About us

We Treat You Like Family‚Äč 

AMBROZY TAX SERVICE INC. has a long history of serving the people of the greater Philadelphia area, South Jersey, and beyond. Originally, the Ambrozys owned a check-cashing business and a gas station in the booming Polish community of Port Richmond. Our family matriarch and founder, Helen Ambrozy, could speak some Polish and became a trusted resource for the Polish community who would come to her for help translating their tax returns.

The founding of Ambrozy Tax Service was a natural progression for Helen, allowing her to formally support those that had placed their trust in her over the years. The bond with the community would grow exponentially over time, but the pillars of the business always stayed the same: honesty, trustworthiness, and affordability.

These values were passed down to her son, Joseph Ambrozy Sr., who would keep the tradition going along with his wife, Helen, until their retirement after more than 50 years in the business. Today, Ambrozy Tax Service includes the third and fourth generations of the Ambrozy family and is run by Joseph Ambrozy Jr. with his two sons, Joe III and Michael.

Times and taxes have changed over the years, but the traditions have been passed down to every generation of Ambrozy. Likewise, our customers have passed down their trust in us to their children and grandchildren. We currently have customers in almost every state, but their roots, like ours, originate in Port Richmond
