About Us

Beach Cities Tax and Books was established in 1997 by Monique Wright, CPA who acquired the business from a long-time South Bay accountant John Kanuit, for whom she worked after graduating with a degree in Business Economics from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Since then, the business has expanded with a growing and diverse clientele. Not only has the client list grown, but our capabilities have expanded as well. As of today, Beach Cities Tax and Books operates on a wireless network, integrating the latest tax software and a friendly service to give our clients the best accounting solutions available.

As always, our goal is to lead individuals and small business to success.
