I have used Claudine and her company for many many years for both my personal accounting and business accounting. Claudine aided in setting up my business and has been instrumental in keeping it going to this date. She has prepared my personal and company tax returns for over ten years now and helped in the event that I did not provide all of the necessary documentation. She consistently provides clarity if I am unsure about a new regulation or a specific deduction, etc. She is someone that my family and I rely on for her expertise and reliability. She is outstanding in her field.

Very professional and always courteous. Claudine has prepared my taxes for many years and I have never had any problems or issues. She reviews your information thoroughly and advises accordingly. She responds quickly to all questions and her staff is amazing. Awesome service!

My No. 1 CPA - Mrs. Claudine Powell-Phillip. I've utilized her services for approximately ten or more years. I don't intend to leave unless Phillip & Associates goes out of business. With her courteous, professional and knowledgeable staff, (not to mention if I have an issue where I need good judgment and advise), Claudine takes time out from her busy schedule to assist. I salute her and recommend others to get on board!!

I have had a few accountants and none of them really understood my business quite as well as Claudine. Before I met Claudine I did not know that my business was incorrectly classified with the IRS which meant I was paying much more than I should have in taxes. Since 2008 Claudine has managed to correct my filing status with the IRS, helped me set up a retirement account and organize my LLC. Claudine and her team are an invaluable asset for any business and I would highly recommend their services.

How You’re Missing Legal Tax Deductions

Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes.

But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!
