Nicole, Rick, and team are fantastic. This team continues to refine their knowledge and understanding of the changing tax environment. They've helped me personally, and I've seen them work magic with many of my clients. Thanks!

We have been working with JBA for the past seven years and have been extremely pleased with their professionalism, tax planning advice, and proactive approach. And between using their Zoom meetings and sharing needed information through their portal, they are very easy to do business with.

I started working with Nicole almost 10 years ago. Her and Rick have been so helpful with the never ending tax changes. We are business owners and have rental properties so our taxes can get pretty complicated. We know we’re in good hands with them! 🙂

Jeff Baker and Associates (JBA) has been my go-to CPA for years. They are always responsive and professional. I trust my biggest clients to JBA...they are simply the best! Did I mention you can call them and someone picks up the phone? That, itself, is a rare occurance these days.Diane Jensen and Company, LLC

It has been extremely easy to work with these People. Seth and Nicole have been great to work with and for. They initially reached out to us (ProEnd Painting), for some painting of some new offices and have since given us several other jobs. As a contractor, I couldn't ask for a better customer and would definitely trust them to take care of our own business needs. I don't know of another firm with more hustle or a better energy. You will be very happy if you choose JBA for your business!

My wife and I have been customers' of this wonderful firm since 1983. We are both self employed and also manage a trust. The guidance, expertise and care that Rick Peterson and his team have been able to provide us is invaluable. Look no further for your accounting and or financial advice needs.

Nicole and her team are incredible. Friendly, smart and very patient. Never look forward to tax time but at least with this team I know the process will be smooth and the results will be accurate.
