DH CPA, PLLC is a practical accounting practice based in Northern Virginia.

I offer accounting services for individuals and small businesses. I've been a CPA in Virginia since 2015, and an accountant since 2007, so I bring twelve years of accounting knowledge, combined with the ethics that you would expect from a CPA. I particularly focus on personal income taxes and small business bookkeeping. However if you have another accounting question or need particular advice, feel free to contact me. If you'd like me to do your personal tax return, I charge a base rate of $500 per return. That fee covers the return preparation, any necessary research, and any state filings or schedules that you need. You'll pay a simple flat fee. To get started, click "Get started on my taxes" below.

On the surface, this seems like a great idea. As a culture, we don’t like complexity or nuance,…

Are you having enough withheld?

It’s the middle of the year, which means it’s a good time to check your withholding and estimated taxes to make sure that you’re on track. Withholding and estimated taxes are often the best ways to make sure that you don’t wind up owing a large amount of taxes next year, or that you don’t…

Did the tax cut save you any money?

This past tax season, many taxpayers were surprised with worse-than-expected results (smaller refunds, or bigger balances due to the IRS). This was an especially unwelcome surprise because due to the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, many were expecting to receive more money back. What happened? It’s important to remember that there are two…
