Our Story

Welcome to Whitmer & Company CPA’S, LLP.

Steve passed away on October 31, 2012. While he is no longer physically with us, the principles on which he founded the firm are still here, loyalty, accountability, professionalism, and respect, while maintaining the absolute highest degrees of integrity. He was passionate about giving every client great service. These are all qualities that Whitmer & Company CPA’S, LLP strive for, every day.
