Community Engagement

About David Auer CPA

David Auer CPA is based in Tulsa, OK. He is a man that appreciates and recognizes how necessary community engagement is. The founder of Provident CPAs, also based in Tulsa, OK, David makes sure that he focuses just as much energy on community engagement as he does on his work.

David and his team at Provident CPAs work together to help business owners save as much money as possible. They take a three-pronged approach to working with their clients by increasing cash for a business, helping that business grow profitably, and then assisting leaders in creating a plan so they can exit well. 

David originally earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Oklahoma State University, and then went on to receive his MS in Accounting. Afterwards, he earned his JD with honors from Oklahoma University College of Law, and later his LLM in Taxation from New York University School of Law. This education helped give David the foundation he needed to go above and beyond in serving businesses in Tulsa, OK. 

Throughout his 30+ year career, David Auer CPA has found that many successful business owners don’t have anyone proactively telling them ways to save money when doing taxes. David discovered that through being more proactive, businesses experience increased savings which means more wealth for business owners. David and his team at Provident CPAs help decide the best place to invest so that a business’s savings are put back into the business itself. While some may view this as a simple business service, David views this as more than that. These are opportunities to help his local community get the most out of their life.

By being successful professionally, David believes that his actions will trickle out into the community and be a source of inspiration for other professionals to look at their services and see how they can suit them to the community needs. This inspiration can then become a wave that washes over a community and guides local members to assist wherever they are able to at events like community gardening, a community center that offers programs to benefit younger adults, and even something as simple as helping at the local soup kitchen.

David Auer CPA and his wife of 32 years have three children, all of them currently in college or college graduates, and they love to get together and participate in their community. Sometimes, this takes the form of participating in with their local church for food drives, community outreach, or simply lending a helping hand to someone in need.

As a family, they travel quite a bit. For the entirety of the summer of 2018, David’s daughter spent her time in Europe and obtaining her English as a Second Language (ESL) certificate, upon her return home, regaled her family with his experiences of her travels. When traveling as a family, the Auer family likes to visit Europe, Mexico, Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii. One of David’s favorite travel memories is getting the opportunity to walk across a glacier while visiting in Alberta, Canada in July.
