    I have had the pleasure of working with Monique on my taxes for well over a decade. She has been a proactive in providing me thoughtful direction on my finances as well as great follow-up and effort from the larger Beach Cities Tax & Books team. I don't have a lot of time to waste with back and forth during the tax season and I appreciate that Monique makes the process easy, quick and focused for me.

    After an extensive search for a tax preparer in my area and reading many reviews and reports, I finally selected Monique Wright, CPA, of Beach Cities Tax and Books in Redondo Beach, CA to prepare my taxes. While her CPA designation reflects her training, years of experience and knowledge of the most current tax laws, I have also found that Monique is a true professional who responds quickly to her client's needs. She also maintains an interested and pleasant demeanor making an office visit a comfortable experience. After a number of years as a satisfied tax client, I am happy and confident to recommend any potential client(s) to Monique Wright and Beach Cities Tax and Books.

    Beach Cities Tax and Books has done a great job preparing both corporate and personal tax returns for our family. It is a pleasure working with Monique and her team; to the point we almost look forward to tax time every year. 🙂

    Going to a CPA was always like going to a dentist for me, but Monique took all the tension out of my tax and accounting topics. She is very knowledgeable, finds the right procedure and structure and, surprisingly for a CPA, is always on time. The entire Beach Cities Tax team is amazing: friendly, supportive, competent and helpful with everything.

    As seen on yelp:
    I have having Monique and Stephanie do my taxes and books for many years now. They are very prompt at handling returning calls and hand holding customers. I love that it's a woman run business. If your annoyed and frustrated by your current tax accountant- I highly recommend giving then a shop. I don't see myself changing accountants ever. Located just to knob hill on pch. They have parking in rear. I am and have been very happy with there customer service, rates and around they are just awesome!
