Jon Bell, CPA, CTM, CTC, MACCT

Jon Bell, CPA, MACCT, CTM® founded his tax and accounting practice in 2010 based on the same principles of his family’s department store – Bell’s Store that operated in downtown Santa Fe, NM for nearly 60 years. “You’re somebody special at Bell’s” still rings true today with all of Jon’s clients.

Professional Background: Prior to his career in accounting, Jon founded and operated Air Award Exchange, an online broker of frequent flier miles and airline awards which served clients nationwide. He also spent six years as a craps and blackjack dealer, and nine years as a buyer and manager for a large national retailer.

Having been a Tax accountant for over 20 years, Jon fully understands the complexities of small business and taxation issues. Jon has worked with clients in many industries but nowadays primarily focuses on healthcare professions, real estate investors, small retailers, and professional service providers. As a Certified Tax Master, Jon has the knowledge to help make his services more like an investment, rather than an expense.

Education: Jon holds a bachelor’s degree in General Management (BBA) and a master’s degree in Accounting (MACCT) from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Professional Affiliations: He is a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the state of New Mexico. Jon is also member of the National Society of Accountants, the Professional Association of Small Business Accountants, and the New Mexico Society of CPAs. Jon also is a member of the Tax Masters Network and Certified tax Coach where the focus is on leading-edge tax reduction strategies.

Jon is married to Sherry Bell. They are the proud parents of their two precious boys, Alec and Aaron. Jon takes pride in being a 3rd generation New Mexican, having been born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jon’s parents Irving and Marilyn Bell, and immigrant grandparents Morris and Ethyl Bell, owned and operated Bell’s Department Store just off the plaza in downtown Santa Fe until its untimely closing in 1984. In his spare time Jon enjoys watching his son Aaron play baseball, skiing in the high-country of NM, playing tennis and golf, and is a very avid fan of the Cincinnati Bengals.
