Why do we do what we do?

We believe in helping those who want to keep what they have earned while delivering an unmatched comfort to help preserve part of their legacy and pass forward to their future generations.

How we do it differently than anyone else?

We have 3 unique traits that our business operates – specialization, collaboration, and relationships. Many tax advisors have a wide variety of knowledge, but not know any one specific area better than anyone else. Here we each strive to have an additional specialty that separates us from any other service out there. Our size and culture allow the free flow of information between advisors so that we may arrive at the best answer not just the first one that comes to mind. Over 50 years we have been forging relationships with our clients because as we are family, so are you. We depend on the trust that is formed to bring in those who have yet to hear of us. Finally, we actually have a 4th unique, it is not so much a trait as it is the holistic approach to our clients wealth management. You cannot make a tax decision without first also considering the financial and estate planning consequences. We have partnered ourselves with an amazing team that shares this idea that only as one can we help you make the best decisions for you and your legacy.

What is GTBS about?

We give you a cold bottle of water on a hot summer day and a warm blanket on a cold winter night. We handle tax controversy, your accounting needs and your tax return. When it’s all said and done, we will be connected to you for generations. Though really, we’ve always been there for you…even though you may not have known it. Now that you do, we invite you to come visit – we’ll have a chat and we’ll see how we can help you.

My First Audit. I had just received notice of my first Tax Audit and my personal anxiety was high!!  The notices from the IRS and the State were quit upsetting. Fortunately, I was working with David Hilliard at Grandfield Associates and he was able to calm me down and help me fix the situation. We had to find documents from three years ago, but David helped my build my tax history and justify my deductions.  The key note here is that my overall tax bill from the original audit dropped by over 80% leaving me is a solid standing with the both the IRS and California State Tax Board. I am very thankful to have David on my financial team and I trust him with all my family financial needs.
