Wilmington, DE – December 23, 2019
— Belfint, Lyons & Shuman, CPAs (BLS), a Top 300 accounting firm headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, is closing 2019 with a bang by earning the honor of being the only Delaware-based firm named on Forbes’ inaugural America’s Top Recommended Tax and Accounting Firms List. Of the more than 100,000 CPA firms, only 227 firms made the list and BLS was one of 90 firms to make both the Tax and Accounting lists. To create the list, Forbes partnered with Statista, a global market research firm, to survey CPAs, tax attorneys, accountants, and CFOs. Respondents were asked to indicate up to 10 firms each for tax and accounting services that they would recommend to others and CPA firm employees could not self-nominate.

BLS Managing Director, Michael T. French, CPA, states, “We are thrilled with this honor from Forbes, especially knowing that the vote was among industry peers and business professionals. This recognition is a cool way to cap off a great year for BLS which included being an IPA Top 300 Firm for the fifth consecutive year, a Top Workplace locally for the eleventh consecutive year, and a ClearlyRated 2019 Best of Accounting™ Award Winner for Client Service Excellence. It makes me proud to know that our staff is living up to our mission of Providing Exceptional Services through Exceptional People.”
