Virginia-based CPA and Consulting Firm recognized in a specialty ranking

In its 2024 ranking of the Top 100 Firms, Accounting Today has named PBMares to its Leaders in Tax specialty category. While the Firm has been ranked among the Top 100 since 2018, including as one of the top firms in the Capital Region, this is the first time that PBMares has earned the specialty designation as a Leader in Tax. As reported in the rankings, the Firm’s fee split for Tax services comprises 49 percent of overall net revenue.

Leaders in Tax are ranked by revenue, with eight firms each in three categories: more than $1 billion, more than $100 million, and less than $100 million. Among the seven other Tax Leaders with revenue of less than $100 million, PBMares is the only firm headquartered in the Capital Region, which comprises Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

“We’re proud to be recognized as a national leader in Tax by the industry leaders at Accounting Today,” remarked CEO Harvey Johnson. “Over the past few years, our Tax team has worked tirelessly to implement technology enhancements and process improvements that allow us to do more for clients. These upgrades have made the Accounting Today recognition possible and also pave the way for continued innovation in the Tax space.”

The specialty ranking for Leaders in Tax was part of Accounting Today’s annual ranking of Top 100 Firms. PBMares improved its position and advanced six spots, to 75th overall.

Accounting Today is the leading information resource for public accountants, with a digital and print community that reaches more than 325,000 practitioners in the U.S.
