Mauldin & Jenkins LLC has acquired Plush Smith PA, a Sarasota, Florida, accounting and consulting firm. This acquisition increases Mauldin & Jenkins’ office locations to nine across the Southeast. The firm has an office in Birmingham.
Plush Smith has provided tax, financial reporting and consulting services to individuals, fiduciaries, commercial businesses and other organizations since 2011. Its success will add to the wealth services of Mauldin & Jenkins.
“We are very excited about this acquisition and increasing our firm’s presence in the growing Sarasota market. Plush Smith’s reputation for excellent client service aligns well with our firm’s core values and mission,” said Wade Sansbury, partner, Florida practice leader for Mauldin & Jenkins.
In addition to the acquisition, Mauldin & Jenkins has launched Sales Tax Simplified (StaxS), a new sales and use tax preparation service that focuses on eliminating sales tax burdens for business owners.
“Sales Tax Simplified was created to fill the void of sales tax return filing,” said Jeff Dorris, CPA, who will lead the initiative for the firm. “Sales tax software companies provide tax returns, but they don’t know your name or your business. At StaxS, we know who you are and what you do. Not only do we provide return filing services, we also help our clients with all aspects of sales and use tax compliance and planning, all for a competitive price.”
