Randy Jessup, CPA - Partner

Randy Jessup, a Gainesville native, has over 19 years of experience concentrated in partnership, corporate, fiduciary and individual taxation. Randy firmly believes tax consulting should be proactive rather than reactive and that the time to learn the tax implications of a business decision is before the decision is made.  He particularly enjoys tax planning and research, and consulting clients on entity selection and structure.

Randy’s primary focus is working with closely held businesses and their owners in a variety of industries including energy, technology, professional services, real estate and construction.

What does Exceeding Client Expectations. Always. Mean to You?

It comes down to a mind-set in how we approach our client's business and personal finances throughout the year. We want to be a year-round business advisor and not just someone who prepares your taxes at year-end. Exceeding expectations means being proactive in offering creative tax solutions. It means communicating expected results so there are no surprises at tax time. It means being able to provide practical advice about the issues that are most worrisome to business owners.

Paying taxes is not a pleasurable experience, but dealing with your CPA should be. We are a personal service business and I believe in taking your finances personally.
