JAY-WEST JAY R. WEST, CPA
After studying at Drexel University from 1965 through 1971, including 4 co-operative jobs at the Saturday Evening Post, the IRS, a CPA firm, and a bank, a BS in Accounting and Finance was awarded to me. Positions after graduation included Borg Warner, MWA Inc., Canal Barge, LaPorte, Romig and Hand CPA’s and Medical Equipment Co.
In 1981, I started my own CPA firm and maintained it until selling the business in 2001. After that worked as a controller for Wagner Meats until 2004 when I re-established my own CPA firm.
I have been doing tax work for people since 1968 – 45 years.
In working for people in the tax area, I noticed that the opportunity for helping them with financial planning was right at my fingertips, and I could help clients to save tax dollars and invest the difference in retirement accounts. The thrust of my work became an effort to do this for every one I did a tax return for each year.”
