NYC Startup and Freelancer Tax CPA Extraordinaire!

NYC Startup and Freelancer Tax CPA Extraordinaire!


Taxes are like tattoos: Sure, you can do them yourself, but you’ll never regret hiring a professional. I'm that guy for taxes. (Interestingly enough, I also have some tattoos. But I hired a professional for that, too.)  

I'm a Certified Public Accountant based in New York City. I like empowering people to learn more about their tax obligations, record-keeping, and all the awesome tax law that might help you save money.

And my visor doesn’t fall far from the tree. My father—and partner—Andy Burton, is also a CPA, and runs the Florida branch of Burton & Co. 

Although I focus on startups, small businesses, and individuals, I'm down for taxes, accounting, and audits of all shapes and sizes. Give me a call, shoot me an email, or visit me in person on Broad Street.



I built a free tax tool to help answer some of your most pressing tax code questions. Try it for yourself. Walk away smarter.

Does Dave have a lot of accounting experience?
Sure does. Dave went to the University of Florida where he received a Master’s of Accounting and Bachelor’s of Science graduating Cum Laude from the Fisher School of Accounting, a top-10 nationwide accounting program. Then he worked at Ernst & Young focusing on tax compliance for asset management, hedge funds, private equity, and high net-worth individuals. He also spent time as the Fund Accountant for Scopia Capital, a $5B hedge fund, where he built custom tools to monitor wash sales, straddles, QDI, QCCs, and more fun stuff like LT capital gains.

Do you have to live in New York or Florida to work with Dave?
Definitely not. CPAs can prepare tax returns for all 50 states and with the wonderful world of technology, we can build a wonderful pen-pal business relationship from sea to shining sea!

Does Dave really use one of those Nintendo-sized printing calculators?
You betcha.  He has a paper jam the other day. Things got messy.

Does Dave actually wear a green visor when he crunches numbers?
Yes, but only for fun.
