Carmel, Ind. (August 25, 2014) – INSIDE Public Accounting’s (IPA’s) annual Best of the Best recognition honors 50 CPA firms across the country for their overall superior financial and operational performance on more than 70 IPA criteria.

The IPA Best of the Best CPA firms demonstrate long-term consistency and exceptional performance. In any economy – up or down – clues for what to do, where to focus and how to practice can be found in the IPA Best of the Best.
