415 Group, a certified public accounting, business consulting and IT services firm based in Canton, Ohio, was recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms for the second year in a row. The annual list surveyed tax and accounting professionals and their clients to find the best firms.

“It’s incredible for our firm to be recognized at a national level two years in a row,” said Rich Craig, 415 Group managing partner. “We’re honored to be appreciated by others in the industry after working so hard for our clients—especially throughout the ups and downs of the pandemic.”

415 Group is one of only eight winners in Ohio to be recognized in both the tax and accounting services categories.The firm is one of 177 firms across the country to be recognized in both categories (46 were awarded in only one specialty.)

To compile the list of recommended firms, Forbes partnered with Statista, a market research company. They reached out to those working in tax and accounting firms, including CFOs, CPAs, tax attorneys, and accountants. Additionally, peers and clients could sign up to take the survey as well. For the final analysis, about 4,400 recommendations were considered.
