Queens Native Expands Tax Preparation Operation into Long Island City, Drawn by Startup Culture

July 3, 2017 Sponsored Story

A new accounting office opened in Long Island City earlier this year by a Queens native who is looking to tap into the neighborhood’s start-up culture and expand his operation throughout the borough.

Guillermo ‘Will’ DeJesus, a Certified Public Accountant who owns an online tax preparation company named, opened a new office at 10-11 46th Avenue in January, his third office in Queens. This location will serve as his company’s main headquarters.

Will said he opened in Long Island City to help new businesses that are coming into the area.

“LIC is where you have a lot of startups and first-time business owners moving in,” he said. “We want to make sure that we can help them early on, so they can make the right tax decisions and save themselves a lot time and money,” he said.

Will, who first established his full-service tax and accounting practice in Corona in 2014, offers business owners and individuals the ability to tap into his proprietary online program,, to get remote tax preparation assistance from over 50 tax professionals nationwide. Him and his team of CPAs also offer face-to-face tax consulting and planning strategies out of their three Queens offices, the other two being located in Corona and Jackson Heights.

The firm has 10-15 experts in the three offices during the January to April tax season and five during the offseason. However, clients from any neighborhood can use his online web application to connect with his team anytime throughout the year remotely.

The web application provides virtual consulting and remote tax preparation by way of certified tax professionals so filers can get expert assistance as opposed to software that requires individuals to file their own taxes.

“Via my web app, clients can engage in their tax preparation without leaving their home or office, and without having to do it themselves which can increase the risk of making costly mistakes,” he explained.

Will, who was born and raised in Corona, started his firm after working for a number of Fortune 500 companies.

“Following my graduation from Queens College in 1998, I became a management auditor for Sony Entertainment, The Rockefeller Group and Altria Group Corporation,” he said.

Before starting, Will was also a senior management consultant for Deloitte and Touche, the global accounting firm.

“After working closely with large organizations, I decided to go back to my humble roots and help the people who need it most,” he said.

In his spare time, Will teaches a cyber security course at Baruch College and enjoys helping startups achieve their goals.

As such, he is offering Long Island City residents and businesses free consultations throughout the summer.
