Why S&B

People Centric, Client Focused
Welcome to Scott & Baldwin, CPAs!

Our firm was established by Rick Scott, CPA, in 1979, originally as an individual tax practice. Over the years we grew and evolved to offer accounting, tax and consulting services for corporations and not-for-profits, in addition to individual tax and consulting services. While we perform financial statement audits, business valuations, cash flow projections, financial analysis reports and more, we’re still deeply rooted in our tax practice.

We care about our team, recognizing that they provide our clients with the S&B experience. We value our clients, recognizing that it is a privilege to serve you. That’s why we are “People Centric, Client Focused.”

Clients appreciate this focal point and in addition, tell us S&B is their CPA firm for several other reasons:

We’ve been in business for over 30 years and are available to our clients year-round

S&B has earned a positive reputation with clients, business associates and government agencies for our compliance and consulting services. While we've been acknowledged for many years as a Top 25 Firm in the greater Sacramento area, we are still a local firm that values and appreciates our individual client relationships.

We're current on changing tax laws and know how to apply them for the best possible tax outcomes

Whether you have a streamlined tax return, or one filled with more complicated transactions, we will consult with you and prepare your tax returns with the best possible outcome that we stand behind in the event of an audit.

We understand business and the needs of the business owner

We leverage your accounting information to provide you and your business with the information you really want, such as: how can our financials be improved for bank presentation, should I lease or buy this building, how do we bring in more cash to the company, what line of business is profitable and what is the tax impact of certain decisions?
