Service Update - COVID-19

Due to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, our office has established a business continuity plan and will continue to serve our clients in the safest way possible.

Our staff will be working remotely and will be closing our office until further notice. We will resume in office operations and will be available for phone calls once our government agencies deem it safe. We ask that you please remain patient and consider the following: The IRS has granted taxpayers relief by giving extensions on all income tax payments up to July 15th. The extensions will be valid once an electronic extension is filed, which we will do for you.

We assure you that we will continue to work all files diligently and timely.

If you should have an emergency, we are providing Steve Whyte's contact information where he can be reached. PLEASE be extremely considerate and thoughtful on whether your matter is truly an emergency prior to calling. Steve Whyte's PH: 909-720-6876

Whyte & Associates, Inc. is in Rancho Cucamonga, California, just minutes from Upland. We are proud to offer a personal tax planning and filing, as well as a full suite of business services. Whatever your needs, you can count on Steve Whyte and his team.

Why plan?

Imagine you made two large charitable contributions, exceeding the deduction limit for this year. You do not plan to donate again, so you will have no charitable contribution deduction in the next tax year. Now imagine you had consulted a personal tax accountant in advance and worked out a plan to divide your philanthropy between two tax years. This scenario is just one example of the countless ways that tax planning can save money and give you peace of mind.

A few of the questions we can help you answer include:

  • Major expenditures – How much, if any, of the amount is tax deductible? Would the deduction be more benificial in this tax year or the next? If the expense were divided between tax years, would the total deduction be greater?
  • Retirement savings – Are you eligible for a ROTH IRA? If so, is it a better choice than a traditional IRA? How much of your IRA contribution is deductible? Will your current level of contribution support your expenses during retirement?
  • Investing – How will investment income affect your taxes? What is considered ordinary income, short term capital gain, or long-term capital gains? Should you hold an investment longer before selling? If you incur a loss, will it lower your tax bracket?
  • Credits – Who qualifies as a dependent? Can the parent get a tax credit for a dependent child’s tuition? Do you get a “green” credit for your electric car or home solar system? What other credits might you qualify for?
