I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting. Shortly thereafter I began my career with a Costa Mesa CPA firm, performing a wide variety of services including Audit, Review, Compilation, SEC reporting, litigation support, and general bookkeeping & accounting. During tax season I gained valuable experience preparing Corporate, Partnership, Individual, and Trust and Estate returns. After obtaining my CPA license in 2011, Matthew J Torchia, CPA A Pro Corp was created later that year. In 2013 I became enrolled to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (Enrolled Agent or EA).
