Rochester has been home to Flower City Tax since it's birth in 1983. Company founder, Valarie A. Hill began Flower City Tax & Accounting as an alternative to the large accounting and tax firms that are more interested in their pocketbooks than the customer, and the typical national franchises where you are just a number. Devoted to customer satisfaction and "home-style" financial services, Flower City Tax knows who YOU are and what YOU need in a tax professional.

As we strive to be among the most reputable and esteemed tax and accounting offices in Rochester NY, Flower City Tax has been committed to delivering unparalleled service to businesses and families in the greater Rochester area.

UPDATE: It is my pleasure to announce that Penny Belknap, long time employee of Flower City Tax, is now the owner of Flower City Tax. As many of you know, I have worked side by side with Valarie since 2003. As I had an awesome mentor in Valarie, I am confident that I can continue to honor her legacy as the founder of Flower City Tax and Accounting, providing you with the same great service and and hometown feel.
