Restaurant Owners Use Hoffmaster CPA for 

Year-End Taxes

Chris Sallen and Rick Davis, founders/owners of a successful chain of casual-dining restaurants in Palm Beach County, Florida, use Anthony Hoffmaster, Hoffmaster CPA, for completion and filing of their corporate and personal year-end taxes.

The restaurant, named C.R. Chicks, serves lunch and dinner and caters events. It specializes in rotisserie chicken marinated in honey-barbecue sauce cooked slowly over Brazilian oak logs.


Since opening the first eatery in 1992, business partners Chris and Rick have grown the chain to seven restaurants and a commissary with a total of 180 employees.

“I concentrate on the quality of our food and the quality of our people,” says Chris. “I let Anthony concentrate on our end-of-year taxes and filing them with the IRS.”

Anthony, who lived in West Palm Beach, Florida, before moving his family and his business to Wake Forest, N.C., has had C.R. Chicks as a client since 2017.

Chris appreciates Anthony’s thoroughness and promptness in saving the business money and filing the annual tax returns.  “He does a good job and gets right back to me anytime I have questions. When talking to a lay person about taxes he is understandable,” Chris says. “I recommend him and would tell anyone that he gets the work done on time and may save you money like he’s done for us.”

Executor Hires Hoffmaster for 

Estate and Personal Tax Assistance

Stewart Pope was grateful to find CPA Anthony Hoffmaster, a tax professional who specializes in estates and trusts.

When Stewart’s 96-year-old father died in January 2016, just a few months after his mother died, he and his brother were named co-executors of the estate.

In addition to assisting with the estate tax returns, Anthony helped with filing the personal taxes for Stewart’s dad and mom.


“The estate was very complicated. Not that my dad was a wealthy man, but there were limited partnerships, small stocks, life insurance policies and other things that added to the tax complications,” says Stewart, an investment advisor who has lived in Raleigh all of his life.

“Anthony assisted me in dealing with the IRS along with all that was needed for the estate to go to probate. He was very understanding and patient with me. I felt he was very reasonable and fair as far as his costs.”

Today Stewart and his brother have their personal taxes completed by Anthony. “We’re happy with him and certainly recommend Anthony to others.”

Tax Advice & Prep for New Principal Owner of 

Engineering Firm

In 2017 when Civil Engineer Eric Perrone, a partner in his firm, was buying in as an owner he sought the services and advice of certified public accountant Anthony Hoffmaster. 

“Anthony prepared and filed my tax returns and advised me on what the tax burdens would be as a new owner in my firm. He helped me plan for the upcoming years, transitioning from earning wages to taking distributions,” Eric explains.

Eric is one of six principal owners in the Raleigh engineering firm with headquarters in Delaware. The company provides strategic infrastructure and transportation management services. Eric specializes in software implementation.

Originally from Delaware, Eric moved to Raleigh in 2001 from Austin, Texas. He lives in North Raleigh with his wife and two children.

“I’ve been very happy with how comprehensive Anthony is and that he took the time to meet with me to answer all my questions,” says Eric.

“He’s was helpful in getting me prepared for taxes as a business owner and corrected my misconceptions.”
