Joan and Warren Chapman

Warren D. Chapman

Certified Public Accountant (CPA)
Tax Advisor CPA is “Just the Two of Us” – Warren D. Chapman and Joan F. Barton.  We have been doing this together for over 30 years; and we have been doing it quite well, if we do say so ourselves. And, yes, we have been married for almost all of that time. Warren became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in 1983 and has 43 years of experience in Government, Business and Public Accounting.  He is a member of the American Institute of CPAs, the VA Society of CPAs and the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers, as well as MENSA.  He has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Economics from the University of Richmond and a Master of Accountancy from Virginia Commonwealth University, for which he is grateful to the Veterans Administration, the GI bill and the American taxpayers for funding.

Joan F. Barton

Joan has been a bookkeeper, accountant and tax preparer for “a long time”.  She has extensive experience working for Businesses, Non-profit Organizations and in Public Accounting. She has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University – Summa Cum Laude.  (That means that she is really smart.)

We believe that the combination of our similar backgrounds, complementary skills and sometimes different perspectives has proven to be of considerable benefit to our clients.
