I live in Livermore, CA and I need a recommendation for a tax accountant/CPA for my taxes. I have purchased my first out of state investment, and would like use a great CPA that is in my area.
@Israel R. ,
What other cities are near Livermore?
You definitely need someone qualified, does not have to be a CPA, could be an Enrolled Agent or an attorney. Just make sure they specialize in tax and have significant experience dealing with real estate investors.
Here is a great list of questions to ask a potential accountant: http://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/51/topics/70447-questions-to-ask-a-cpa
Also check out the www.NAEA.org page in your search. It should help you find someone local. If someone comes to me, I'll send them your way.
If you need help in your search or want to verify something don't hesitate to ask.
For example: I have clients worldwide and things are just as easy as I e-mail them, talking on the phone. I even use Skype and TeamViewer to communicate with clients so I'd highly recommend looking for one of the best with great references that interviews well with you.
So look for someone you can connect with that works out for your situation.
Feel free to ask here if you have questions

Israel- I use Garson Soe in Walnut Creek. He is both an attorney and CPA. He is very familiar with commercial real estate and he does both my taxes and my out of state real estate business taxes. PM me and I will send you his contact information.
