John F. Morrissey began his public accounting career in 1968. He founded John Morrissey Accountants, Inc. in 1972 in the basement of his home. At the time, John made a 3 month commitment to himself – if things didn’t work out, he would give up his dream of owning his own accounting practice. Thirty six years later, John Morrissey Accountants has grown exponentially through new business and client relationships, accounting practice acquisitions and market share expansion.
Through this growth, John Morrissey Accountants has remained committed to delivering quality customer service. We believe that we provide quality service, advice and most importantly, a friend in the tax and accounting business.
Today, as one of the largest accounting firms in the region, John Morrissey Accountants serve a wide array of clients in Northern Illinois and the surrounding area. With more than 17 accounting professionals and offices in two locations and markets, John Morrissey Accountants provide financial expertise in all areas of tax planning, tax preparation, accounting, consulting, and business related financial services to businesses and individuals.
Our business clients include corporations, professionals, partnerships and family-owned businesses. Our personal tax clients come from all walks of life and are looking for the best tax advice and preparation in order to minimize taxes and increase income.
