About

History

Crippen & Associates is the evolution of several former firms acquired and partnerships participated in since the 1960’s.  Many of the clients from the original firms are still with us today.  We have been providing accounting services under the same leadership since 1978 and in 2017 welcomed the next generation of leadership into the firm.  Our accountants share the firm’s dedication to providing excellent services and we have enjoyed multiple relationships with them extending beyond 30 years. The accountants in Crippen & Associates bring a wealth of experience to our clients and they undergo annual training to maintain their knowledge of tax laws so that they can continue to serve our clients with the best information available. This kind of consistency and success is due to our desire to provide quality accounting, tax, and consulting services.

Our clientele includes but is not limited to the following: Agriculture (Farming, Processing, Marketing), Professional Practices, Non-Profit Organizations, Doctors, Auto Repair Shops, Wholesalers and Retailers, Restaurants, Crop Dusters, Realtors and real estate transactions including tax deferred exchanges, etc.

We currently have 2 offices, Marysville and Colusa, however, we service clients from Fresno, CA to Alaska, and from the west coast to the east coast.  When clients have moved away from Northern California they have continued to use our services.
