Tax season is officially upon us, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to decide who’s preparing your taxes.

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), more than 153 million individual tax returns will be filed in 2017. While some choose to file their taxes themselves, others hire an expert to help them navigate changes in tax laws and maximize their returns. 

Reagan Management Services, a full-service accounting practice in Brentwood, has been serving the community since 1979, providing quality service and trustworthy tax expertise.

“We find a strategy that works for our clients,” said Ron Reagan, co-owner of the family-operated firm. “Our tax knowledge is constantly growing. This year alone, there’s more than 800 new tax laws. We have to stay on top of laws that are constantly evolving and find the best way to help our clients.”

Besides income tax services for individuals and small businesses, their services include bookkeeping, business management, financial statements, business entity selection and IRS representation. Regardless of the service, the Reagans build long-lasting relationships with their clients based on trust, compassion for every individual and paramount knowledge of constantly evolving tax laws.

Ron Reagan’s expertise includes being enrolled to practice before the IRS, an elite status awarded by the service for tax representation, and a master’s degree in taxation. He is also a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents, California Society of Enrolled Agents, National Society of Public Accountants and the National Association of Tax Professionals.

His wife, Patricia Reagan, co-owner of Reagan Management Services, is a California registered tax preparer, with a degree in business management and accounting. An integral part of their family-operated firm is their son David York, who also has the elite status of enrolled agent with the IRS and has a bachelor’s degree in business administration.

The family is not only guided by their expertise and professional experience, but also by their commitment to make the world and their community a better place. When they aren’t working, the family is often involved in community service.

“It has always been important for us to give back to the community, as well as give support and encouragement to those in need,” said Patricia. “We have always tried to bring people and different groups together for a common good.”

Ron and Patricia became involved with many nonprofits and community-building groups, including co-founding the Contra Costa Minister’s Conference, which allows them to connect with many nonprofit groups. Ron is currently the chairman of the Contra Costa County Aviation Advisory Committee and sits on the Contra Costa County Airport Land Use Commission.  

“I think people should step out and try to find something they believe in,” said Patricia. “It’s all about finding something you believe in and doing what you can to make the world we live in a better place.”

Their commitment to serve, and expertise in their field, has earned the Reagans respect from the community, as well as loyalty from their clients.

“When you’re dealing with a tax preparer, you need to find someone you can trust, and that’s who the Reagans are,” said John Kenney, owner of JDK & Associates in Brentwood.  “They work with honesty and integrity and are extremely professional and trustworthy.”
