The Legacy Continues

By now our clientele is aware that The Office of George Carapella – Taxman has suffered a devastating loss when George Carapella the founder unexpectedly passed away in April 2018. James Carapella, George’s eldest son will be taking over and following in his father’s footsteps. James was taught by George throughout the years about all the intricacies of the business just as he himself was taught by his father Jack Carapella who opened his doors in 1949. This family-oriented experience supplements all the schooling and training gained while continuing to be gained by James Carapella. James Carapella promises to provide the same customer service his father provided and will continue to keep George’s legacy alive. Just because we had to say goodbye to our beloved accountant, mentor, community leader, father, and friend whose smile and jovial behavior was infectious, does not mean that the clients will not continue to be treated like family by James Carapella and staff. We will continue to service all your various needs: tax preparation, accounting advice, financial guidance and review, investment planning, life insurance, etc. George Carapella – Taxman’s legacy continues, and we would like to say thank you to all our loyal customers for your continued patronage.
