Andy Frye of Pronto Income Tax

Andy Frye, E.A.


Andy Frye--Andrew Freiburghouse if you prefer the full name--has worked for Pronto Income Tax since he was about 5 years old when he began stuffing envelopes for his father Kent Frye, the majority owner of Pronto Income Tax of California, Inc.  Andy's grandfather Wayne was the founder of Pronto Income Tax.

In 2001, Andy joined the staff of Pronto as a tax preparer in the Monrovia office. With taxes in his blood and a gifted mentor in Casimiro Peña, Andy quickly became a top-producing tax preparer and continued to work in the Monrovia office for the next 10 years honing his craft.  Known for his passion for serving clients and his halfway decent Gringo Spanish, Andy has been a driving force within our company to make sure that we are using the best technology available to create maximum value for our clients.

In January of 2011, Andy set out on a new adventure leading the brand new West Los Angeles office of Pronto Income Tax, our first new location in more than 20 years. Andy then followed this up by starting another new office in Van Nuys which opened in January of 2013.

Meanwhile, Andy and a few key teammates at Pronto created our Pronto Tax School education division with the goal of providing tax education to the masses and creating new jobs and business opportunities nationwide. Currently we have two top-selling online tax education products, Pronto Tax Class and, and Andy is in progress with a number of other tax education projects.

Always hungry for a new challenge, Andy is currently on hiatus from personally preparing tax returns and has set his sights on completing the build-out of our tax education division, which he views as the key to empowering the next generation of Pronto Tax Professionals.  Although he is not preparing tax returns at the moment, Andy remains key in the training component of our business, while also helping with some of the more advanced tax consulting and planning duties and helping to provide tax problem resolution services.

Andy is licensed to represent taxpayers before the IRS as an Enrolled Agent. Andy's success rate in helping clients get rid of tax problems has been quite high with numerous clients saving tens of thousands of dollars. 

Andy has personally prepared more than 10,000 tax returns and trained thousands of other tax professionals nationwide.

Andy is a cum laude graduate of Santa Clara University.

Andy is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program.

In addition to his work here at Pronto, Andy has published hundreds of articles about financial topics ranging from taxes to insurance to mortgages. To view some of Andy's writing and journalism work, you can plug "Andrew Freiburghouse" into Google and see a few samples.
