About

Deborah Jacobson

General
Since 1979, I have focused my practice on providing taxation and consulting services to individuals, small business, trusts and non-profits in the Pioneer Valley.

Areas of concentration include self-employment, real estate investment and management, academia, artists/craftspeople and farmers.

I also have extensive experience assisting clients with the design and implementation of recordkeeping systems and helping them use their financial data to evaluate business and investment performance.

Not just another bean counter....
I believe in empowering clients to understand and “own” as much as they can about their taxes and accounting, preferring a fully collaborative mode of interaction, as opposed to the authoritarian professional model sometimes experienced in a CPA office.

To further this goal, I have intentionally kept my practice small so I can continue to provide the highest level of personal attention to my clients.  I pride myself on maintaining the maximum degree of accessibility, even during the stresses of tax season.
