“As a CPA, my role is to be a tax advisor, not simply a tax preparer. I am available to my clients to consult throughout the year, when the activities that lead to taxation occur. Together we can manage your tax situation rather than deal with its consequences at tax time."
~ Joel S. Smith, CPA
"I recently found myself needing a new CPA after 15 years of satisfaction with my former one. I had a few to choose from, and ultimately decided on Joel, after much deliberation. He was very caring, extremely knowledgeable and patient with me, as I made this difficult transition. He gave me so much more personal attention than I expected. That, as well as his very strong command of the tax laws and codes, made it very easy for me to decide to work with him."
Business Owner and Real Estate Investor
"As President, trying to personally implement growth and changes within the company, I knew I had to team up with a dedicated and readily available CPA. One that would understand and is comfortable with the in’s and out’s of the new and constant changing tides within growing businesses, as well as adapt, work and grow with us. Joel serves the role of our outsourced tax and accounting department and has been highly responsive and knowledgeable in navigating us through the waters of financial and tax implications."
President of Zimmer Biomet Fegan, Inc.
"I am a CFO of a small technology firm in San Francisco and have known Joel Smith for well over a decade in both a professional and personal capacity. He has done my small company taxes on numerous occasions and we are very happy with his service. His honesty, deep technical knowledge and savvy small business insights have helped us tremendously."
Owner, Net Gain Business Consultants
"Joel is attentive, responsive, extremely sharp, and an expert in the tax field. Joel and I worked in close contact during an extensive corporate financial review. He was as detailed as an IRS auditor – maybe more so! I would highly recommend Joel to anyone requiring tax support – on a professional or personal level – and will continue to urge my own clients to work with him. Thank you for the quality work, Joel!"
