Our Testimonials

Galen D.Costa Mesa, CA 02 | 1/10/2019

“Ebony and Anthony are fantastic to work with. I transitioned from working with a firm that was not accommodating in any way, and from day one at EA, I have been impressed with how my specific needs have been met in spades. Other firms I vetted seemed to care less about my business, as it was maybe less lucrative than their other accounts. This has not been the case at all in working with this team. I'm incredibly thankful to have met them, and my business is better for it. Peace of mind is paramount in dealing with finance, and this has been my experience throughout”

Naomi R.Los Angeles, CA 0115 | 8/10/2018

“Ebony makes my life ten times easier! I had a terrible experience with a previous firm that left my accounting in shambles and Ebony swooped in to save the day. She sorted everything out for an affordable price and is now my accountant for everything, my business and my personal. She is always willing to help through text or email and is very responsive. She even helped with some minor business advice. She instills confidence that everything is handled so that you don't have to worry. I recommender her to all my friends!”

Elza S.Mid-City West, Los Angeles, CA 21101 | 4/17/2019

“Ebony is absolutely amazing. I cannot imagine filling my taxes with anyone else. I've always had anxiety when it comes to filling taxes and honestly she made me feel empowered and helped me not only file my taxes for previous year but also advised me on proper business set up and how to maximize my deductions going forward. I highly recommend Ebony. She will give you guidance and peace of mind when it comes to filling your taxes.”

Robbie T.Aliso Viejo, CA 010 | 3/1/2017

“I was looking for a new tax preparer and found EA Tax Resolutions on Yelp with 5 stars review. Went to their website, scheduled a consultation and Ebony replied within an hour. Ebony is a friendly genuine person, takes her time to explain everything, and is very thorough. She makes you feel at home (I know I did) and I guarantee your experience won't be boring. I am glad I went to EA Tax Resolutions and definitely coming back next year. Thank you Ebony!”

J C.Costa Mesa, CA 1198 | 5/25/2017

“Ebony and Anthony are young professionals who are very responsive to their clients' needs and concerns. I was in a little bit of a tax/bookkeeping debacle with my business. After having my taxes done by what I would call, a "shmuck" who didn't know much about doing taxes, I procrastinated because of my bad experience. When I got that infamous Franchise Tax Board letter, stating that I had 30 days to file my taxes for 2015, I went on the hunt for someone who not only was professional and responsive to my needs but also who speaks fluent English that I can understand. I came across these guys and instantly felt that they were the ones to take care of this. Their prices were a little higher for bookkeeping than I had been quoted elsewhere, but in my opinion, you get what you pay for. I highly recommend EA Tax Resolutions for any of your tax/bookkeeping needs. I am so pleased that I'm using them to do my 2016 taxes and bookkeeping, and will continue to use them for my business in the future. Thanks guys. Your Rock!”

Frequently Asked Questions

1. When should I hire a bookkeeper?

The decision to hire a professional bookkeeper is usually triggered by a business owner’s experience of working late into the night, only to find that they’re still not keeping up with their bookkeeping duties. By this point, their books are usually out of order and whether they know it or not, they are often costing themselves money by paying more in taxes than they actually need to. Hiring a bookkeeper will help you to maximize the clarity of your company’s books so you have complete awareness of your income and expenses.

2. What’s the difference between an accountant and a bookkeeper?

To the untrained eye, bookkeepers and accountants may seem pretty much the same. They both record and maintain financial records for businesses. The truth, however, goes much deeper and is much more nuanced than a simple explanation would have you believe. In order to fully appreciate and understand what bookkeepers and accountants can do for your business, you first have to understand the duties of each job. Click here for an in-depth description of both professions.

3. What is my business’s legal entity?

This is a common question among many new, and even some seasoned business owners. Choosing from among the number of various different types of legal entities isn’t easy, and the process gets more complicated when you begin to look at the various administrative and tax advantages of each type of entity.

Add to that your potential to choose one entity for general business purposes and be treated as another type of entity for tax purposes, and you have a very confusing choice to make. We’re here to help you, so contact us today for a one-hour consultation.

4. What’s the importance of outsourcing my bookkeeping to a 3rd party?

Outsourcing your bookkeeping to a professional has many benefits. Primary among these benefits is preserving the integrity of your books.

Beyond that, outsourcing your bookkeeping to a professional helps to ensure that you are paying the proper amount in taxes, maximizing your profitability, and most importantly, that you have more time to focus on the day-to-day operations of your business.

5. What are the advantages/disadvantages of the tax preparer processing both my bookkeeping and taxes? Can’t I just have my accountant do my bookkeeping for me?

While there are some tax preparers who will also do your day-to-day bookkeeping for you, it is generally considered a best practice to separate duties between a bookkeeper and a tax preparer, because the job of a bookkeeper is much different than what is required of the tax preparer.

While it may be advantageous to have everything in one place, from the standpoint of only having one person to work with, there are far greater disadvantages to having one person handle both your bookkeeping and tax needs. The tax preparer is generally not an expert in bookkeeping, as they are spending most of their time on tax returns throughout the year, focusing mainly on the rules and regulations regarding tax law. Further, they normally charge more for bookkeeping services, while their efficiency is geared towards tax returns.

On the other hand, the bookkeeper is typically more detailed in nature, and provides timely reports throughout the year that will help the business owner understand how their business is doing, so they can grow their company and increase profitability.

By leveraging the skills of both professionals, you will have two people working on your account who are each experts in their field, providing you the best bookkeeping and tax services possible. Having two experts in your corner creates a system of checks and balances for your accounting records.

6. Will I still be able to keep control over my business if I outsource my bookkeeping to a 3rd party?

Yes, you will – your bookkeeper is there to provide you with assistance, and to keep up with the financial details of your operation, leaving you to spend time working on and growing your business. All decisions about the business remain with you.

7. What software does your bookkeeping work support?

At EATAX, we work primarily with QuickBooks Pro software, including QuickBooks Online, and QuickBooks Desktop. We provide training and ongoing education for clients using QuickBooks.

8. Can you prepare my taxes for me?

In a word: No. Taxes are best prepared by a separate accountant other than your bookkeeper, and one that specializes in tax preparation for your business. This way, you never run afoul of the law, and you don’t overpay your accountant for bookkeeping services. Instead, you take advantage of the unique expertise of each professional.

I process all payroll tax filings and all state tax filings, including State and City B&O (Business & Occupation) taxes. I file 1099s at the end of the year, as well. I prepare the financial statements, so your tax preparer can file the 1040, 1065, and 1120 forms. The tax preparer is also responsible for the K-1’s related to the Partnership and S-Corporation returns.
