About Our Partners
Frank Haarlander, CPA, MS-Tax, MBA
We understand what our clients want and need. Individuals want to pay less in taxes, pay for their children’s college education, and retire comfortably. Business owners want to know how to make more money, cut costs of doing business, avoid taxes, grow their business, find inexpensive ways to fund that business growth, and retire early. If you feel that you are not receiving full value from your accountant, the best way to achieve your goals is to work with an experienced tax professional who wants to exceed your expectations.
Frank Haarlander, a CPA, is a co-founder of Keystone Financial Solutions, P.C. located in Exton, PA. His firm’s focus is to enable individuals and small business owners to succeed by ensuring that they use effective tax strategies to pay the lowest taxes allowed by law and to build wealth.
To provide new business owners with a planning guide to enable them to succeed and existing businesses to reinvent themselves, Frank and his son, Bryan, wrote the book “EMPOWER Your Business to Reach Its Full Potential, Your Road Map to Planning and Executing a Successful Business.” Having worked with hundreds of business owners and seeing the challenges they faced and mistakes made, this book provides business owners with a step-by-step guide to achieve financial success.

Frank is a member of the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers and he receives much personal satisfaction helping good people who have fallen upon difficult times to get back to living a normal life without the fear of the IRS garnishing their wages or levying their assets.
Frank was a Tax and Audit Attest Consultant for Price WaterhouseCoopers, a prestigious international accounting, tax and consulting firm, and held the Vice President of Tax or Tax Director senior tax officer position with several Fortune 500 companies, including GE Capital and Time Warner Communications.
