Kimberly Calongne Tara, Chief Executive Officer, Certified Public Accountant and Certified Tax Coach at The Tara CPA Firm LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in finance.
Ms. Tara became involved in her profession because she wanted to connect with her clients more frequently. She wanted to establish a place for her clients to be heard, and she opened The Tara CPA Firm LLC in 2016. Her firm values the relationship it has with its clients and speaks to them more often than just during tax season once a year.

She is grateful to give her clients a path to financial freedom, time, and allow them to save tax dollars. In five years, Ms. Tara would like to triple the revenue of the company, hire two more employees, and better serve more clients. She wishes to help positively impact business owners and individuals in guiding them to realize their best potential in their businesses.
In addition to her primary endeavors, Ms. Tara served as chairperson of the New Orleans Medical Mission Services Gala, on the planning and development committee of the Junior League of New Orleans, and as a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House in New Orleans and at the NOLA Sugarplum Ball. She holds a membership with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the American Institute of Certified Planners, and the Society of Louisiana CPAs (LCPA), and co-authored the book “Writeoffs to the Rescue! How to save yourself from the burden of high taxes using write-offs, loopholes, and deductions,” published in 2019. In preparation for her career, Ms. Tara earned a Bachelor of Science in accountancy from Auburn University in 2013.
