JoAnn Harteau, EA (1942-2020) - Founder
JoAnn started out just wanting a seasonal, part-time job. She took a class on income tax preparation and was hired at a small tax office in town. In 1982 she decided to venture out on her own and opened her own tax office in her home called Harteau Tax Service.
In 2001, her daughter, Kim, was ready to join the firm so they found an office together in Newark, and Harteau and Perry was born. She loved working side by side with Kim for many years.
In 2018, she decided to retire and enjoyed traveling with her husband and family. JoAnn also loved bowling, camping, and sewing.
Sadly, we lost her in January 2020, but she will always be remembered.
