About Us

American Accounting Associates was established in 1975 as a full-service Orland Park CPA firm to serve the tax, accounting, payroll and consulting needs of individuals and small businesses. In addition to providing accurate advice and excellent service, we pride ourselves on establishing a personal relationship with each one of our clients in Orland Park and the surrounding areas.

For over 40 years, our tax planning, tax savings, and consulting services have been offering our clients more than just a number crunching service. We "partner” with our clients in their business throughout the year, advising them on business and tax matters each step of the way to make their business more profitable.

Business Consulting

We show you how to grow your business and increase profits and also act as a "sounding board” for all your business ideas.

Tax Preparation

As tax experts, we help you put more money in your pocket after taxes with our tax planning and preparation services.

Payroll Services

We offer complete payroll services. Unlike the major payroll companies, we provide personalized customer service and assign you a specific payroll specialist to handle all your payroll needs.

Accounting and Bookkeeping

Each month we provide a timely and accurate snapshot of your tax and business position to keep you on track and also apprise us of how you are doing.
