Hi everyone! My name is Steve Brooks. The CQA stands for Certified QuickBooks Advisor! No, I am not a CPA but a CQA! as I tell all my clients. However, I have credentials and training to qualify me to take the CPA exam I just never have sat for the exam since I chose a different career path. While in college (many years ago) I was preparing to enter the field of aviation. While studying to achieve a BBA in Aviation Management I took several elective courses that led to an almost second major in Accounting (one course shy - Auditing II). It was while attending college that I worked as a Junior Accountant for a local CPA firm assisting in tax preparation (using one of the first computer prepared tax preparation systems - 80 column IBM cards and all!). I then went into the military upon college graduation and became a B-52 pilot for the USAF. Twenty-one years later I retired from the USAF and was hired by American Airlines and just recently retired from that position as B-767/B-757 Captain. I now have turned my part time tax preparation and bookkeeping services into a third career using ProSeries tax preparation software and QuickBooks consulting services. I look forward to offering whatever expertise I can to this forum and I look forward to interacting with all those that are a part of this fine project. Please visit my website at http://www.qbresourcenepa.com - you will be treated to a young fellow and his 'go fast' airplane.

Good morning, Steve, and welcome to TaxAlmanac! It looks like you've been busy this morning adding information about yourself to the User Introduction page as well as to this User Introduction Discussion Forum. The forum was just implemented last week and we're still migrating from the old system to the forum. You might want to also add your information to your personal user page. You can get to it by clicking on your login name at the very top of the screen or the link at the top of your post above. Whenever you make an edit in the forums, it creates that link. This makes it easy for people to click on your name and learn something about you.

Enjoy - and please let me know if you have any suggestions on how we might improve the site.
