About Us

About Our Firm

In June 1990, Penny Fausey formed Penny J. Fausey, CPA, PC, a full service tax and accounting firm, in Fenton, Michigan, based on the philosophy that people come first.

From providing exemplary service to clients to a great working environment for her team, she follows this philosophy in every level of the practice.

In 1998, she changed the name to Fausey & Associates, PC, to reflect the outstanding attributes contributed by the other team members. 

Our Mission

Fausey & Associates mission is to provide for our Clients and Team Members the knowledge, resources and timely support necessary to help them achieve their business and professional goals.

Understanding and serving the needs of both groups is the reason we, as a firm, exist and is fundamental to our firm’s success.

In all areas of our practice we understand that quality is not an accident and that trust and respect are our greatest tools.

Our Ideal Client

We enjoy working with business owners who have an open mind and are willing to accept ideas to help them develop their business. 

These owners must have a vision for their business and they need to be committed to building a better, stronger, more profitable business.
Owners must be aware that the payment of taxation is a consequence of running a successful business. However, through planned tax strategies we will use all our knowledge and experience to minimize any tax payable.
These clients must also be committed to providing a secure working environment for their team and delivering exceptional customer service.
