and has held many committee positions within the community.

We finished the 2018 tax filing season in very good condition. We completed tax returns before the filing deadline for all clients whom had all of their data in our office . We take great pride in the fact that the only extensions prepared were for those clients whom requested such.

The highest form of compliment you can make is to refer us to a friend or family member so they also may benefit from our personal, professional, and prompt service.
