About George J. Smith, CPA

George began his career in public accounting as a coop student at Drexel University with two public accounting firms in Philadelphia, PA. Upon earning a Bachelor of Business Administration with an accounting core, he accepted a position with a rapidly expanding firm in Bala Cynwyd, PA. He became a Certified Public Accountant in 1978. Desiring to seek more challenging professional opportunities, he enrolled in the evening school at Widener University and earned a Masters of Science in Taxation. He transitioned from auditing to full-time tax work by joining a tax department of a national accounting firm. Within three years he was promoted to Tax Supervisor.

Upon moving to Ocean City to fulfill a life-long dream of living at the shore, George became a “one-man” tax department for a local accounting firm. In 1985, he passed the bar examination of the United States Tax Court in Washington, D.C. He started George J. Smith, P.C. because he believed Ocean City needed an accounting office that provided the highest quality services with an emphasis on personal relationships.
