Irene is absolutely amazing! I am an independent contractor, and after last year's fiasco with H and R Block in which a sweet but unqualified young woman plugged in my 1099's and then charged me a ton, I knew I needed a real accountant who understood how to help me get the most out of my deductions. Irene made the process so painless. I brought in everything, and she said she would go over it thoroughly and then have me come in to sign off on the filing in a few days, so she could really take her time on the numbers. She was professional, personable, and made me feel confident about my filing this year. I'm absolutely going back to her next year. Thank you so much, Irene!Mar 16, 2017VerifiedOC Financial Services Inc.'s reply

Irene was very friendly and professional. She went above and beyond. She also made sure to take the time to explain my taxes to me as where my previous accountant didn't. Highly recommended! Thanks Irene!Apr 16, 2015Verified
