Unpaid Debt Taking Your Tax Refund? 

We all look forward to receiving our tax refunds, but what if you were expecting a refund and it never arrived?  It may be because you have outstanding federal or state debts—and not just tax-related debts.  The Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Fiscal Service (BFS) issues federal tax refunds, and Congress authorizes BFS to reduce your refund through its Treasury Offset Program (TOP) to pay the following…

Barry Peters

Barry A. Peters is the Managing Director of Premier Tax & Finance, providing tax and financial management services to start-ups, small businesses and individuals. PTF has a strong staff with experienced bookkeepers, tax preparers and administrators.

Peters began his career as a Corporate Internal Auditor for billion-dollar companies such as United Technologies, Quaker Oats, TransAmerica & Rheem Mfg. This is where he developed his internal control expertise, analytical skills and general accounting knowledge.

Peters has been preparing taxes since he received his CPA in 1984. Until 2014, tax accounting was a secondary service in that working as a startup CFO was top priority, leaving little time available for tax preparation. In 2014 the focus of the company shifted to tax preparation and representation. Peters obtained his Enrolled Agent (EA) designation from the IRS so that people from all states can be served. As a result, the company changed its name from Premier Financial Management to Premier Tax and Finance to reflect the emphasis on tax. Peters has served as Managing Director of Premier Tax and Finance since 2010.
