I am closing the business and retiring as of January 2024
Thanks for stopping by and good luck with your search for a bookkeeper.

This is up on the internet because you people love looking stuff up on it.  
My contact information is up above. I am local to the South Sacramento and  
Elk Grove area, that being in Northern California of course.  
If you need the services of a bookkeeper, give me a call or email me,  
We'll talk and see if I can be of any assistance to you.  
My services can include any or all of the following:  
Do you need some one to pay your bills for you? Process simple payroll for you?  
Balance your bank account? Prepare an income statement that you can give to your bank  
or to your income tax preparer? Basically, any or all aspects of bookkeeping.  
And I can do this as a one time shot, on a monthly basis, or on a quarterly basis,  
or if you have a box of stuff that covers a whole year, you can give that box to me  
and I will process it and give you back what ever it is that you need.  
My rates are reasonable, but will vary depending on the type of work to be done.  
if monthly or quarterly work is involved, I prefer a flat rate, as I actually dislike charging  
on an hourly basis. So you can call me up as often as you like with any question that you  
might have. I provide a service, so my goal is to give you the best service possible.  
I've been doing bookkeeping, in one form or another,  
since graduating from college back in 1981, so it's been almost 40 years now.  
I have mostly done what is called client bookkeeping for local accounting offices.  
This is where I will produce a monthly Profit & Loss statement, ( also known  
as an Income Statement ) based on the income and expenses for the month.  
Nothing fancy and pretty basic, but the Profit & Loss statement is what your  
tax preparer will want at the end of the year. So it is a good thing to do on a  
monthly basis, and your tax preparer will thank you for being so well prepared.  
Over the years, I have also prepared and filed sales tax returns, payroll and all the  
related payroll tax returns, property tax returns, city business license tax returns,  
and various other forms that various government agencies like to have filled in.  
Other basic information about myself that you might want to know before you  
contact me... I am not a CPA; I am not an income tax preparer; I am not licensed  
by any government agency for the accounting profession. I am a bookkeeper.  
I graduated from UC Berkeley with a Bachelors degree in Theoretical Mathematics.  
I needed a job and bookkeeping came easy to me, and that's what I've been doing  
all these years. So if I don't know something, I like to think that I can figure it out.  
Anyway, thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.
