About Sound Accounting

sound-accounting-staffSound Accounting is a Certified Public Accounting firm headquartered in Chickamauga, Georgia – just 15 minutes south of downtown Chattanooga. Our firm works with individuals and businesses with a special focus on tax and financial planning.

Why work with a CPA financial planner? Because CPAs are the ONLY regulated financial planners and because the person who does your financial planning must also understand the complexities of your tax situation.

CPAs are licensed, rigorously trained, and follow stringent ethical standards. CPA financial planners apply these strengths to your financial future – objectively evaluating everything from retirement plans and educational funding to investments and estate planning with the highest level of integrity.


Can your tax or financial advisor explain the options available to you simply? Can they answer your questions directly, using terms and language you can understand? If not, they may not truly understand the suggestions they are making for your financial future.

As more and more people came to us asking for help, we quickly discovered that the failure to consider the tax implications of financial, investment, and retirement decisions can be ruinous.
