Jared is a CPA in practice with his father at Trexler & Company, P.C. in Pana, IL. He specializes primarily in the areas of income tax preparation and planning for individuals and small businesses. His firm serves a large number of agricultural clients from Pana and the surrounding communities.
Prior to joining the firm in 2009, he worked as a Senior Information Technology Analyst for AT&T in St. Louis, MO. He graduated summa cum laude from Southern Illinois University Carbondale with a B.S. in Information Systems Technologies. He also attended the University of Illinois Springfield to take the accounting courses required for CPA exam eligibility. Jared passed the CPA exam and received his license in 2013.
Jared also provides financial planning services to a small number of the firm's existing tax clients. His long-term goal is to shift the focus of his practice from tax preparation and tax planning for a large number of clients to comprehensive financial planning for a smaller number of clients. He joined ACP because of the tax focus and ultimately believes the ACP model will allow him to better serve his clients and develop his ideal practice. He is also a member of the AICPA PFP (Personal Financial Planning) section and is currently pursuing the PFS credential.
When he's not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Britney, and two children, Kyler and Karlee.
