  • CTEC California Tax Education Council – Director

Randy has three grown children and is the proud “Papa Randy” to Eddie, his grandson who is now living on his own.

Randy’s entrepreneurial spirit led him into two businesses – first as the owner Big W Liquors in Santa Clara, and now as The Tax Man in Willow Glen.

Randy and his brother operated Big W Liquors for 6 years. The brothers built a substantial business, with a loyal customer base-customers who remain friends to this day. After Fair Trade was enacted, the brothers decided to pursue other interests. Randy laughs about his bookkeeping for the liquor store. “I did everything by hand in hard-bound ledger books with good old-fashioned pencils”.

Tax and bookkeeping seemed a natural avenue to explore after leaving the liquor store. Randy started his tax business in 1986 while working for a local bank. He was also certified by the State of California to teach tax preparation courses. After referring to himself as “Randy, The Tax Man” in his phone conversations, the name seemed a natural for his business. Randy continued to build his business while working for a local attorney in the tax department. Eventually, his own business grew to the point where he worked full time for himself.

Those pencils and ledgers have been replaced. Randy uses a network of computers and sophisticated software in his business today. The Tax Man provides tax and bookkeeping services for Individuals, Estates, Trusts, Partnerships, and Corporations. He specializes in small to medium sized businesses. In addition to tax preparation and bookkeeping, Randy also does payroll, audits (all agencies), and business development for his clients.

Randy’s hobbies include dancing, four-wheeling, poker, and traveling with his wife, Cathy.
