best Quickbooks CPA

QuickBooks users from many countries often contact us for efficient accounting, bookkeeping, tax cuts and near 24/7 support. There is no other QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor with comparable credentials below:

A Charter member: Intuit QuickBooks and ProSeries Tax Advisory Councils

I intensely used and supported QuickBooks since inception. I helped change Intuit from actively hostile to QuickBooks add-ons (apps), to making them a #1 company goal. There were soon nine million web links to QuickBooks add-ons, counting words like apps and integrate (14 million on 11/24/16). They save time, save money, increase accuracy and can stop you from outgrowing QuickBooks.

No. 1 Quickbooks Top Tester

I am the only two-time winner of #1 QuickBooks Top Tester prize. Test pre-release features and bugs. Master QuickBooks changes long before others see them and discuss to top developers to shape QuickBooks changes. I got 412 test points vs 215 for the #2 tester and only 25 for average testers. Intuit dropped points upon my suggestion (my results discouraged other testers). Therefore, that makes me the only QuickBooks Top Tester.

Successful Occasional Intuit Opponent

There was a payroll update fees on each QuickBooks company file, not each QuickBooks copy. We fought against these fees and succeed. As published on CNET: This major victory… was almost certainly caused by a gigantic hue and cry… Block… is the moderator of the discussion group and led the battle against the new fees.

“You’re Fantastic Mike. Absolutely Fantastic!”

The former Intuit (QuickBooks) CEO Steve Bennett later wrote, “Keep raising hell when Intuit does something wrong!” Steve told current CEO Brad Smith to contact me before Brad came to Intuit. Brad wrote, “told by many Intuit executives that you have been quite open to taking the time to assist Intuit, are a tremendous voice of reason and are one of our most impactful and innovative Professional Advisors.” He later added, “You’re fantastic Mike. Absolutely fantastic!

QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor (QCPA)

I am a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor (QCPA or Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor) since inception. Most QuickBooks consultants buy Uncertified QuickBooks ProAdvisor (QPA) titles with no training or tests or by having some QuickBooks Online clients. This is tragic, as Intuit admitted that ALL Advisor complaints involved Uncertified QPAs. Intuit surveys also showed that extra QPA charges, vs self-designated QuickBooks consultants, were more than a billion dollars a year. This quickly dropped when it dropped QPAs from the Find-An-Accountant list, but soon got reversed.

Intuit once had CPA continuing education credit for QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor (QCPA) tests that listed wrong answers after each test. You could then get 100% by first answering all A, then all B, etc., WITHOUT reading questions. That stopped after my conference call with Brad Smith and a national CPA test authority.

Here are some of my significant contributions as professional advisor:

  1. Intuit benchmarked the two of my web pages to its early QuickBooks website and created two websites upon my request.
  2. Intuit QuickBooks ask the me, regarded as Expert, three times mainly for Speeding up QuickBooks.
  3. On 11/24/16 Google had 272,000 and 657,000 links to web pages with QuickBooks errors Mike Block.
  4. Wrote more than 10,000 mainly QuickBooks newsgroup and forum answers, most when QuickBooks had little web presence; first Intuit QuickBooks blog by a non-Intuit employee.
  5. First Intuit sponsored QuickBooks user group (South Florida QuickBooks Meetup was long the largest).
  6. Repeatedly requested tech-support backed user-to-user forums, for faster and better answers. That let Intuit cut 14% of employees (later cuts made them less useful).

Public Tax Cut Efforts

  1. Tax cut petition leader (1975 – 1994). Co-wrote and led petitions changing Florida Constitution, election laws and national petition practices; lead author: Proposition #1, The economic and legal issues, sponsored by the University of Florida; successfully argued petition before the Florida Supreme Court.
  2. Led successful effort to get Florida Senator Chiles (“Now get Block off my back”) voting for the Balanced Budget Amendment, almost passing it.
  3. Led successful effort to repeal defective Florida container tax.
  4. Elected Broward County Port Commissioner (Fort Lauderdale – Hollywood, Florida; gave back salary as promised).

Featured in Publications

Besides many stories on public tax cut efforts, below are some publications that featured my other works:

  1. CNET, as discussed above (Successful Occasional Intuit Opponent).
  2. Business Week, online services.
  3. PCMagazine. The nine-page cover story, online services.
  4. Accounting Technology Magazine, cover story (now Accounting Today).

Other Recognition

  1. Florida State Board of Accountancy: The people of Florida owe you a debt of gratitude.
  2. Was #3 in U.S. Xero clients. Rod Drury, Xero CEO, “Stoked to finally meet our angriest fan @MikeBlockCPA, who often SENDS ME EMAILS IN CAPS. Hi Mike”


That is only a partial list, so it is clear that no QuickBooks CPA has these credentials. Please contact the best QuickBooks CPA, for a free initial consultation and review.
