Real Clients, Real Stories, Real Reviews

Consummate professionalism, bottom line. As a former green beret, I know and have total respect and appreciation working with subject matter experts (SME) in their chosen field. Rohit Kalra is one of these SME's.

The IRS placed a levy on my wages setting off a chain reaction encompassing every aspect of my financial, as well as, my personal life. I spent a few years overseas as a government contractor. I did not file my federal and state income taxes for several years. My overall tax picture was a train wreck. My wife saw Rohit's firm on the internet, we read several performance reviews and I called Rohit. Once engaged, Rohit layed out a scheme of maneuver for moving forward, I agreed. Rohit executed with a very direct sense of urgency. Rohit stayed engaged with all agencies and I throughout the process, kept me vividly aware of the status of my case and continued to bring his expertise to bear with all entities and me, even when I had to expectantly fly to Alaska for a week prior to a specific deadline having to be met with the IRS. A tremendous amount of work had to be accomplished by Rohit, in a very short period of time. No doubt other companies would have capitulated, whereas Rohit moved forward, fought the fight and was 100% successful in accomplishing every end-state set throughout the process.

One of the TRUE benefits is KNOWING Rohit will do everything he can to ensure my rights as a taxpayer are protected and exercised. Knowing Rohit and the level of professionalism he brings to the table, lends itself to a piece of mind I truly appreciate and value. Rohit has put my financial tax burden back on the up and up with both federal and state agencies so that my wife and I can move forward in a positive light with peace."

As a corporate attorney, over the past 20 years I have worked with hundreds of CPAs and tax professionals, and I can unequivocally state Rohit Kalra is the best of the best. Rohit expertly guided me through a series of tax issues spanning four years-- he assessed the situation, we discussed the options, and from there, Rohit implemented and executed a plan with precision. Clearly, Rohit recognizes the anxiety associated with interacting with the IRS. He not only provides expert advise and counsel, but Rohit has the gift of putting the situation in perspective, giving hope that yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot imagine working with any other CPA firm and plan work to with Rohit always. I am forever grateful for Rohit's representation.

It was a long, arduous process getting me back on track, but Rohit was there every step of the way with help and guidance. He was patient throughout the entire process - start to finish - and always took the time to explain any next steps in detail and to make sure I understood everything being done. I had quite a mess to cleanup and he methodically worked through it with me to completion to obtain the desired result. I would highly recommend Rohit to anyone I know that's in need of the tax services he provides. He's a consummate professional and extremely good at what he does. It was a very streamlined process overall - I was the only issue in the equation.

Rohit in one word - Amazing! If you find yourself in a bad position with the IRS, I would strongly urge you to contact him immediately. Rohit has been my accountant for 5 years so when we had a family member who had an unbelievable tax issue - 6 years of back taxes with penalties and a tax bill of $70,000 plus, he was the person we turned to. We were completely overwhelmed with an aggressive auditor and never ending requests from the IRS. One call to Rohit and our stress levels started to drop. With his expertise and patience he was able to deal with the auditor and get the request under control. He explained every step in the process and what options were available. Given the number of years and the staggering amount involved I didn't expect much could be done. Imagine my surprise when the IRS waived the penalties for 4 years. I didn't even know that was possible. I thought that would be the end of the process and we were still facing a large tax bill. Rohit laid out all the options and encouraged the offer in compromise option. We relied on his experience and went for it. If I was surprised by the penalties being waived, I was shocked when they accepted our offer of $100 for the $70K tax bill. Unbelievable! I still cannot believe this was all resolved for $100. We will never be able to thank Rohit for all that he has done for our family. I highly recommend Rohit Kalra to anyone if they need help with the IRS and the difficult tax code. Thank you Rohit!!"
Kalra CPA does an outstanding job of professional representation with the IRS. I would recommend Rohit Kalra to anyone facing tax difficulties or an audit without reservation. Having had a stroke, more stress was something I did not need. IRS Audits are inherently stressful, but Rohit Kalra made the entire audit experience much less stressful by giving my case immediate attention, keeping me constantly informed, always being readily available, and quickly determining that even in the worst case scenario my financial exposure was something I could handle.

