Hello, I'm Geoff Plourde, an enrolled agent who works as a business and tax consultant based out of Southern California.

I focus primarily on preparation, recordkeeping, and correspondence with state and federal tax agencies. My secondary area of practice is accounting system deployment for small businesses and nonprofits as well as strategic planning to maximize future success.

Key business practices: I don't accept engagements where I do not believe that I will be able to complete the requested task due to my own lack of knowledge about the subject, low probability of achieving a desired outcome, or ethical pitfalls. Similarly, my focus is not on "creative tax strategies" but on conservative tax positions that have a solid basis in law and regulations. This does not mean that I don't focus on saving my clients money on taxes, just that I have little interest in them having to pay more later in penalties because of a questionable position they take now. I do not recommend positions that don't have a reasonable basis, because should those positions later be questioned my clients might end up with substantial penalties related to additional tax or under reporting resulting from an IRS adjustment.

If you'd like to leave me a message, just select the discussion tab at the top of this page.

Thank you!

Geoff Plourde, EA
