Jackson Thornton, a certified public accounting and consulting firm headquartered in Montgomery, is pleased to announce it was recently named as one of “America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms” by Forbes Magazine. The firm has an office in downtown Opelika’s historic district.
Only 227 firms nationwide were selected, seven of which were in Alabama. Jackson Thornton was selected as being a top recommendation in both the tax and accounting areas.
Forbes and market research company Statista partnered to create the list, which considered 1,800 survey responses from CPAs, enrolled agents, tax lawyers, accountants and CFOs. The firms that received the most recommendations were included on the list.
“We’re honored to have been recognized by Forbes in this way,” said Ned Sheffield, president and managing principal of Jackson Thornton. “It’s really gratifying to have been recommended by our peers and colleagues in both the accounting and tax areas.”
