Working with successful people to achieve their financial goals is why Paul Gonzalez, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) chose his career path.

Paul works with a variety of clients, focusing on tax consulting, trust administration and bookkeeping services. He has experience in corporate, partnership, trust, and individual income tax planning and compliance, federal, multi-state, and local tax research, communication with the IRS and state taxing authorities, and choice of entity considerations. Paul serves clients in various industries, including real estate, construction, medical, agriculture, engineering, software, hospitality, and professional services.
“I enjoy working with successful individuals who have goals for their financial growth,” Paul says. “I evaluate a business owner’s personal and business income situations to minimize their income tax liabilities. Helping small businesses prosper is fulfilling. I always look forward to creating long-term partnerships.”
Business ownership brought Paul back full circle. In his prior career he managed hotels and restaurants and also owned three restaurants in the Central Valley. His passion for the business side of ownership and specifically accounting was the driving force behind his chosen career path.
