What Our Clients Say...

★★★★★ (Yojana T.)

"I'm so thankful to have found The CPA Corner team, this is my 3rd year with them and I never have to worry about a thing when it comes to tax season! They remind me when I need to upload documents to start my tax return, I submit everything online on their secure, easy-to-use site, and they call me within a business day if I'm missing anything or to answer questions. It's good to know that Nick and Kimberly always have their client's best interests in mind -- thank you Kimberly for giving me a call before tax season started to get me prepared and answering all my questions in regards my 401-K and IRA!

★★★★★ (Beautiful Smiles, Inc.)

"The CPA Corner Firm is a a great and helpful firm that I am using right now. Ms. Kimberly and her team is very knowledgeable about taxes. I had asked her to help me out with my business tax and personal taxes in a short period of time. She was willing to help and resolve everything to me. I am truly happy with their services and communication. Thank you."

★★★★★ (Haylee D.)

"Kimberly is AMAZING! I had so many issues with my tax returns last year and had a few special conditions for my tax returns this year. She bent over backwards to help me and I greatly appreciate it! I will definitely be recommending their services to my friends and family, thank you so much CPA Corner!!!"

★★★★★ (Anne C.)

"We got a big problem from IRS audit when we moved to Irvine this July. I need a very good accountant to resolve the issue. I checked on line and found Nick. He has good customer reviews and is a expert in IRS audit case. Our case is complicated because it involved previous accountant mistakes, our different responses to IRS in different tax years. I met with Nick and discussed our case. He spent a lot of time to study and accepted our case. I went to his office many times to discuss it. He also represented us to call IRS to communicate and figure out a better way to appeal our case. When the IRS rejected our first appeal, he didn't give up. He discussed with us and called the IRS again. He decided to do the amended appeal. Finally, we won the case after 5 months fighting back! If it were not helped by Nick, we would pay a huge tax and penalty and accumulate bigger problem later. He saved us money from back taxes and his fee was reasonable. Most importantly, he saved us from IRS stressful audit in a big favor!".

★★★★★ (D & T.)

Nick and his staff have been fabulous. They know the laws and fought hard for our 2 IRS Audits. They won both our audits saving us over 100K in what the IRS was erroneously trying to say we owed. They will be doing all of our tax returns every year from now on to be sure we have everything in proper order. Much cheaper than a Tax Attorney! Highly recommend to anyone who is having issues with the IRS or just general tax returns."

★★★★★ (Jay A.)

"Nick and his team deserve more than just a 5 star. He is very efficient and thorough. He was able to answer all my questions and I feel confident in his knowledge with my IRS issues. He goes straight to the point and is honest. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a good CPA. Will continue doing business with him."

★★★★★ (Peete W.)

"Thank you Nick, Tina and the whole team to get large tax withholding refunds for our family from selling our properties in the US. It is worth the time to wait we finally get all our money back plus interest from the IRS and California. Thank you very much. You are the best CPA in town!"

★★★★★ (Norman S.)

"I had the most complex challenging tax situation that needed correction from 2014. Nick and his staffs handled well the challenges of the taxes and also helped me feel relaxed. He is not only an excellent tax advisor but also an amazingly patient man. He is the best tax professional I have ever worked with!"

★★★★★ (Antonio V.)

"Very responsive team, helpful and able to resolve our issue! We were so overwhelmed with our chaotic taxes this year but Nick & The CPA Corner team saved us big time. Thanks a lot!"
