Our History

Donald J. Ciampi Sr. began preparing taxes as a second job to help support his family in 1967 as a tax preparer at the H&R Block in Waterbury, Connecticut.

Don Sr. became a popular tax preparer at H&R Block and quickly rose to a manager position in the Waterbury office, located in the Colonial Plaza on Thomaston Avenue.

In 1968, he left H&R Block and started Ciampi Tax and Financial Services LLC. His professional background, expertise, education, and attention to detail – not to mention his Italian heritage – drew the attention of family, friends and many referrals from those looking for assistance in the planning and preparation of federal and state tax returns.

Over the last 50 years, the firm has expanded its depth and breadth of service offerings from traditional tax preparation to include accounting, business consulting, and wealth management services –  from the basic to the complex. We have successfully grown from a handful of local clients to now servicing hundreds of clients in over 30 states and internationally.
