A Little About Tom
Thomas "Tom" J. Crayton, CPA
Even before Tom graduated from the University of Houston, Clear Lake City, in 1979, his goal was to create a very personalized CPA firm which he started in 1984, the year after he passed the CPA exam. Although Tom has over 30 years experience preparing individual income tax returns and continues to do so, his main interest relates to businesses. His goal is to provide business owners and managers with the tools to increase or maintain sustained profits and pay only their fair share of taxes while at the same time avoiding conflicts with taxing authorities, if possible.
