Donald Watson, CPA
Donald (Don) Watson is a Partner in the Healthcare Services department of HMWC CPAs & Business Advisors. While the department serves many physicians and dentists, Don primarily works with dental clientele. He does this through providing tax preparation, planning/projection services, and consultation for individuals, corporations, and partnerships associated with dental practices. Part of the consultation component includes assistance with new practices, practice purchases, preparation for sale of a practice, and review of practice performance for better profitability.
Due to the constant changes that occur within the tax system, Don devotes the time necessary to stay abreast of issues that aid in providing tax minimization strategies, compliance needs, and answers to uncertain tax issues.
Prior to working at HMWC, Don worked for a small regional firm in the Tri-State market of West Virginia/Ohio/Kentucky. During a twenty-two year career, he progressed from staff accountant to partner. Throughout that period, Don’s emphasis was on corporate and individual taxation, business consulting, tax planning, and computer software support. Some of the industries serviced were real estate management, food & beverage, in addition to a variety of other types of businesses. Don joined HWMC as a senior tax manager in 2015 and was promoted to partner in 2018.
