Our History


The accounting and tax practice established by James F Twigg at 1006 S Locust Avenue, in Freeport, in 1978, has continued under the leadership of long-time owner, Tracy L Getz. Tracy has served as President and CEO of the of the Corporation and has managed the day-to-day operations of the business since Jim’s passing in 2009.

As the President of TB&B, Getz has been preparing tax returns for individuals and Corporations, as well as assisting his staff with the accounting portion of the business. He also assists individuals with investing and planning for their retirement under TLG Financial, Inc. Getz remarked, “It was Jim’s desire to establish a succession plan to ensure continuation of the business to serve our long-time clients and friends. I appreciate the fact that Jim gave me the opportunity to see that TB&B was a successful, on-going entity for many years to come. It is our goal to build the practice on the strong foundation that Jim established.”

Tracy employed two of his sons, Justin and Trevor Getz, to aid in the day to day operations of the business. “They have done an excellent job maintaining the accounting and payroll services of our practice. I consider them more like partners than employees.”
