In 1936, Harry A. Berkheimer began
administrating taxes. He soon founded a modest tax collection service in
Bangor, Pennsylvania and by 1946 had extended his independent tax assistance to
the surrounding communities. From his small one-man office, Mr. Berkheimer
quickly gained widespread attention and respect for his expertise in financial
matters. The Berkheimer dream continues to unfold, moving forward in-step with
the non-tax needs of our clients. Berkheimer Outsourcing, Inc. continues the
tradition of excellence by providing innovative and cost-effective
“back-office” business services to our clients. Our combination of technology
and experience puts us in the unique position to deliver outstanding
outsourcing solutions and services. We provide our services to clients
throughout North America with the assurance of the highest level of accuracy,
quality, security, and confidentiality that is synonymous with the Berkheimer
name. Currently, Berkheimer is Pennsylvania’s largest independent tax service.
As the need for Berkheimer’s services grew, our state of the art equipment and
experienced staff of professionals enabled Berkheimer to expand throughout the
state of Pennsylvania. In fact, over the decades, Berkheimer has achieved
approximately 90% of the independent, local tax collection market. Currently Berkheimer
maintains twenty-five offices throughout the state of Pennsylvania and over
1200 municipalities and school districts look to Berkheimer for timely and
accurate processing of their tax records and payments.
