Elizabeth B. Gierhart, CPA

My job is to help you realize your goals. For small business owners, I do those annoying jobs that allow them to concentrate on running their businesses and meeting their goals. I help families and individuals achieve their current goals while planning for their future.

I am a Certified Public Accountant and hold a Masters in Personal Financial Planning. My goal is to make your life easier in the areas of tax preparation and planning, small business set-up and accounting and financial planning. This allows you to work on expanding your business, makes tax season worry-free and allows you to sleep at night knowing your financial house is in order.

As a former military spouse, I have specialized knowledge that can assist military members and families not only in tax preparation but in small business start-up and financial planning. I, also, have a heart to empower military families.

Beth is a native of Irmo, SC. Her family returned to Chapin in 2014 after her husband’s retirement from military service. An accounting graduate from the University of South Carolina, she also holds a Masters in Financial Planning. She has been a CPA since 1996 and is a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and Certified Tax Planner (CTP). She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, American Institute of Certified Tax Coaches and the SC & VA Associations of CPAs. Beth specializes in small business accounting and tax planning as well as financial planning.

In her spare time you will find her exercising or spending time with family. She has been married to her husband, Guy, for twenty-six years.
