Why should education employees use Andrew Griffith CPA for their income tax return and consulting needs?

Andrew Griffith, DBA, EA, CPA (NY), CMA, CIA, CFE, CRMA has experience providing income tax and consulting services to clients who work within the education industry. He has prepared income tax returns for students (he won't accept his current students as clients; he requires them to do their own tax returns), teachers, professors, and retired educators. He has also served as a consultant for educational organizations. His own teaching experience includes a year teaching in an engineering program at a public technical institution and more than 15 years teaching graduate and undergraduate accounting courses online and in-person at public, publicly-traded for-profit, and private non-profit higher education institutions.

In 2020, he published research providing insight into the workload of higher education faculty and how the teaching and service obligations can interfere with research productivity levels (1). In 2019, he published a finance research paper on the publicly-traded for-profit education industry and its stock price behavior during a recession (2). In 2018, he published a conceptual paper illustrating how alumni could help libraries at higher education institutions (3). His 2017 publication is an accounting paper exploring earnings announcements in the publicly-traded for-profit education industry during a recession (4). During 2012 and 2011, he published two research papers that examine annualized earnings growth rates during a 40-year and 30-year career period respectively by members of the U.S. workforce (5 and 6).
