About Sechler CPA PC

Sechler, CPA, PC is a totally virtual accounting firm based in Phoenix, AZ. The entire team works from their homes which are located primarily in AZ but also Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Vancouver. Established over 25 years ago, Sechler, CPA PC serves the tax and consulting needs of approximately 350 local, national and international nonprofit organizations. This firm's expertise is in working with founders and leaders of organizations to develop the initial applications for nonprofit status as well as their annual compliance, troubleshooting, planning and visionary work throughout the year.

We became a B Corporation business because we feel that our values match and this is an outer proclamation of how we live and work every day. We went 'virtual’ nearly 20 years ago and our team continually looks for ways to internally be more innovative, cost and process efficient, and to share these same leveraging and conscious skills with our clients. We are deeply committed to our clients and our community as evidenced by our extensive pro bono work, volunteer work, and yearly sponsorships.

The Change We Seek®

Sechler CPA PC strives to lead by example. The firm shows the possibilities and opportunities presented when committing to energy efficiency and coupled with alternative work styles. This firm strengthens their relationships by taking time to gain a deeper understanding of their client’s mission, vision and values so as to deliver mindful, custom and fully integrated education, training and support throughout the year.
