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. Though we continue to expand and grow with a distributed team, we remain in a home-based office, designed to reduce overhead cost and make client meetings both easily accessible and comfortable.
Jeff received his CA/CPA designation in 2004 and had worked in several private and public companies before branching out to start his own accounting firm.

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