Paul, Phipps, & Co, PLLC has been in the business of helping people achieve their individual and business financial goals since January 1, 2000 but the story of Paul, Phipps, & Co, PLLC goes back much further than that. Way back to 1988 when Wayne Paul hired a green young man named James Phipps, still in college working on his accounting degree. That was the beginning of a very rewarding relationship that has lasted and endured these many years. Just ask either one of them to tell you how they met. They will be happy to oblige. In the many years that have gone by our firm has enabled many young people to achieve their career goals. We are firm believers in mentoring our young people and offer paid internships each year. Giving them the skills they need to succeed is just our way of giving something back to our community.
Wayne A. Paul obtained his degree in accounting and tax, his CPA, and an MBA. He served in the U.S. Army where he worked as an auditor of govemment contractors and then worked at Ernst and Ernst in Pittsburgh, PA. He moved to Texas in 1972 to open his own public accounting firm in Lake Jackson and later in Alvin. Throughout the years, he has focused on small business accounting, planning, auditing, and as a knowledgeable representative in tax cases.
James T. Phipps started his career in accounting in that time tested way – baptism by fire. “Get in there and figure it out young man,” he was told. So he did and he is still doing just that for his many clients. He loves a challenge and will strive to serve you well. He was born in Virginia and moved to Texas in 1985. He graduated from U of H in 1990. During his 25 years as a CPA he has provided clients with innovative solutions to the most complex business problems. His primary focus is income tax preparation, business consulting, and financial audits.
Jodie G. Jones joined our firm in 2014. She was born in Texas but grew up in Oklahoma. She attended Texas A&M and U of H and graduated in 1998. Her career began in a local firm whose primary clientele was government and non-profits. For many years she has focused on small to mid-sized business with audit and corporate taxation. She is experienced in business controllership, audit, other attestation engagements, as well as mergers and acquisitions. Her primary focus is tax preparation, planning, and consulting.
