Phil Fleishman is the owner of PAS Bookkeeping & Tax Prep Inc and Fleishman & Associates CPA Firm Inc in Florida. An accountant for over 30 years, he has corporate, government, and public accounting experience that he brings to PAS Bookkeeping & Tax Prep. A Charleston native, Phil returned to Charleston 13 years ago to form PAS Bookkeeping & Tax Prep to bring an emphasis to a client based tax firm as opposed to a firm based tax firm.
A graduate of the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in 1987, Phil already had 2 years of experience as an accountant when he graduated. From there he worked for a large regional CPA firm for 2 years as a Staff Accountant specializing in multiple state income tax returns for individuals and businesses. After an additional 10 years as a self employed accountant and a government contractor, Phil found himself as the CFO of mid-sized company in Cleveland, Ohio involved, primarily, in the lodging and commercial rental industries along with other small businesses including a family CPA firm. In 2004 Phil returned to Charleston to raise his daughter.
In 2010 Phil began hosting a regional television program on tax, economic, and general business called "Just Phil Tax Program" airing on several different networks. Many have found Phil's unique perspective and outlook regarding tax and business, in general, very interesting and consistently correct. Consequently, Phil began lecturing on a number of different topics not restricted to just tax and accounting issues.
Phil is a commissioned officer in the South Carolina State Guard and is involved with many charitable organizations and board of directors throughout the Charleston SC area and is often seen simply walking around Charleston. If you see him walking around, Phil is always happy to answer questions or sign autographs.
