Rachelle is awesome! Don't try to do your own taxes or trust Turbo Tax to accurately assess your situation when you can hire Rachelle and Solide Accounting. We were referred by a mortgage broker when we had to file a tax return in 2 states after moving...  Rachelle's expertise allowed us to accurately file a partial year tax return as it should have been to pay income tax in another state. I would have never known to do this myself, and Turbo tax did not give us this option. From that year on forward we will always trust Rachelle to help with our taxes. She is knowledgable, professional, very prompt, and super easy to work with and communicate with. Highly recommend!

I am a new business owner and Rachelle has been a great help in starting the business with all tax related issues and questions.  She has stayed up on my business and reminds me when different tax events are approaching.  She is definitely one of the greatest resources I have found for a small business.

I have even asked her questions about opening a business and she has been able to point me to someone with that expertise.

Rachelle is a rockstar. I got a notice from the IRS that I indicated I owed ~$2,000 in taxes from income I wasn't aware I was supposed to report from the previous year. Rachelle, dove in and found mistakes on my old return that I completed with Turbo Tax and found enough mistakes to save ~$2,200 in taxes. Because of this, I went from owing $2000 to expecting a return from the IRS from $200!

I'm so glad I found Rachelle. Not only is her advice super helpful, but she's very generous with her time and expertise and always answers every little nagging question I have. She also got me using a better system so I can keep track of my expenses and make future tax years less of a mess for both of us. :) I feel like it's a way more personal and approachable relationship than I had with my former accountant, too!

We recently started working with Rachelle after our previous longtime bookkeeper moved out of the area.  I was really hesitant about finding someone new due to some bad experiences with some past bookkeepers, but I took a chance with Rachelle and I am very happy that I did.  I contacted a number of bookkeepers that I found on Yelp and she was only one of two companies that actually responded (it's amazing how bookkeepers do not answer emails or phone calls).  

I really liked that fact that Rachelle is a licensed CPA and has worked at a "big four" firm.  In addition to her solid technical skills, she is extremely efficient and simply wonderful to work with.  In fact, for the first time ever in our nine years of business, our other tax CPA had no complaints about our bookkeeping and found no errors.  I highly recommend Rachelle!

I had a rather difficult tax situation with a state-to-state move, starting a business and some other tax liability issues. Ms. Calina sat down with me, discussed my options, and prepared my taxes for my prior state of residence and for my federal returns. She also gave me some good advice about how to go about making my business "official" and what I can do to minimize my tax liability in future years.

I was hesitant about using a tax preparer because I'd had a bad experience with one many years ago in my previous state of residence, but Ms. Calina proves that there are some great, and very competent, people doing this work. I'll definitely be using her services again.

Rachelle responded immediately to my email then courteously and swiftly helped me file several years worth of income taxes, which included a business and an overseas fellowship. Everything was prepared within a day of providing it to her. I highly recommend her to anybody in the neighborhood.

I've had Ms. Calina as my accountant for 5 years now and have had consistently excellent service. She is always quick to respond to questions either via phone or email. I had several changes in my finances in the last few years. She has worked diligently to help us figure out a plan to keep from having to pay extra taxes and get onto more solid financial footing. She consistently helps us not just with taxes,  but also with our questions about health savings accounts and our 401k accounts. All in all, she has been an excellent accountant for us and I highly recommend her.
