NEW BRITAIN – In his 48 years in the field, Certified Public Accountant Frank Marrocco never experienced a tax season like 2020.
Marrocco’s New Britain office at 142 W. Main St. has been serving clients virtually as opposed to face-to-face since the covid-19 pandemic hit.
“This is my 31st year I’ve had my business here in New Britain and we’ve had to change the way we do business since covid-19 affected everybody here in Connecticut around the middle of March,” he told the Herald this week.
Many folks dropped off their tax documentation for Marrocco to complete in the springtime.
“On the bright side of things, the covid-19 pandemic extended our tax season from April 15 to July 15,” he said. “Since I’ve been in accounting this has been my easiest April 15 ever. It’s usually a panic stricken day; this year it was a breeze.”
Marrocco and his staff have also helped many of their clients in attaining more than $1 million through the federal government’s Payroll Protection Program.
“Now we’re in the process of helping those clients fill out the required documents to get forgiveness of those loans,” he explained.
The firm provides state and federal tax preparation for personal and business clients, estate/probate accounting and payroll preparation. Staff also handles tax and retirement planning, financial reporting, bookkeeping and family tax planning.
Marrocco enjoys fostering long-term relationships with clients and their families. He stands behind the work he does, knowing his clients value the professionalism and skillfulness that comes with his decades of experience.
His staff includes Cheryl Sylvain, an accountant who has worked with Marrocco since he opened the office in New Britain 31 years ago, along with Marisol Anderson, the office administrator for the last three years.
Marrocco is also a longtime volunteer in the community, as a member of the Greater New Britain Chamber of Commerce, New Britain Lions Club, Interfaith Housing, New Britain Housing Authority, New Britain EMS and New Britain Networking Group.
“It is part of my responsibility working in New Britain and giving back in different ways to show the community who I am and what my business can do for them,” he told the Herald.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and Connecticut Society of Certified Public Accountants have also held his membership for over 40 years.