As a pastor of a large church who had to retire because of a stroke, facing an IRS audit knowing that many areas of ministerial tax law fall in the "gray" area with conflicting court rulings--the whole thought of an audit, and then possibly having to face protracted legal action was extremely stressful. My doctors recommended that I find the best possible representation to reduce the stress as much as possible as quickly as possible. One of my high net worth church members consulted their CPA and Rohit Kalra was their recommendation. Selecting Mr. Kalra to represent me was the best decision I could have made. He immediately contacted me, assured me he would make the entire process as stress-free as possible. He delivered on that promise. He was very professional, supportive, informative, helpful, and reassuring. He researched thoroughly ministerial tax regulations and law. He was readily available for questions and was careful to "cover all the bases". Mr. Kalra's preparation for the audit meeting was comprehensive and, as a result, he was able to resolve the issue quickly. He not only saved me a lot of money, but also more importantly in my case a lot of worry and stress that could have led to another stroke. I highly recommend Rohit Kalra to anyone, whatever their income level or profession, if they need help with the IRS and our difficult tax code."

Absolutely outstanding job. Extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, always concerned and willing to go the extra mile to get results- I could not have found a better tax team to work with. Kalra CPA actually saved my entire retirement investments from the IRS. I had fallen behind paying my Federal Taxes and the IRS took everything I had saved during my lifetime. I was deployed overseas at the time and resolution of tax issues was very challenging. After contacting the Kalra CPA team- they immediately got involved and presented me with a clear and detailed "way ahead". They went back ten (10) years, did all of the research, tracked down all of the required information and even acted as the mediator with the IRS. Contact in the Middle East is very challenging at times but the Kalra CPA team would not rest until every issue was resolved to my satisfaction. Always positive, always working for resolution of all issues, no matter how small- I could not be happier with the results. Every dollar the IRS took from my accounts was returned to me with interest- simply unbelievable. I am retired military and have worked with numerous organizations throughout the world- the Kalra CPA organization is the best and I consider myself very lucky!"
There are not enough words to properly thank you for your time and efforts concerning my tax issue for 2010, 2011, 2012. I know you worked on my case with the IRS over a period of several months. Your services have saved us more than $80,000.00 and I can’t believe it. This is like a dream to me but all the credit goes to your firm Rohit. Your services are outstanding and I truly appreciate your professionalism and abilities. You aren’t just a CPA, you’re a ‘business partner’ with your clients. I also thank your firm for the advice and the education you gave me which is going to help me going forward in my business. I look forward to telling everyone what a wonderful job you did. God Bless Your Firm!"
A Satisfied Client
Excellent! I would gladly recommend your services to a friend or colleague without any hesitation. Thank you for your help. Rohit's use of technology made the process really easy, sharing a screen, central repository for electronic documents, etc. A big thank you to Rohit for all the tax help. He is a tax subject matter expert and very calming when talking about tax problems. I appreciate all the work you did for me helping me sort out my situation. Thank you again for all your help."

Rohit vigorously advocated for my tax situation and delivered a successful outcome. Rohit was very attentive and responsive, making me feel as if I was his only client; truly, an outstanding measure of customer service. I am grateful and thankful for the successful outcome in my tax situation. Rohit delivered on all points and he is to be commended for it. Rohit, thank you so much for all the personal attention you gave to me and my case, your level of service is 5 stars in my book and I wish there were more people like you with the level of dedication, commitment, and desire to do their best for their clients. God bless you!"

