    In the first place, Chaka was very thorough and the quality of her work ethic spoke for itself as did her patience. For me, I prefer qualitative and quantitative services as it relates to tax documentation. Therefore; I highly recommend Chaka Dinkins Bookkeeping Services to individual or any business entity. Thank you.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing varies by service needs.

How did you get started in this business?

I was laid off of my treasury position in 2011. I didn't want to waste my skill set, so I started helping small businesses keep up with their profit and losses. And the rest is history still in the making.

What types of customers have you worked with?

Small business clients, Contractors, Daycare, Schools, Taxi and Freight Drivers, Stylist, Learning Institutions, Individual Families, Medical Professionals, Non Profit Organizations, TaxPayers and Sales.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was hired to overturn a business license revocation due to late returns and back taxes. In less than 45 days, the business was all caught up with late returns, penalties and a solid installment agreement in place. The business was restored. I learned a lot from the experience. But mostly I was very happy to get my client get back on track.
