Jim All has been a licensed CPA since January 2006. Jim graduated from The Ohio State University in 2001 with a degree in business administration majoring in accounting. Jim first started with the firm in June of 1997, as a high school senior, through participation in a school co-op program. Jim gained experience working for the firm part-time throughout his time at Ohio State, and then accepted a position with the firm after graduation. Jim sat for what was at the time, the new computerized CPA exam, in late 2004 and early 2005 and was able to pass all four parts on the first attempt.
Jim has worked with many of our clients over the years, preparing tax returns, conducting tax planning for both individuals & businesses, assisting and overseeing accounting software implementation, training, and support, and many other projects. The part of this profession that Jim finds the most fun (and challenging) is the scope – working with so many different individuals and businesses, in various industries, on a broad range of financial-related issues. The long-term relationship that we have an opportunity to form with our clients is what he enjoys the most. Jim and his wife have three young children that keep them pretty busy. When not spending time with them, he enjoys running, biking, golf, and an unhealthy addiction to Chicago sports teams.
