Entry of all fixed assets and prepare personal property tax returns. Make sure all disposed of assets are written off the books. Accrue all real property taxes and adjust to actual tax billing


2015-2016: Accounts Payable and Administrative Assistant, Royce Corporation

oEliminated unnecessary storing of paper records by contemporaneously saving all scanning of paperwork to the Phoenix office as PDF files organized by type, date, and project

oCreated worksheets in Excel for the administrative manager to calculate monthly workman’s comp deposit premium, which reduced the time for that task from three hours to 30 minutes

2007-2015: Full Charge Bookkeeper, Curtis Plumbing Company Inc.

oReduced the volume of monthly depreciation entries by re-determining dollar and useful-life criteria of what equipment is capitalized versus expensed. This also saved the company on income taxes

oWhen the Transaction Privilege Tax for contractors was changed in 2015 I saved the company over $3,600 that the company would have been required to pay on unsellable lead pipe inventory

2001-2007: Accounting Support Specialist II, National Bank of Arizona

oSaved the bank $42,000 over a 7-year period by alerting the VP of Corporate Properties to NOT sign a lease extension of the Tempe branch until he could re-negotiate the “expense stop” which at $4.25 per square foot was too low in comparison with comparable commercial properties for 2006

oCaught a property-tax pass-through for the Scottsdale 101 branch on land leased originally by the State of Arizona. Such land has NO property taxes to pass on!

oHad $5,300 in CAM charges refunded for the Central Phoenix branch which had a cap on CAM charge increases of 8% over the life of the lease, not annually as per the property managers

oReduced personal property and income tax by changing the asset acquisition form. The new form asked if the asset replaced an existing one. If so, the existing asset was written off.

1996-2001: Technical Support Specialist, Intuit Inc.

oDiscovered a “shipment-stopping” bug in the prerelease of QuickBooks 5.0 (1997). The entry of a negative number in the Estimate form would cause the calculations to yield nonsense numbers. I was asked to justify the business need for fixing this, in which I referred to the credit a landscape contractor issues for usable mature trees removed in an installation
