About Us

Welcome to the web site of Erpelding, Voigt & Co., L.L.P. - a full service CPA and consulting firm. For more than 40 years, we have been providing tax preparation, business planning, financial reporting services and personal financial planning. As a progressive accounting firm employing the latest technologies, we have developed a reputation for professional excellence through the consistent high quality services we provide. We bring a wealth of knowledge and value to each of our clients.

Our firm's vision, which incorporates professional service with personal and community involvement has, and will continue to, propel Erpelding, Voigt & Co., L.L.P., to the forefront of the business community. Our guiding philosophy is to provide clients with the highest professional service. We invest in our employees and instill in each of them a strong sense of client service and commitment. We work with our clients, not just for them. We believe our personal relationships with our clients are our strongest asset.

Erpelding, Voigt & Co., L.L.P.'s foundation was started by Tom Erpelding in 1974 when he opened a small CPA firm in Algona, Iowa. The firm built its reputation from its original philosophy which included a strong emphasis on quality. The firm has grown significantly over the last 40 plus years to currently include 48 firm members, 23 being CPA's. There are currently offices in Algona, Buffalo Center, Humboldt, Okoboji and Fairmont, MN. The firm's focus has also dramatically changed over the years from primarily minimizing income and estate taxes to today's full service approach.

When the firm was formed, we adopted a philosophy of providing high quality professional service, maintaining high professional standards and contributing hard work and performance to our clients. Today, we continue this philosophy in the process of listening to our clients and helping to solve their problems.

We currently serve over 4,000 small to mid-sized clients and still maintain an emphasis on quality. Our services range from solving problems related to payroll taxes to performing a complex estate plan. We also address the practical issue of personal financial planning which is becoming even more essential at an early age.
