About Us

Dollar bills background

Walz & Company, C.P.A.'s, P.C. was formed in 1977 with the overriding objective of providing small business clients with the specialized accounting, tax, and consulting services that they need to achieve their individual goals.

Although we know that each of our clients is unique, we also know that the reasons businesses succeed or fail are not unique. The truth is there really is nothing new about running a profitable small business. Unfortunately, too many good hard working business owners attend the "School of Hard Knocks" when they could have learned from the experience of others.

Our objective is to use the financial statements and tax returns that are required by the IRS and banks as management tools for the future. We believe that "if you can't measure it, you can't manage it."

Our strength is in helping our clients achieve their future goals using accurate historical information and a wealth of experience in knowing what others have done to be successful.

Thank you for your interest in working with our team of tax and accounting advisors. We provide the following services for our clients:

  • Tax return filing and tax planning for individuals
  • C-corporation, S-corporation and partnership tax return filing
  • Bookkeeping and financial statement preparation

Our firm has experience working with the following types of businesses:

  • Professional services firms
  • Real estate firms
  • Manufacturing companies
  • Physician practices
  • High-net-worth individuals

You can trust our staff’s expertise, as they participate in continuing professional education classes offered by local chapters of national tax and accounting associations to keep up with the ever-changing tax law and accounting landscape.

Gregory L. Walz, CPA

Gregory L. Walz, CPA


Greg brings a rare combination of practical hands on experience dating back to his early childhood with the family business, formal education with a B.S. in business administration from Indiana University, eight years employment with an international accounting firm reaching the position of audit manager, ownership of real estate, manufacturing, service, and retail businesses, and has been actively involved with small businesses and their owners as the central part of his CPA practice founded in 1977. He has been a presenter for Wayne State University's "Starting and Running a Profitable Small Business Workshops" and is a "Distinguished Faculty" for Lorman Education Services programs. Unlike the traditional role of the CPA that focuses on recording past history, Greg's view is that the future is where success or failure is determined. Dating back to his high school days he has always viewed the proper role of the CPA as a "doctor for small business" He uses his analytical skills to check on the financial health of his client and if it is not completely healthy he prescribes treatments to fix the problems. He believes that there is nothing new in business and the best way to avoid or solve any pitfall on the road to success is to learn from the experience of others. His sense of humor coupled with a dead serious willingness to say what his experience has taught can be both refreshing and shocking in this world of playing it safe and avoiding the tough truths.
