Barbara J Burlew, owner & founder of Burlew Bookkeeping & Tax Service Inc has been providing quality bookkeeping, tax and consulting services since 1990.  While attending Cal State Long Beach (which is located next to the VA Hospital), Barbara became involved in assisting Veteran’s to file their tax returns.  This was a service she volunteered for that gave her a reward of “giving back” to those who served this country and provided us the freedom we so enjoy.  She continued volunteering her services at the Buena Chamber of Commerce, finished her education at Cal State Fullerton and began her practice with the support of many of those clients she volunteered to assist. Burlew Bookkeeping and Tax Service, Inc., has built a reputation of working under the highest level of honesty and integrity without compromise. Whether the need is for tax matters, accounting services, QuickBooks training and consulting, financial statements, business planning or financial guidance, our staff will use our experience, resources and professional discretion to steer you in the best way possible.

What is an Enrolled Agent?
Enrolled Agents are individuals who have demonstrated technical competence in the field of taxation. Enrolled Agents can represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service, are bound by ethical standards and are required to abide by the provisions of U.S. Treasury Department Circular 230 and undergo rigorous background checks conducted by the IRS. A special license issued by the federal government authorizes Enrolled Agents to appear in place of the taxpayer at the Internal Revenue Service. Only Enrolled Agents, Attorneys, and CPA’s may represent taxpayers before the IRS.

Our clients include individuals, sole-proprietorships, partnerships, s-corporations, corporations, limited liability companies, trusts, and non-profit organizations. Our services are tailored to meet your specific situation and we value stepping into a partnership with each of our clients, offering a free initial consultation.
