Charlene Vaughn, Principal, Pinion, LLC

Tax specialist Charlene Vaughn works side-by-side with agricultural producers and others throughout the year to help them make accounting and tax choices that provide a solid foundation for sustainability.

Treating every business like her own, Charlene equips business owners with the information to understand the financial and operational implications of their business decisions whether making a large equipment purchase, adding acreage to their farms, or expanding operations.

Some examples of how Charlene helps:

  • Taking advantage of R&D credits on behalf of a vine and tree producer for experimentations to increase orchard productivity. Those credits freed up $25,000 for additional corporate investments.
  • Properly balancing agricultural producers’ use of bonus depreciation on new equipment with use of the first-year Section 179 equipment depreciation deduction.
  • Offering peace of mind for small-business farmers by providing outsourced accounting, payroll, and advisory services that make tax planning and return preparation seamless.

With over 20 years experience in accounting and tax, Charlene Vaughn remains passionate about her profession and the personal relationships she’s developed. Born and raised in Colusa County, California, Charlene comes from a family of farmers who love what they do. She shares their work ethic and down-to-earth nature. She loves serving like-minded agriculture producers by offering close, personal attention and an open-door policy. This approach allows Charlene to support each businesses’ growth and profitability and minimize tax liabilities to the fullest extent possible.
