Bauknight Pietras & Stormer is thrilled to be named to the “shortlist” of finalists in the “CPA Firm” and “Captive Tax Specialist” categories for the 2017 U.S. Captive Awards.

Nominations were open to all CPA firms servicing US parented captives. Judges pay particular attention to examples of efficiencies in areas such as GAAP, statutory auditing, and tax reporting. The judges also look for CPA firms that can show a clear understanding of their client's specific and unique requirements. The winners will be announced on August, 7, 2017 at the U.S. Captive Awards Ceremony held at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington, Vermont.

The US Captive Awards program was created by Captive Review. Now in its 6th year, the Awards continue to recognize and reward providers of captive insurance products and services who have outperformed their competitors and demonstrated the highest levels of excellence over the past twelve months. The judging process is rigorous and thorough to ensure that all the entries receive full consideration and that the true winners are chosen.
