About Us

In 1981, Verlon L. McKay, CPA, started what became known as McKay & Carnahan, Inc. Previously, Verlon had been a partner and Regional Tax Coordinator with a national CPA firm. In 1987, William T. Carnahan, CPA joined the firm. He too had been a partner in a national CPA firm and specialized in accounting and assurance services. Other members of the management team include Alan McKay, CPA, and Cheryl McKay Moffatt, CPA. The varying backgrounds of the individuals in the management group allow the firm to be a "full professional services CPA firm". The firm maintains personal relationships with each client while providing timely high quality services. For example, under the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' quality review program, all reports on the firm's quality control system have been unqualified.
