Exciting News for Altitude CPA Clients!

As the owner of Altitude CPA, I wanted to make you all aware of a thrilling new development…

Over the last few years, I have been working closely with the owners and staff at Barringer & Rickords. Some of you have even met with me in their office located at 617 N 17th Street, Suite 100, Colorado Springs, CO 80904.

After many discussions, and a lot of consideration, we have decided to merge Altitude CPA with Barringer & Rickords. For now, the name of the newly merged company will be Barringer & Rickords PC, with the potential to change once tax season is over. The owners of Barringer & Rickords are me (Mayzie Brown), Hal Barringer, and Dan Rickords.

I understand that change can sometimes be concerning, but this merger should only result in some minor changes to Altitude CPA’s existing clients. The biggest change most of my clients will notice: you will have a new phone number available to contact me. Since Barringer & Rickords is a bigger firm with a receptionist, this will only be a benefit to you! While you will still be able to reach me using my cell phone number as you have in the past, you can also reach me at the main office number — 719-444-0770. I will continue to be available at my existing email address ( but I can also be emailed using And anyone communicating with Reeda can find her at or

Another minor change clients will notice is that your invoices will now be sent by Barringer & Rickords. If you already have invoices outstanding with me, please make those payments to Altitude CPA.

Finally, I wanted to make you aware that as of 2/1/2022, we will have a temporary north location to accommodate our clients coming from the north during tax season. This temporary office will be available during February and March and is located at 1755 Telstar Dr, Suite 300, Colorado Springs, CO 80920. You can continue to schedule appointments for either location, or phone, here: Request Appointment

I will continue to be your primary contact for all of your tax, bookkeeping, and payroll needs but I hope you will be pleased with your interactions with the incredible staff at Barringer & Rickords.

I endeavor to make this transition nothing but a positive experience for you, please email or call with any questions or concerns.
