WE MAKE CLIENT SATISFACTION OUR #1 SERVICE
Jacobs & Company offers a wide range of services to our individual and business clients. Because we focus on service rather than our firm's size, our clients benefit from personalized, quality service that is beyond comparison.
As the following list of services is by no means all-inclusive, please feel free to inquire about a service if you do not see it below. If it is not a service we provide, we would be more than happy to refer you to a qualified professional.
TAX PLANNING & RETURN PREPARATION
Tax Planning & Return Preparation form a winning combination for our successful individual and business clients. Whether you are an individual or a multi-tiered partnership, our experienced staff can develop tax strategies that take advantage of new tax laws and legislation.
ESTATE & TRUST TAX PREPARATION
Effective estate and gift planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.

BUSINESS SUCCESSION PLANNING
Choosing the form of entity of your business (e.g., S corporation, sole proprietor, limited liability company, etc.) is a crucial decision that can have longstanding tax implications, positive and negative. We can assist you in evaluating the pros and cons of each entity type to help you determine the most advantageous form of business for your company.
BUYING & SELLING A BUSINESS

We can help your business identify areas negatively affecting profitability and growth and develop solutions that are practical and technically sound in addition to acting as a sounding board for management. We provide comprehensive, flexible strategies that address the issues affecting your business.
ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE SELECTION & IMPLEMENTATION
With the number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals growing every day, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult.
