About Chrest CPA

Tax-Purposed Financial and Tax Services is our term for a level of Financial service appropriate for all individuals, corporations, sole-proprietors and single and multi person LLC's. It can include entering and reviewing your income and expense transactions, bank statement reconciliation, and preparation of a month or quarterly and year-to-date management-only use profit and loss statement along with a review of your financial picture.  From Investment allocations to Insurance reviews. we can perform a complete Financial analysis. 

If you have ever gotten a "surprise" in March when you get your tax return done, leaving you with just a few weeks to come up with a large tax balance due, you know what a benefit it can be to stay on top of your books and taxes throughout the year. 

Tax-Purposed Financial Planning allows us to review your scheduled estimated tax payments for necessary adjustments. We also use this information to advise you on an expected tax benefit of purchasing equipment, and whether timing of the purchase is critical to its maximum tax advantage. 

This is done at a cost which is typically much less than the services of other Certifed Public Accountants, which would include more detailed reports, balance sheets, and other accounting services. 

Using our tax-purposed Accounting service may also save on tax preparation fees. If we need to complete a year's worth of bookkeeping in order to get your information ready for accurate tax return fling, bookkeeping charges can be higher during the individual tax fling season.
