ANTS was founded by Richard W Pinkerman in 2008. Rick’s background was previously in the payroll service bureau industry. He developed his first tax issue tracking system in 2000 while working at Computer Payroll Company (CPC). That system tracked the basic information on each tax notice and ensured the company did not misplace any of the sensitive information or miss any important due dates or client follow up dates. CPC was receiving a high volume of tax notices per month on behalf of their clients during that time due to converting to a new payroll platform.
CPC sold to a large public accounting firm in 2007, the new organization decided not to use the tax tracking system Rick designed and instead hired a few staff members to replace the system. At that point Rick knew there was an opportunity to create and offer an advanced tax notice management system for Payroll Companies, CPA’s and Large Employers to use. Rick resigned and started ANTS in April 2008.
The name ANTS (Agency Notice Tracking System) reflects the role the system plays for tax professionals, managing all notices from any taxing jurisdiction (Federal, State, Local and or City).
Today we are proud to say we have some of the largest and smallest companies in the nation that use ANTS on a daily basis. Since 2008 we have used our clients input and our tax experts and design team as tools to make the systems what it is today. From Payroll, Corporate or Individual to Sales and Use to Agency Compliance and ACA Notice types, ANTS manages them all.
ANTS is privately owned and does not have any outstanding debt. We are dedicated to creating a better system based off the input from our clients and the insight we offer. ANTS does not have any shareholders or investment fund / private capital pushing us to sell our company for a quick gain or gauge our clients for higher profit. We are here for our clients and and hope you try ANTS out and become a happy client as well.
