Jonathan Bill

Jonathan Bill

Owner

Jonathan is the owner of Premier Tax & Accounting Services. Jonathan grew up in a small business and seeing his dad struggle to start a new business is what gave him his heart to help entrepreneurs. As a result, Jonathan started his company in 2006 with a passion to free and empower small businesses — “free” by taking their back-office responsibilities off their plate and “empower” by providing them with the key metrics and coaching in order to meet their goals. Since 2006, Jonathan and his companies have had the privilege of bringing this transformation to hundreds of organizations.

Outside of work Jonathan enjoys spending time with his family and ministering in his church in the area of music.
