December 12, 2019 - Kruggel Lawton was recognized this week in Forbes magazine's annual ranking of America’s top recommended tax and accounting firms for 2020. Named as a top recommended tax firm, Kruggel Lawton is one of only five Indiana-based firms listed.
Forbes worked with analytics firm Statista to compile the rankings. Statista considered 1,800 survey responses from CPAs, enrolled agents, tax lawyers, accountants and CFOs between August 12 and September 13, 2019. Survey participants who worked for a tax or accounting firm could name up to ten firms for tax and ten firms for accounting that they would recommend if their company were not able to take on a client. Survey participants who worked in a company on the client side were asked to name up to ten firms each in tax and accounting that they would recommend based on their professional experience during the last three years. The firms that received the most recommendations were included on the final list. Self-recommendations were not considered. The final list consists of 227 firms, with 202 recommended for tax services and 115 recommended for accounting services.
“We are honored to be named one of America’s top recommended tax firms by Forbes,” said Barry Hall, Managing Partner at Kruggel Lawton. “Our team of professionals has worked very hard to learn the ins and outs of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act - and how it would impact our clients. We held several informational events, published content throughout the year, and consulted with our clients one-on-one to help them navigate the changes. Client surveys at the close of the 2019 tax season confirmed we served our clients well but this recognition by our peers and others also means a great deal."
