Professional services with a personal touch.


About Scott McRuer

The McRuer CPAs team has decades of experience working with Businesses and Individuals providing comprehensive tax preparation and planning services as well as a wide range of accounting needs.  I’m proud to be a part of this team as we celebrate more than 30 years of service.

I’m an accounting and tax strategy expert, a business growth strategist and a wealth management specialist. I'm also a board certified public accountant and earned my accounting degree from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. My priority is to ensure that all of us at McRuer CPAs provide the kind of service that goes beyond what’s expected.

I believe the best business practices for a CPA firm have to do with being professional, accurate and prompt.  At McRuer CPAs, we are all of that and more.

What makes us uniquely successful is that we stay personable, approachable and truly want to do all we can to help our business clients grow their bottom line and our individual clients realize their financial dreams.

We’ve put together a team of people who understand that money is not what you’re working for. Instead, we know it’s a tool that our clients use to enjoy the things in life that matter most to them. Things like family, friends and community.

I truly enjoy helping my community. I’m a member of a number of community and civic organizations and I think it’s important to take my role as a business leader seriously. For a time I was honored to serve as City Alderman Ward 2 for Parkville, Missouri, where I worked to promote the values of my constituents as well as used my expertise to guide my votes on the city's critical budget issues.

Yet I try to keep a healthy balance of fun in my life as a car buff, a volunteer for the Boy Scouts, an active Rotarian and a pal to my dachshund Oscar. He’s affectionately known as The Tax Hound.

Some of my memberships and leadership positions include or have included:  Park University Board Chair, Treasurer for the Board, and Finance Committee Chairman; Board Chair for Pryor Learning Solutions, Inc.; Chairman and President of the Park Hill School District Educational Foundation; Director of the Clay/Platte Development Corporation; Commissioner of the Platte County Board of Zoning Adjustment; Director and Treasurer of the Briarcliff Community Alliance; Director and Treasurer of the Banneker School Foundation; Member of the Platte Profile 2020 Strategic Planning Team; Member of the Platte County Pachyderms Club; Member of the Platte County Citizens Coalition;  Troop Committee Member, Chapter Audit Committee Member, Chartered Organization Representative and District Member at Large for the Boys Scouts of America-Heart of America Council; Board Chair, President, Treasurer and Member of Parkville Rotary Club and Rotary Charities; Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer of the Platte County Economic Development Council, Inc.; Planned Giving Committee Member, Audit Committee Member, Staff/Parish Relations Committee Member and Member of Platte Woods United Methodist Church;  Member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants; Director and Treasurer of the Spelman Medical Foundation; Member of the Northland, Parkville, Riverside and Liberty Area Chambers of Commerce; Director of Chapter Finance and Strategic Planning Committees of the Greater Kansas City Chapter of the American Red Cross; Company Advisor for Junior Achievement of Kansas City; Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters; and Director and Treasurer for the Main Street Parkville Association.

I hope you’ll consider the McRuer CPAs Team for your accounting, financial planning and tax preparation services.
