About Us

Please let me introduce myself. I am Jeff Price, founder and owner of The Price CPA Group. I founded our firm in 1986 in Walnut Creek, CA. Prior to that time I had worked in one small CPA Firm, one international CPA firm and two mid-level CPA firms. I knew I always wanted to be on my own, but also knew I needed years of hands-on experience before I could serve my clients properly.

I received my undergraduate degree in Economics (with a second undeclared major in Accounting) from the University of Illinois in 1978. I received my Masters in Taxation from DePaul University of Chicago, IL in 1980.

Shortly after graduating from DePaul University I started my career in San Francisco, CA at an international CPA firm. Along the way I met my future wife and we decided to relocate to the Philadelphia, PA area where I worked for a mid-level firm. After a time we decided to move back to San Francisco and I worked for another mid-level firm.

After one year with that firm, I started The Price CPA Group and having being working there ever since. In the year 2000, with twin sons in tow, my wife and I decided to move to the Chicagoland area, my home town. Our firm has been able to remain strong and retain clients from many states nationwide.

Our newest team member (having worked with us for approximately 7 years) is Vickie Friedrich. She brings many years of experience in accounting for small businesses. She is also a QuickBooks expert and can diagnose the most complex QuickBooks problems quickly and efficiently. She is indispensable in helping clients correct and eliminate prior errors made in QuickBooks.

We hope that we can serve you in the near future.
