Q: Will you replace my current CPA?

Public Taxes

A: Yes, or no. I can assume the bookkeeping responsibilities that your accountant currently provides for you at a much more reasonable price.

I can also take over your tax preparation services at a more reasonable price if you would like as well. I have experience with high-end income tax returns working within a CPA firm in Rohnert Park, however, you may have tax needs that I am inexperienced with.

If so, you may wish to keep you current CPA or I would be happy to recommend someone to you.

Also as an Enrolled Agent vs a CPA.. I received my tax preparation designation from the Federal Government and so am able to help prepare taxes in ALL states rather than just one state.
