About Us

Our objective of providing quality service to clients and our concern for the general public interest has established our reputation in our community and has enabled us to grow through internal expansion. We do not have, nor do we anticipate accepting, publicly held corporations as clients. It is anticipated that much of our future growth will be through expanded service to present clients and the addition of new clients on a regular basis. We intend to hire and train personnel who will be able to grow professionally with us, as needed.

Our firm offers a wide range of services to our individual and business clients. Because our firm is mid-sized, our clients benefit by getting personalized, quality service. Our experience lies in the variety of industries we have served, including medical, restaurants, retail, governmental/non-profits, real estate, and more.

As the list below is by no means all-inclusive, please feel free to inquire about a service you do not see it listed. If it is not a service we provide, we would be more than happy to refer you to a qualified professional.

Firm History

The present firm of Wolf, Tesar and Company, P.C. has evolved from the formation of a partnership between James Wolf and Thomas Tesar in 1980.

After working for Arthur Young and Company in St. Louis from 1972 through 1978, James Wolf purchased an existing bookkeeping and income tax practice from Robert Clow, CPA in 1978. At the time the office was located in a building at 902 S. 13th Street, Pekin, Illinois. This location has since been demolished and is part of what is presently the main visitor parking lot for Pekin Memorial Hospital.

Thomas Tesar joined the firm at that location in November 1979 after working for Arthur Young and Company in St. Louis from 1974 through 1976 and Brandvein, Shapiro, Kossmeyer and Company from 1976 through 1979.

In January 1980, the partnership of Wolf, Tesar and Company was formed.

As requirements for space changed, the offices were relocated to 1000 Court Street, Pekin, Illinois in July 1980, where the practice remained until October 1983. At that time, the location of the firm, 133 North Parkway Drive, Pekin, Illinois, was acquired by the business principals.

On October 3, 1984, the practice was incorporated under the Illinois Corporation Business Act as a professional corporation with the name being changed to its current title, Wolf, Tesar and Company, P.C.

As more space began to be needed, a larger office was purchased and remodeled at 1415 Valle Vista, Pekin, Illinois, in mid-2015. To coincide with the move to the new office, a new logo was designed.
