A word from our clients

It has been a great experience partnering with Jeanine. She has been extremely helpful in saving my small business money.

I’ve worked with Jeanine for several years in industry and now she provides accounting and tax services to my small business, Tamarinda.

Jeanine is a seasoned professional who possesses strong technical knowledge and is well-versed in the broad application of tax law and accounting principles. She has provided me with sound advises on many issues, such as what expenses I should run through my business, when I should start running a payroll, and tax minimization strategies. She thoroughly understands small (and large) businesses and has excellent “real world” experience. She keeps well-informed through continuous study and as a result, has a comprehensive knowledge of the tax and accounting rules. Thoroughness and critical problem solving skills, as well as good sense of humor, make Jeanine pleasure to work with. And finally, Jeanine is a catalyst for success by helping me keep my business up and running. I have, and will continue to, recommend Jeanine to others who are looking for a great CPA.

I rest peacefully knowing Jeanine has completed my tax return fairly and accurately.

I especially like that Jeanine operates with uncompromising ethics and integrity and at the same time ensures that every deduction, benefit, rebate and credit that I am entitled to is accounted for in details. Jeanine has efficiently handled my complex tax situations that go beyond the limitations of online tax preparation tools. She has also been a great resource for future planning when I needed to make financial choices with potential tax implications. Jeanine’s extensive experience and knowledge, ethical practices and personal interaction give me complete confidence that I have the best possible tax outcome.
