Delivering results with you, not at you.

Relationship-Focused Solutions


Tired of feeling like your profits are going to the IRS?  You may be paying more in taxes than you need to.  Our proactive tax planning services help identify opportunities to implement legal, tax saving strategies that can help maximize your available deductions and minimize taxes paid.  We follow a three phase approach when delivering our planning services:


  • Seek out missed opportunities

  • Identify available tax saving strategies

  • Prepare a formal written plan document

  • Deliver an actionable road map for implementation

  • Available for ongoing support

We provide a written tax plan that can serve as a road map to reducing your current and future tax burden through the effective use of documented strategies and business practices.

advisory and consulting

We recognize that we are not everything for everyone, and we're very comfortable admitting that fact.  There are times, however, that we do possess a required knowledge, skill or resource that is not currently available within your company.

Given our specialized backgrounds, we are prepared to assist with projects that would require significant additional training in order to complete in-house.

  • Financing assistance

  • Industry benchmarking analysis

  • Strategic planning

  • Business plan development and documentation

  • Reasonable compensation analysis

  • Subject matter expertise

  • Corporate compliance and documentation

  • Internal audit and compliance review

  • Risk assessment and control analysis

To discuss your current need or take action on a project that continues to be put off, email or call us today at 360-474-5892.

tax problem solving

From what we have seen, very rarely will ignoring a problem lead to a resolution, let alone a positive outcome. There are formal processes to follow and rules applicable to working through tax problems. Our taxpayer representation and tax resolution services follow a three phase approach:

  1. Investigation and analysis

  2. Return to compliance

  3. Application for resolution

After receiving the appropriate authorizations, we can review your case information, provide solutions to get you back into a compliant position and assist you with strategically evaluating your options to resolving your tax problems.

We hear similar radio spots to those our customers hear, claiming to settle your outstanding tax obligations for pennies on the dollar. While those outcomes are possible under certain circumstances, each and every case is evaluated independently and the results of the evaluation are not determined within a thirty second radio advertisement.

Our track record for successfully resolving our customers’ tax problems stands on its own. See more about tax problem representation.

To have your case evaluated, please schedule your appointment today by calling 360-474-5892 or through e-mail.

Tate’s ability to help us reach our financial goals and obtain financing while providing top notch customer service impressed us. We have tried a few accountants in the past - and no one compares.
