CPA Evelyn Saunders in Pleasanton CA: A Partner In Your Financial Life
Evelyn Saunders tells us, "I see myself as a partner to my client, not just during tax season, but a partner for life. So they trust me to help them with everything financial, and I respond to clients right away, rather than taking 24 hours to get back to them. Clients say they really appreciate that and it's a level of service they don't usually get from other people."
Other CPAs charge you for every short phone call you have with them and every time they answer your email, because they're billing you by the minute. But Evelyn Saunders says, "I base my fees on the number of forms I complete for each client, and I don't charge them for phone calls or emails. It's my responsibility to be here for them when they need me and not use their questions as a way to make more money."
During a research phone call for this article, a client of Evelyn B Saunders named Matt said, "We were getting ripped off by an accountant in San Jose before we met Evelyn Saunders. She's done a much better job at a much better price. She's been great for us."
Evelyn Saunders says her fair fees are a sign of how much she genuinely cares about clients. She explains, "Clients aren't just a form to us. They're people whose futures we can improve. We can help them make good decisions and protect them from financial problems, and that starts with giving them good service at a fair price."
Evelyn Saunders CPA in Alameda County: Maximum Returns From Careful Preparation
The national chains doing tax preparation churn out a lot of returns around tax time, but that quantity is at the expense of quality. Rushed preparers miss out on deductions you're entitled to, make big and costly mistakes, and simply don't make the time to ask their customers enough questions to uncover all deductions they're due.
In fact, a couple came to Evelyn Saunders after being told by a chain service that they owed the IRS $25,000. She reviewed their return and found they actually should have received a refund of almost $6,000. She says, "That one error would have cost them everything if they hadn't come to me first."
A CPA who genuinely cares about you will save you thousands of dollars by giving attention to your long-term financial planning, debt reduction, and financial goals, unlike accountants who see you only as a paying client. Evelyn says, "We make the time to help clients understand the confusing details of how much can be contributed to 401k plans, IRAs and college funds, and how these investments impact tax deductions." And you don't have to be wealthy to benefit from this attention. According to Evelyn, "Even $100 a month can make a big difference over time, and all you have to do is start. I walk my clients through that process and show them that investing increases the benefit they get from whatever money they do make."
Evelyn Saunders has lived in the Alameda County Tri-Valley Area for 20 years. She and her husband have two young daughters, and Evelyn is a devoted mother. She says, "Kids grow up so fast and you can't get that time with them back, so I spend time with them whenever I can." Evelyn stays fit with yoga and Pilates, and she and her husband enjoy a daily morning workout together that gets her energized for a work day of helping clients. Evelyn says, "I start everyday by asking what I can do today that will be good for my clients. I believe that honesty, and helping people is a higher calling, and that's what really matters to me."
A business owner named Gene summed it up when he said of Evelyn Saunders CPA, "The few CPAs I worked with took very little interest in my business and would have their interns prepare my documents. Evelyn Saunders...has been a godsend. She shows a genuine concern for both my business and my family. As a result of her time and attention, I have saved literally thousands of dollars this year."
