The firm later became Bush, Hutchinson & Jacobs CPA. When Michael Bush and Deborah Hutchinson moved to Arizona, they left the practice to Susan Jacobs who named the firm Susan Jacobs & Company. Susan ran the firm until January 2003 when she sold the firm to Robert Sylvester who renamed the firm Sylvester & Company.

The combined firm is moving forward under the guidance and leadership of the owners of 7th Rule Accounting P.C. The firm has customers located in Washtenaw County and the surrounding counties of Hillsdale, Livingston, Lenawee, Jackson, Oakland, and Wayne with others located around the United States, in Canada, or in other parts of the world.
