Our clients say

Plante Moran's staff has always been very helpful to us in many aspects of our business. From the partners down to first year CPA's, they answer our tax and business questions - or get the answer quickly. They are respectful and efficient. Plante Moran team members are much more than just tax preparers. They advise and inform their clients of changes in the tax law, and the effects of those changes on business decisions.
