KPR: They've Got Your Back!I'm happy to share what a helpful and positive accountant (and person!) I have found in Ken Rapoport, CPA. He not only provided QuickBooks files for when they prepared my tax returns for my business, but when I changed to being an SCorp, he took the time to explain to me the differences between being an LLC and an SCorp: In terms I could easily understand. And he let me ask as many questions as I wanted, which was a joy for me, as I like to learn and understand. You won't get service like Ken's In this day and age from a book, a video, or anything else. Ken is a Real Human Being, and I like his down-to-earth way of explaining even the most complex subjects about businesses or taxes.I sleep easy at night knowing that KPR prepared an immaculate tax return for my SCorp, along with sending me other additional tax forms that I needed to mail--because they are that good. They provide me with a "Taxpayer's Copy" of everything they give me to file. Big THANKS, KPR, for all you do for me and my business! Gina Kotz, President, WordPrep, Inc. More...

Ken is the best in the Tax business! He goes above and beyond whatever I could have imagined I could get out of my experience with an accounting firm. Ken is the perfect example of grace under pressure. Even when dealing with many clients at tax crunch time, he always makes me feel like my needs are first on his list. If you are self employed or run your own business, do yourself a favor and call Ken to get your taxes in order or be your advocate to help in dealing with the IRS. I highly recommend Kenneth P Rapoport, CPA for all your Tax needs. They are also able to payroll and general accounting needs for your business. With over 40 years of experience, you know you are getting the best and if there is money to be saved he has the expertise to help you get the best tax return. More...

Mr. Rapoport has helped me and my family with their tax returns, regardless of whether they were simple or complicated. He is worth every penny. He has helped us maximize our tax write-offs as well as coming to our aid, especially when it comes to dealing with the IRS. He even told me where I went wrong when I attempted to set myself up as a corporation, along with willing to "clean up the mess" I inadvertently made. From now on, I will consult with him whenever I have the funds to set up a new business. He knows what he is doing.Overall, he is an excellent accountant, and he will act as Power of Attorney on your behalf. More...

We began working with Ken and his team in 1993 when we set up our USA company (as a subsidiary of our UK operations). Ken was endlessly helpful and guided us through the financial and tax rules that affected us in Illinois. Although most of what we did was simple enough, it was great to know that we could call Ken's office whenever we needed extra help or just a "sanity check". More...

Q&A

We provide tax and accounting services to small and medium size businesses and individuals. With close to 40 years of experience, there is little we have not encountered. We have a level of expertise in accounting and taxation which transcends our peers.

It is important that you hire someone who knows what they are doing; looks at the big picture not only regarding the current work in front of them, but how it affects past and future transactions. We provide that knowledge. We are not simply "pencil pushers", but CPA's who will go that extra mile and do whatever it takes to provide the best services for their clients, the way we would want a professional to do for ourselves.

I love the people! Helping individuals and small business is a great joy to me. I love taking a mess of a situation and straightening it out, or dealing with a problem and making it disappear. I also love to work with clients who require more sophisticated work. Most of all, I want someone to feel comfortable with the work we do, that they can trust us to do the best job for them at all times.

My natural inclination for numbers. I have a talent for working with numbers- and I understand the entire business process, the difficulties small businesses and individuals encounter, and how to problem solve. When I meet with clients, I take a step back to look at the big picture- set up priorities and solve problems one at a time. When I learned I was skilled at doing this for myself, I wanted to help others.

I have a natural talent for numbers and this comes second nature for me. I care deeply for my clients- I know some say that, but I really take all my clients' situations personally. I have a strong willingness to help them problem solve and see them more successful. This is not a job to me, I have spent my whole career in this field, and I consider this to be what I do best. I will not disappoint you.
