2023 List Marks Third Consecutive Year for Canton-Based Firm

415 Group, the largest locally owned public accounting and IT consulting firm in Stark County, based in Canton, Ohio, was recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms for 2023. The annual list was compiled by surveying tax and accounting professionals and their clients to find the best firms.

“We are honored to be awarded for both tax and accounting services for another year,” said Rich Craig, 415 Group managing partner. “Coming out of the thick of the pandemic, our clients have dealt with inflation, supply chain issues, rising interest rates, puzzling tax codes, and a lot more. It feels good for the firm to be recognized at a national level by our peers for helping our clients succeed.”

415 Group is one of 240 firms across the country to be recognized in both the tax and accounting services categories. In Ohio, the firm was once again one of only eight winners to be recognized for both categories.

To compile the list of recommended firms, Forbes partnered with Statista, a market research company. They conducted broad surveys among CPAs, enrolled agents, tax attorneys, accountants, and CFOs—as well as their clients—for nearly two months. For the final analysis, about 4,500 recommendations were considered. The Forbes lists were compiled based on this data and additional company data.
