Here for you. We, as the Jeff Bender Professional Corporation (JBPC) team, are not just interested in accounting and taxes —we are interested in you. Our goal is to provide the kind of personable service that shows you that you aren’t just another number, but a valued client.
Whether you are an entrepreneur in small business or an individual requiring personal tax services, our desire is to eliminate your tax and accounting stress through “down to earth” explanations and teaching, competent work that we stand behind with integrity, and of course, a bit of Jeff’s dry sense of humour thrown in to keep things interesting. We began in 2011 as a husband-and-wife team, working out of our home-based office for many years. As we have continued to expand and grow our team, we recently moved our main office to a new easily accessible location in south-central Edmonton.
We want you to feel like we’ve got your back and are here for you with caring support for all your tax and business accounting needs.

Clients appreciate Jeff’s easily understandable teaching manner mixed in with a dose of humour.
