Aaron B. Ness

I enjoy so many things about Eide Bailly. From the people and clients, to the responsibility I'm given over my career path, the Firm provides me with all the opportunities for success.


Aaron joined Eide Bailly in 1998 and specializes in serving clients in the affordable housing and nonprofit industries. He oversees the review of more than 275 affordable housing audits and 40 final cost certifications and carryovers each year. His experience includes audits of public housing authorities, multifamily HUD, Rural Development and low-income housing tax credit projects.

When he's not working on an audit or a tax credit project for one of his clients, Aaron spends as much of his free time with his family as he can. He likes to stay active by playing softball, basketball and golf (there's a lot of extra walking involved looking for lost balls). Aaron is also an active member of his church.
