Chris established Crown City Tax Planning in 2014 after recognizing that a need existed for comprehensive tax planning, return preparation, and representation for tax audits and collections matters.
With his experience in the financial services industry and the tax code being more complex than ever, Chris realized that his clients could not rely on off-the-shelf tax software to adequately prepare their taxes.
Chris graduated from the University of California – Los Angeles with a degree in Psychology and earned his MBA in Financial Planning from California Lutheran University. Chris is also an Enrolled Agent as licensed by the Treasury Department and has unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before all divisions of the IRS.
In 2016, he became a Fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute and is also a proud and active member of the California Society of Enrolled Agents where he currently serves as the President of the San Gabriel Valley Chapter of CSEA.
Chris enjoys going to LA Kings and Ontario Reign hockey games, traveling with his wife, Mary, and exploring the world with his son, Carter.
