Kyla Hansen at JAKcpas was absolutely fantastic and we would not have succeeded in closing the deal without her. I can confidently endorse her and her team for purchase price and working capital related analysis and negotiations. In my opinion, she and her team are the best I’ve worked with in the Twin Cities.

I brought a friend of mine to Taurinskas Law Firm today as he is so reliable and I appreciated his referral to me of JAK and Cindy. It was hard for me to find a reliable and capable CPA. I can’t tell you how relieved I am to have the services of JAK and Cindy and Jonathan! You are also very efficient and pleasant.

You guys rock. You have been doing my taxes since 1986 and I would be nothing without you.

Once again you have responded in what I can only call an exceedingly quick turn-around and thoroughly answered all my questions.

Working with Todd Koch, Joy McAdoo and the JAK team has been a rewarding experience for me and my firm. Their direction and advice in financial planning/reporting, banking relationships and tax planning (both corporate and personal) has been invaluable. Todd, in particular, has been a trusted advisor in many strategic corporate and personal decisions over the course of my professional life, one of which culminated in the planning and process of the sale of my company to an ESOP Trust.

Minger Construction has been with JAK for over 30 years. Starting out as a small construction company they helped set up our accounting and bookkeeping; and as Minger had grown they have grown with us as well. We feel that we are more than just an accounting client. Over the decades we have a trust of their tax knowledge and appreciate the work they do and the professional friendships formed over the years.
