Our Story

ACCOUNTING AND TAX GROUP has a long history in Portage County. Our experienced team of accountants, bookkeepers, payroll specialists, and marketing professionals have a deep understanding of the business climate and take pride in helping businesses and individuals thrive.

Founded in the late 1980s, the business started out specializing in small business accounting, bookkeeping, consulting, and tax services right out of the gate.

Decades later, although our firm is much larger, and the personnel are different, we are still true to our roots. In 2018, Dean DeFilippo became the owner of the business. Dean has been in the financial services industry for over 18 years and is a Certified Financial Planner and an Enrolled Agent.

We still offer accounting, bookkeeping, tax, and consulting services to small and medium sized businesses across the region. We also have a very successful payroll division within our business that services the same clients.