After an unsuccessful initial IRS audit, I began calling and meeting with tax attorneys and tax CPAs to support an appeal. During the selection process it became clear that there were few “experts” in the nuances of passive loss limitations, rental period length and material participation in regard to rental property. Rohit impressed me as a qualified individual that would apply the time and research necessary for an appeal case. Additionally I appreciated his “pay as you go” business model with incremental client $ commitments based on the appeal process. The end result was a “No Change” IRS audit appeal letter stating that there was no deficiency in the two years audited, no overassessment warranted and no refiling or further action required. I am an extremely satisfied client."
Burke, Virginia
My experience was excellent. Mr. Kalra was very thorough and clearly informed me of my options at every stage. If I failed to keep in touch, Mr. Kalra was persistent about ensuring I followed through. If it were not for his persistence, my taxes would still be a mess. I had a few years of unresolved tax matters and I plan to purchase a house soon. These issues could have hindered my ability to purchase a house. Mr. Kalra is clearly risk-averse so I do not have any concerns that my tax-related issues have all been resolved. I am very relieved to have these issues no longer hanging over my head and I will easily be able to file my taxes on my own next year.

I am very happy with the services I received from Kalra CPA. I had a complicated employer payroll tax issue with the IRS that needed to be addressed quickly, and hiring Rohit Kalra was the best thing I ever did. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. He thoroughly explained pertinent IRS policies and procedures, and clearly described all possible resolutions to our case. He worked diligently and aggressively to help our small company work out an acceptable payment agreement with the IRS. I am relieved to have a resolution with the IRS, and I don’t believe anyone else could have handled our case more efficiently or professionally. Rohit Kalra is a highly reliable and ethical tax expert, and I highly recommend him."
Warrenton, Virginia
I am extremely grateful to Rohit and his team at Kalra CPA for undertaking the task of correcting over a decade of IRS tax issues. Rohit's consultative approach and expertise in IRS resolutions calmed my own nerves, as he took over the extended process of bringing into compliance tax filings more than a decade in arrears due to extensive overseas work. His diligence over two years of efforts paid off with a savings of over $100,000 versus the original amounts presented by the IRS.The team at Kalra CPA provides reliable, consistent, personable service. They're reachable around the clock - though I'm sure Rohit does sleep occasionally - always willing to spend the time to walk through complex issues in a comprehensive manner. Not only have they organized a nearly impossible client, and resolved my past issues, but they've added immeasurable improvement to my ongoing and future business/tax planning. I'm a client for life!"

After several years serving as a caregiver for both elderly parents and experiencing life-threatening medical issues myself, I had to face a serious disorganization with my finances and tax accounting. I sought professional help from Rohit Kalra and am deeply grateful for his assistance in reconstructing and correcting all my issues. Mr. Kalra is extremely skilled in communications and can speak to any topic with a client to educate them on the issue, the recommended solution and the plan for execution. Mr. Kalra possesses three of the most important qualities in professional service today -- knowledgeable, experienced, professional. Mr. Kalra took my issues seriously but with sensitivity to the human factor related to the reason for neglect of my own recordkeeping practices. My financial challenges with the IRS were successfully resolved and well-documented. My professional experience with Mr. Kalra was extremely positive and I highly recommend his services."

Working with Rohit and his team has been a great experience for our entire Company. For the better part of a decade, Rohit has allowed us to focus on the core competencies of our underlying business while making sure our accounting, tax, and reporting activities remain in solid shape. In addition, Rohit’s team has seamlessly managed arising complications associated with our business’s operations with entities and staff in multiple tax jurisdictions. Even during a period where our firm had to address fairly complicated issues relating to back-taxes in multiple states, Rohit’s team was able to manage this process for us, which in turn allowed us to continue to focus on our revenue generating business activities. More so, our company has successfully operated without the need for any type of audit. Our successful relationship with Rohit and his team has helped create an environment where our company has been able to grow; we were recently recognized as one of the Inc. 500 fastest growing private businesses in America. Thanks Rohit!"

Phenomenal customer service! After briefly explaining my predicament during a phone consult, Rohit quickly identified and diagnosed the source of a nearly $1 Million dollar audit adjustment and outlined the necessary steps to resolve the issue. His immediate response (hours, not days) and resolution of my issue are a true testament to his expertise and commitment to his client. Thank you!"
