Bad Debt

While the recent store closing might seem like reason enough to write off any uncollected balances due your organization, the IRS doesn't agree. Learn what it takes to take a bad debt deduction.

Final Individual Income Tax Returns are due October 15th

Make sure you have a plan in place for signing, filing, and remitting your federal and state income taxes by that date.

EXCITING NEWS!  BDCo has moved to NAPA. 

After spending more than 30 great years as a resident of St. Helena, BDCo began a search in 2019 for a new office location in Napa that would better suit its needs. The goal was to improve the life/work balance for members of the team without inconveniencing our customers. Our newly completed Napa home meets our requirements perfectly and we can't wait to welcome you for a visit once we are all able to move about freely. 

For now, our office remains closed to visitors and much of our staff will continue to work remotely at their discretion and in accordance with current safety regulations. 

Our new address is :

Brotemarkle, Davis & Co. LLP
1000 Main Street, Suite 250
Napa, CA 94559
