Personalized Service to Help You Succeed

Our team of Claremont tax experts understand that every situation is different, so we offer solutions that take relevant regulations and unique circumstances into consideration equally. We are well-versed in tackling problems at the federal and state levels, and we can assist both business and individual taxpayers with a variety of issues:

  • Non-Filed Returns and Back Taxes: Often, a year's tax obligations may go unpaid, not because of intentional mistakes, but from a lack of understanding. Not only do we prepare unfiled returns, but we also answer all your questions and help you plan for timely filing in the future.
  • Wage Garnishments, Liens, Levies, and Seizures: If garnished wages, levies, and liens or seizure of assets threaten your financial well-being, we provide assistance to mitigate these penalties or sometimes avoid them altogether.
  • Audits: If you receive a notice from the IRS, you can have confidence that we will know how to respond. We will review the notice, explain what it means, and map out an approach that will achieve the quickest resolution possible. You'll probably never have to deal directly with the IRS.
  • Payroll Tax: Payroll taxes are one area where extra care is essential. Even minor errors in withholdings can result in fines for your business, and they won't do your employees any favors, either. We use our expertise to ensure your payroll taxes are accurate, up-to-date, and delivered on time, saving you money and stress.
  • Sales Tax: If you are having trouble collecting, calculating, and paying sales tax, our team can help. Problems involving sales tax can get complicated, especially if you don't know and follow the rules. We can help you avoid common stumbling blocks, understand the terminology, and identify what to tax.

How Can I Settle My Tax Debt?

Our Claremont professionals can resolve tax debt problems by assessing your eligibility for payment plans or currently non-collectible status. We work with the IRS directly on your behalf and provide them with any information they need to consider alternative solutions.

The IRS Offer In Compromise: You may be able to settle a tax liability for less than the full amount with an offer in compromise (OIC). If there is doubt that you can pay the total amount, or if there are exceptional circumstances, you may qualify for this program. Your offer must be paid in a lump sum or short-term installments.


Payment Plans: If you do not qualify for offers-in-compromise, there may be another way to resolve tax debt. We can help you set up a payment plan and give you more time to generate the funds. You must be up to date on your tax returns for the current year, including estimated quarterly payments. There are some drawbacks to initiating a payment plan, such as interest and penalties that will continue to accrue.


Bankruptcy: If you are considering bankruptcy, it is essential to study all the possible outcomes. Filing can be confusing, so it is best to enlist the help of a professional like Claudia Topete, CPA.


Not Currently Collectible: Your account can be placed in the not currently collectible status if you cannot afford a payment plan, or your income has dropped drastically. The IRS can hold off on collecting taxes if you can prove that you have nothing left over after living expenses. This does not make the tax debt go away, and you will continue to accumulate penalties and interest.
