People often ask me tax questions before, during and even after a real estate transaction. It is also important to have a team of experts around you to get the best answer you can for your clients. Last month, I focused on a local hardware store, Bay Hardware, which has a 60 year history in Seal Beach.
This month’s highlight, Darren Smith, CPA, has deep roots in Seal Beach… 4 generations deep. He, his wife and two boys enjoy calling Seal Beach home and his tax firm has saved my family thousands of dollars on my taxes for the last three years. During the last few years of a pretty tough economy, he has even managed to grow to two office locations – one here in Seal Beach and anther in Tustin, CA.
Darren has a Masters in Taxation and really understands the IRS tax code. I’ve worked with Darren not only on the professional side, but I like dealing with people who are part of the community. Darren was a member of the BNI group I founded in 2009 and has been a board member of the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce and PONY Baseball.
If you do have a question, I know he would be happy to help you. With all the changes in the tax code, he is really up to date with the latest information. Feel free to write him an email at email@example.com or visit his website at www.darrensmithcpa.com
