The History of LoTurco & Company
In 1982, after being employed for over five years at an accounting firm and preparing tax returns by home appointments, Ed LoTurco decided to establish his own business. In October of 1982, LoTurco & Company opened its first office on Hempstead Turnpike in Franklin Square.
Our first tax season began with clients who responded to print advertising. These satisfied clients then began referring other clients to LoTurco & Company.
Standing by the slogan "Nice People Working Hard for You," LoTurco & Company steadily grew over the years. By 1996, the firm moved into its second-floor suite at one of Franklin Square's largest office buildings at 1040 Hempstead Turnpike.
Today, the firm handles clients from coast to coast with an expanded offering of services that now includes bookkeeping, payroll tax, sales tax, business tax returns, and a slate of financial services, from insurance and retirement planning to tax reduction and investing.
LoTurco & Company's strategy and intention is to offer superior and complete financial services at reasonable fees. The company's fees for professional year-round service are generally less than other seasonal storefront operations. But Ed will be first to say that price point has less to do with client loyalty than other factors, such as performance.
"Our success stems from the professional services we provide to our clients," Ed says. "Our experience is a testament to this: true hard work will bring about client satisfaction. And when people are happy with their results, they confidently refer their family and friends."
LoTurco & Company takes a personal approach in a discreet, comfortable and dignified atmosphere. Past, present and future — your entire financial picture is taken into consideration as we help you navigate to a sound financial future.
Our firm has over 30 years of experience to meet your needs. The professional staff at LoTurco & Company are all experienced in accounting, taxation, and finance that may help bring about tax savings to you. We maintain an expansive, up-to-date tax library on premises.
In 2012, Ed's son, Benjamin LoTurco, joined the firm as a tax professional and financial advisor, representing the second generation of LoTurco & Company.
