Chris is here to manage your finance with experience
In 2001, Chris began his career in the tax business as an officer manager at a large West Los Angeles CPA firm. During that time Chris learned the urgency that is required to run a successful tax firm and skills to earn a client’s trust. After three years of office management, Chris got licensed with the State of California and became a certified tax preparer in 2004. Chris acquired vast tax knowledge from the CPA’s and EA’s of the Firm and passed his Enrolled Agents exam in 2006. With a thirst for knowledge and a passion for helping clients Chris took a position as the Lead Audit examiner in the firm in 2007. This required Chris to work directly with the IRS and Franchise Tax Board agents in solving clients tax issues while under examination. As his responsibilities with the firm increased and the pay did not Chris knew it was time to go so in 2013, he left the firm to pursue options closer to home.
In 2013, Chris started his own tax practice and started visiting his clients at their homes, place of business, or even a coffee shop. Chris would also do side work representing clients before the IRS and worked part time with various tax resolution firms. With determination and hard work his practice grew to allow him to consider an expansion. So, in 2018 Chris decided to acquire another local tax practice. This was a major undertaking as it would more than triple the number of clients in his practice. So, on November 19, 2018 Fox Tax Service Inc. was formed and ready for business.
Chris has been in the tax business for 19 years and has personally responded to government correspondence, Personal audits, Business Payroll audit, Sales tax audits, Negotiations with Taxpayer Advocates office, and numerous payment arrangements. In Working with many Examination issues, Chris has extensive experience in what tax laws the government looks to enforce on a regular basis. With this knowledge Chris advises his clients of the tax laws that exist and takes a commonsense approach in explaining how they apply to his clients. It is this drive to help clients out of the most difficult circumstances that inspires Chris to do taxes for a living.
Chris takes great pride in treating every client like family and taking each tax situation personally. In his spare time, Chris enjoys time with his family especially his grandson Kristopher who is on Fox Tax Service Inc. business cards. We look forward to the blessing of Grandchild #2 that will be coming to us soon in 2021.
