Who Is David Kirst

I am an active licensed California Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with an undergraduate degree in accounting and graduate degree in taxation. I am certified as an Intuit Quickbooks ProAdvisor.

My expertise is in closely held businesses and individual taxes. Most of my clients run an S corporation, partnership, or single member LLC in the areas of real estate, professional services and/or distribution and manufacturing.

As a sole practitioner, I will perform the client interview, the data input, the review, and the tax filing. This is advantageous over a larger firm because I am intimately familiar with all of the details of your tax returns. Utilizing my services as a sole practitioner allows for a seamless and streamlined beginning to end process, as well as offering time management benefits – your focus can remain on overseeing your business, while I focus on the annual financial and tax compliance obligations. I leverage email and phone conversations to obtain requested information while maintaining the quality of the tax returns.
