Who's your Accountant?

Asked by Brittney Edwards, Oakland, CA Thu Jul 19, 2012

I'm looking for a local Accountant who specializes in or at least does a lot of tax returns for Real Estate Professionals and General Partnerships. I want to be able to send them my monthly expense/ income reports with receipts and check stubs for processing. I need advice on how to pay myself because I want to leave my commissions in the business account take a salary. I basically need a tax strategy, preparation of financial reports, and tax filing. Do you have an accountant currently doing this? If so who? Thanks!

I use Maggie Chow -- she used to work for the IRS, and also has held seminars/Q&As on 1031s. I know of several realtors who use/refer her.

Maggie Chow
t. 510-864-7670
f. 510-864-7676
Extension 203

What I like about Maggie and her team, they send me reminders when I'm due since I always get extensions :)

I have just started a new business and I need to hire an accountant. I've been looking around trying to find one that will work with me as soon as possible. I have a friend that tried to do his own accounting for his business and it didn't end well. I want to be on top of things and organized. Hopefully me and my future accountant will be able to iron out all the details by next week.
