Firm History

It was September 1965, America was in the middle of Vietnam, “The Beatles” rode the top of the charts with their hit album “Rubber Soul” and… There was much excitement over Ed White becoming the 1st American to walk in space during the Gemini Missions in June. John Bullis decided to open his own Practice as a Certified Public Accountant. He opened his doors in a small office on West Telegraph Street near what is now “Mo & Sluggo’s” bar. Thus founding Bullis And Company.

In the early 1970’s Bullis & Company moved into the famous Yerington Home on Division Street.

We soon out-grew the Yerington Home and began construction of our current location here at 206 S. Division St.

In December of 1979 we were finishing construction. Although the rest of the staff didn’t complete the move until January of 1980, John made sure to set up a small desk in the unfinished building and did some work so that he could start depreciating it! (Accountants…)

Over the years we have consulted hundreds of businesses, prepared thousands of tax returns and even trained much of our own competition (many accountants in the area once worked for John Bullis). We have also conducted many Forensic Investigations, leading to discovery of all sorts of fraud & embezzlement.
