It all started with helping people.
Roots at ERB FINANCIAL go back to 1953, when founder Bill Erb began preparing income taxes for neighbors, co-workers, and family members. ‘Erb’s Income Tax’ grew out of that initial experience, at one time operating six locations throughout the Rochester, NY area. Most of our early operations were out of storefronts not built for office use. One of our offices was above a movie theater, another shared space with a butcher, and another was started in the storage space of an out-of-business beauty supply store.
A lot has happened since the 50’s. Insurance and investment products were introduced in the ‘60’s and 70’s as people sought financial advice and counsel. Erb’s Income Tax became Erb Financial in 2000 to better reflect our wider focus. Several office locations were eventually consolidated in 2009 to our current single location in Gates. During tax-filing season staffing swells to about 20 individuals, and it is no surprise that three of Bill Erb’s nine children are currently working at Erb Financial in the roles of tax preparer or investment advisor.
Today we assist individuals and small businesses on a range of tax and investment issues. Our understanding of the concepts and application of tax law are extremely beneficial – even crucial – in many investment-related decisions.
Our customers are primarily from upstate New York, but we serve individuals living across the country, as well as in Latin America and Europe.
