Mark Barone is a certified public accountant (CPA) licensed in the state of Arizona, having over nineteen years of direct professional experience. After graduating from the University of Iowa, Mark began his career in Chicago working for two of the Big 4 accounting firms, KPMG and Deloitte & Touche specializing in corporate tax. After relocating to Arizona with Deloitte & Touche Mark decided shortly thereafter to join a mid-size firm in Phoenix not only to further his career goals but to give him the opportunity to work with small businesses and high net worth individuals. Slightly over three years ago, Mark fulfilled his dream of starting his own accounting and tax practice, Barone CPA, with a wide array of client services ranging from bookkeeping to tax planning. Mark is also a seasoned real estate investor who spends a great deal of time working on real estate related entities. He has a very intricate knowledge of the different Caliber investment vehicles and the potential tax implications not only as it relates to himself as a long time investor but for those investors who have also chosen this investment path.
