Tom, a graduate of Bellefontaine High School and Ohio University, started this family business and chose to remain in Logan County because of the strong family connections. His office was located at 204 East Columbus Avenue, where the business operated for 45 years. Tom’s wife, Charlotte worked alongside as a bookkeeper while Tom worked as a sole proprietor until 1994 when the business was purchased by his son, John T. Belser, CPA . Tom’s daughter, Anne, also joined the business in 1979, and she currently serves as a bookkeeper and office manager. Charlotte is now retired, but John and Anne are still working together to manage and operate the family business.

When asked about Belser Accounting and Tax Services, Inc.’s Chamber Membership John explained that he chose to be a member of the chamber, so that he could give back to the community where he was born and raised. “The benefits of being a chamber member are too numerous to mention, but most important of all is all of the business contacts and relationships that I have developed with other chamber members,” he shared. The Belser’s have been serving the Logan County community for the past 48 years!
