Tax Services: Planning, Preparation, and IRS Representation

With more than six decades of tax experience and expertise, Anthony Joseph Pope delivers value when it comes to income, payroll and sales tax issues.

At Anthony Joseph Pope, we understand the stress that is commonly associated with doing your taxes. It’s a substantial amount of work that typically falls outside one’s comfort zone, tax laws are constantly changing and becoming more complex, and a lot is at stake, whether you’re preparing your small business’ taxes or a personal return.

We have assisted thousands of clients with their tax returns over the years—from data entry to representation before the IRS—and most of them have the same goals: 

Maximize savings and minimize payments. Ensure you won’t have to incur any penalties. Avoid a situation where a levy is placed on your bank account. Most of all, keep yourself and your business off the IRS’ radar screen.

It’s for all these reasons that when it comes to taxes, seeking the advice, guidance and support of an experienced, trusted professional makes sense. We take the time to review your unique circumstances and deliver a customized solution that puts you in the best possible situation.

As a family-owned business, we’re able to spend more time with you to understand your situation and financial goals, anticipate your needs, answer your questions, and finally, deliver the greatest refund possible. Understanding the ever-changing tax laws is challenging, but as a multi-functional firm that also offers legal and accounting services, we’re well-positioned to do just that.

When preparing tax returns, at least two members of our staff review each one so that the highest level of quality is delivered. We use innovative tax programs and e-file to maximize accuracy, efficiency and value. Whether accessing or providing information from a desktop, tablet or smart phone, rest assured, your identity and privacy is safe and secure.


IRS Representation

If you’ve been audited or want to avoid being audited, it’s wise to seek the assistance of a trusted professional, someone who has a track record of helping both businesses and individuals. 

We have extensive experience in representing clients before the IRS and many of those cases have involved an offer in compromise (OIC), which allows you to settle your tax debt for less than the full amount you owe. We will access your case to determine whether you’re a good candidate for OIC, represent you before the IRS, and work to achieve the lowest possible amount owed.

There are a multitude of benefits to paying your taxes on time, but we understand that doesn’t always happen for a variety of reasons. Audits enter the picture, and in some cases, that could mean the potential shutdown of your business. We have assisted clients in dealing with a variety of issues, from unreported payroll taxes or problems with sales taxes and income taxes.
