Kindly allow me to welcome you to my website and to introduce myself. My name is Edward J. Martone, CPA but everyone who knows me knows me as Ned.
This website is principally designed to provide you with information about my practice and the services I offer. Along with it comes a treasure trove of information and resources.
We've all heard the expression that knowledge is power. I also believe that with knowledge comes opportunity and hopefully you will benefit from an idea spawned from something learned here.
You have my commitment to provide you with a cutting-edge, web-based service. Thank you for visiting my website.
About My Website
Please feel free to browse the website and I encourage you to do so. You will find a number of very useful tools in the Calculators and Resources headings. There are tax, accounting, business and financial strategies, calculators, tables, tax rates and other information in the Tax Center and Resources headings. You may browse by clicking on any heading, looking at drop-downs, or accessing the site map or search function at the bottom of the page.
There is also a monthly newsletter which contains valuable articles designed to keep you abreast of changing laws, regulations and rulings. You might find helpful ideas so I encourage you to visit it monthly. For those of you who have a thirst for knowledge, are eternally curious and wish to venture into the tax world there are a number of web sites, linked here, that will provide you with current tax news.
Finally, there is a client portal. This is a secure, password-protected mechanism for us to exchange, store and access documents, tax returns and financial records. All you need to do is register and set up your own account within the portal.
I graduated from Siena College in 1976 with a Bachelors of Business Administration and have over 36 years of experience in public accounting. My career started by working for a number of local and regional accounting firms, then, in 1983, I started my own practice. Time does fly, yet it doesn’t seem possible that I am now midway through my fourth decade of service in public accounting.
I am a lifelong resident of the Capital District, am an active member of the community and live in Saratoga Springs. When I am not working my personal interests include hiking, running, canoeing and other outdoor adventures, and I can often be found somewhere in the Adirondacks. Lake Placid is a likely place to find me and I actively support ADK, the Adirondack Mountain Club.

My firm provides tax planning and compliance, accounting and business advisory services to a wide range of businesses and organizations, of every size, and to individuals, not only here in the Capital Region but in many other states as well.
