Rarely, if ever, do I write and post recommendations for anyone on social media. However, if I find someone or some company that goes above and beyone and truly deserves a positive word, I am quick and happy to do it. This is the case with Randy and Holly – Cornerstone Solutions. I was fortunate to find Randy two years ago. At that time, I found myself in what seemed like a horrible unfixable situation. Randy talked me through it, presented a myriad of options – all the while directing me to a smarter and more responsible path to the future. His intelligence, knowledge, honesty, calm and supportive nature were a God send to me and he won me over for life.
He knows what he is doing and has all the experience and background to earn your trust and respect. However, on top of this, it is the manner and patience and warmth that both he and Connie show every step of the way that makes paying taxes not a feared and worrisome responsibility. The two of them truly care about each of us in his Cornerstone family and work as hard for the large huge income corporation as they do about the smallest single filer client such as me.
I can not be happier with my relationship with Cornerstone Solutions and thankful for the help that they have given me and still continue to do. I strongly advise you to contact them and let them do for you what they have done for me and countless others. You can thank me later.

I would highly recommend Randy Rial and Cornerstone Solutions to anybody. They were courteous, helpful, and knowledgeable. Their work was on time and accurate. They also did a great job of identifying some savings on my taxes that I couldn’t possibly have known about. They made the whole process of calculating and filing my taxes simple, which to me is the most valuable quality of a tax consultant.

After years of doing taxes myself I decided to reach out for help. Randy at Cornerstone was recommended to me by a neighbor. I have worked with Randy on my tax preparation for the past 2 years. In that time I have saved myself a lot of time and frustration trying to file taxes myself. Randy has been very helpful, responsive, and fantastic throughout the process. Working with him has been a breeze and I feel good knowing a professional is working on my taxes. I highly recommend him and Cornerstone Solutions!

Frequently asked questions

I want to either meet the client in person or talk with them over the phone, just to get to know each other, and to find out more what their needs are and how I can help them with those needs. I will share with them my plan of action of how I can help them, and then we agree upon a fee. I will set up most of my clients in my Dropbox portal, so they can securely and safely send me all their tax or bookkeeping documents.

I received my BBA in Accounting from Baylor University in 1986 and I shortly thereafter received my CPA license. I worked in the Big Eight public accounting firm, Ernst and Whinney for 2 years in audit. I then spent the next 25 years in the corporate world as a Controller for Fortune 500 companies all the way down to family owned businesses. In 2011, I founded Cornerstone Solutions LLC, where I use my 30 years of accounting experience to help individuals and small business owners.

Every client is unique and different but I normally will charge in the following ranges:

Bookkeeping - $50/hour until we can agree on Fixed Fee

Tax Services -  Individual/Family Tax Returns - $175 - $250

                      Sole Proprietor/LLC Business - $300 - $500

                      1065 Partnership - $500

                      1120/1120 S-Corp - $500

In 2011, I was ready to leave the corporate world, and I began to see so many people starting their own businesses, and having the need for an Accountant to help them get their business set up, accounting system set up, and help them with all their bookkeeping, payroll and tax needs on a monthly basis but without having to hire them as a full time employee but just have them help them several hours a month. I love working with people and to add value to running their business or to help families maximize their tax refund or minimize taxes owed.

I have worked with individuals, families and business owners in regards to all their tax needs and I have worked with small business owners from all types of industries. Many of my new clients do not have a clue of how to structure and set up their business, so that is where I come in to walk along beside them all the way.

This type of scenario has happened recently several times where I am meeting with a new client, and just asking them questions to try to get to know them, and then all of a sudden they become emotional and start crying about a very difficult situation that they are facing, and I ask if I can pray for them right there, and it immediately brings a peace to them, and creates a bonding between us that continues in our business as well as our personal relationships. I want to build relationships for life!

I would advice them to at least talk with me and see if they can quickly become very comfortable and trustworthy of me and that my only goal is to do what is best for them. You will not get the personal relationship with the big tax companies as you would with me. I am always available for them.  I would also encourage them to read all of the many 5-star reviews I have received from my clients on my website at www.mycornerstonesolutions.com.

They should know that it is okay for them to seek the help of a professional because there is no way they can keep up with all the tax law changes or know how to maintain the financials of their business. There is NO dumb question to ask me! I want my clients to understand what their tax returns and financial statements mean.
