Testimonials

  • “The friendliness and professionalism displayed by the Blue & Co. team during our audit is first class. We feel like there is a true partnership between Blue & Co. and Manar, Inc. Keep up the good work.”

    Larry Johnson

    Manar, Inc.

  • “During my professional career, I have worked with other big accounting firms along with sole practitioners. Our organization switched to Blue & Co. last fall. In spite of being a first-year engagement, Kurt Beier, Gavin Fox, Mitch Parks, Erin Walsh, Paul Roth, Kristi Blausey, and Chris Reid provided us with the best service which I have ever received from any accounting firm.”

    Adam Scott

    Wilson’s Companies

  • “I suppose it is fair to comment that I worked with three firms before Blue & Co. that challenged my expectations. As far as accuracy, Blue is very detail oriented. I do not receive notices from the IRS requesting any forms that were missing or correcting the filed returns. As far as performance, our 2017 business and personal files were completed weeks early of deadlines. And as far as responsiveness, I’ve never waited more than 12 hours for a final answer.”
