Testimonials from Our Clients

As a relatively new business owner who always used to do my own taxes, I recently found myself in need of a real live accountant. For my business’s first tax year I used another accounting firm to be sure I was doing my taxes correctly, but once my taxes were filed and my bill was paid, I never heard from them again. I then met Kevin Kummer, President of The A.C.T. Group, and I decided to work with them for my second year of business.
Kevin and his staff were incredibly helpful in educating me about filing estimated taxes quarterly and are very understanding of my very small business and its needs. For example, even though I had turned in my documents late and would need to file an extension anyway, I had a minor freak-out on April 14th. Even though he most certainly had more pressing matters, Kevin took my concerns seriously, taking the time to answer my questions and recalculate my taxes that very same day.
So whether you’re a sole proprietor like me, an individual or a couple with complex tax needs or a small business with multiple employees, I feel confident that The A.C.T. Group will be there for you when you need them and will take the time to answer your questions. ~Molly Coeling l Therapeutic Massage & Reiki, Chicago



“My partner and I have utilized the services of The A.C.T. Group for the past 6+ years both personally and professionally.  We are always confident that Kevin Kummer and his staff are more than competent in handling both our personal and business tax returns.

We know we can rely on them to help with our personal tax returns, our S Corp Tax Return for multiple states, as well as make recommendations as to our withholdings.  We appreciate that not only do they do all of the tax prep and filing, but also make sure that we are on track each year by facilitating tax planning.

The A.C.T. Group also has strong ties to the community and always keeps abreast of the latest changes to tax laws not only as they relate to married couples, but also as they relate to LGBT couples.

We appreciate The A.C.T. Group and recognize the excellent service they provide their customers.  We never hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for comprehensive tax planning and/or tax preparation.”

“I’m lucky enough to have my own business as an artist and writer, but the business side is the part I like least. Working with The A.C.T. Group has let me stay focused on the creative side, without getting stressed out about numbers.” ~ Jeffrey Brown, NY Times Bestselling Author


“Your team has been so helpful to us over the years in a number of different ways.  But with this last project you really came to our rescue.  We had been struggling with how to move forward on the QuickBooks issue and it was holding us up in related areas.  I’m so glad we thought of you!

You were able to quickly resolve the problems and we are moving forward with our goals.  It really means a lot to have such a professional, reliable and friendly group in our corner!

With thanks and great appreciation. ~Johanna & Goldie’s Place



“As another tax year moves near final deadlines, your fine company will have again prepared about a dozen returns for various entities we manage. I felt it appropriate to express our gratitude for the quality of your work, your very personable team of experts, and your support of our needs large and small. We give you our puzzles. You arrange the pieces. It is a great relief to know we can rely on you for these projects. Thank you.”  ~ George Waugh, Administration
