What’s New at Clemmer?


Monday- Thursday 8:30-5:00 & Friday 8:30-12:00

08/13/2019 - As of the second week of August, Linda has been in full retirement mode! As the founder of Clemmer & Associates, her experience extended to all areas of tax planning, accounting, as well as research and compliance. Linda’s knowledge of the field and relationship with her clients were invaluable and her presence in the office will be greatly missed. However, John and the rest of your Clemmer team are committed to making this transition as seamless as possible for our clients. Afterall, that’s what we are here for…to ensure that your time is spent doing what is important to you!

A few fun facts about Clemmer & Associates owner John Burns…he has owned the firm since July of 2018 and been a part of the team for 4 years prior to that. John has two wonderful granddaughters, 6-year-old Addison and 8-month-old Gracen, and just welcomed his first grandson Kase on August 5th! John is passionate about Auburn football -WAR EAGLE- and loves watching his favorite movie Spector to wind down after a long day at the office. For more about John, check out our About Us page, shoot him a quick email at, give him a call or stop by the office!

07/08/2019 – Just before the July 4th holiday, Clemmer & Associates installed a new phone system with brand new, state of the art phones. We are grateful for your patience while we are trying to figure out all the cool options these new phones have to offer. You will also find that you can leave a voicemail for the team member of your choosing when calling in afterhours now. The hold music is a nice new addition as well! John Burns has been busy spending time getting all the filed extensions completed. Although we have until October to get them finished, we know how important returns are for our clients. Our team is also putting energy into educating ourselves on best practices and procedures for keeping our client’s best interest at the forefront of what we do. We strive to offer the most up to date and cost-effective services, while maintaining the integrity of the services we provide. We here at Clemmer & Associates want to thank all our clients again for the patience and understanding they are showing during any sort of growing pains Clemmer may experience. We are all excited about the upgrades in the office, but still are committed to keeping our focus on what is most important…quality relationships and wonderful clients.

06/05/19 - You may have noticed a couple of new faces in the office over the past couple of months. Be sure to check out our About Us page to learn all about your Clemmer team members! Also, Ms Linda will be here part- time going forward. She will be available through email, but we encourage you to reach out to the rest of the team here at the office for any questions or issues that may arise. John, Liboria and Ashley are all still here full time as well to ensure you are given the great service you are used to. Some other things that have been going on, we have upgraded our computer system and monitors, making our service more efficient and reliable. We also have initiated a strategy to begin going as paperless as possible. This keeps our costs down, which allows us to keep our fees low. We still hold strong to our commitment to providing a quality experience. We strive to maintain an impeccable performance when it comes to our clients. While we are excited about all the changes, we also understand what it is that has made Clemmer & Associates successful for all these years…exceptional service, quality relationships and wonderful clients.
