Stephen DiChiara

At Stephen R. DiChiara CPA Inc., the entire team is ready to assist individual taxpayers and small businesses with their taxes. With  over 30 years of experience as a CPA, Stephen DiChiara works tirelessly to find tax loopholes and maximize refunds for his clients. He is also well versed in everything from figuring which form of entity is right for your business to making sure you are taking advantage of the ever-changing tax laws. Due to his extensive knowledge, understanding of tax laws, and dedication to his clients Stephen DiChiara is our new Expert of the Month!

Stephen DiChiara attained his CPA certificate at the age of 23, which is the youngest you can earn one! DiChiara took over his father’s practice, and quickly expanded the business. In 1992, he purchased the former Central Credit Union building on Smith Street in North Providence.

The firm has four employees that quickly respond to clients’ questions because they know that communication is key. DiChiara states that “It is the best practice to contact your CPA before making any significant business decisions. A lot of my business clients are the sole decision makers, so it makes sense for them to have someone they trust to bounce ideas off of.” At the end of the day, his “greatest joy in this business is helping clients grow and become successful.” DiChiara believes that this quality makes his firm stand out from others.

When asked what he likes about working with us, DiChiara responded, “The people! They are always patient and accommodating and whatever the issue is it gets resolved in a timely fashion.” He continues, “before I was with SNECS, I had a malware issue every year and experienced significant downtime. For the 4 years I’ve been with them, I haven’t had an issue. The peace of mind is well worth the monthly fee!”

If you’re looking for help with your personal or business taxes or want to review your financial goals, Stephen R. DiChiara CPA is ready to lend a hand! DiChiara encourages people to contact a CPA because “with the new tax laws in effect, it is more important than ever to assess whether changing your form of entity is the right choice. What may have been the right choice under the previous laws might not be correct today.”
