Moni C

I worked with CPA Sara Gonzalez on an intricate tax audit, and she was courteous and thorough in representing me and in working with the IRS agent to come to a reasonable resolution... Sara and her team organized my returns and presented them in a professional understandable manner, which is hugely important to overworked IRS agents. I highly recommend Kohari and Gonzalez and continue to work with them on my annual tax returns. She was courteous
