Business and Personal Tax Preparation
For nearly 20 years I have called Georgia my home after transferring from Southern California to work with The Coca-Cola Company. After a decade of working for this wonderful company, I was tempted by my entrepreneurial spirit to help run our family contracting business. Both of these experiences were the perfect foundation for the services I have been providing my clients at Cherokee CPA Services PC since 2006.
