The Lompoc Vision

“Good News You Can Use.”



id you know that CAREGIVERS are considered

Household Employees by the State of California

and most recently the State has implemented a

NEW set of regulations regarding PAYROLL for them?

If you have Caregivers and are unaware of these rules

and how to pay them, you may be breaking the law and

can incur penalties and fines!

Let me help you!


Gloria Mantooth,

GAP Bookkeeping, Payroll & Taxes

I graduated in from Cal State University, Sacramento

in 1997 with a degree in Business Administration &Ac-

countancy. I always knew I wanted to use my educa-

tion, talents and skills in the service of helping people in

need. After graduation, I worked as a senior accountant

in the non-profit sector in Sacramento starting with the

California Optometric Association where I was employed for six years. After leaving COA, I

put more time into my company GAP Bookkeeping and Taxes and foster care.

I had taken in a foster child with special needs. From there, I went to work for the Sac-

ramento Metro Chamber of Commerce pretty much doing the same functions and using the

same accounting software as I did with the COA. I also added payroll and cash flow analysis

to my duties. In January 2007, I moved to Hawaii and started working for Richard Scott, a

real estate developer who owned several rental properties, a budget hotel and later a restau-

rant. I worked for Rick as a full-charge bookkeeper running the office and managing all the

administrative duties.

While I lived in Kauai, I started my own non-profit called The African Heritage Cultural

Center of Kauai. We organized and participated in several community based activities with

women, children, theater, music, and education. Upon returning to Lompoc to help care for

my aging mother and father, I took a part-time job with Mr. Joseph Perry and Tax on Wheels.

I worked with Mr. Perry on payroll and individual tax returns for a brief time before going to

work for Walpole & Co, LLP, a CPA firm based in Goleta California. I worked for Walpole

as a full charge bookkeeper and payroll specialist.

While there, I took on the payroll services for most of the clients that had caregivers. The

state refers to them as household employees. I learned and implemented the new labor laws

and tax implications for this class of worker and became the go to staff person for these

clients. I was employed at Walpole for the last 5 years ending in 2019 and am now working

from home. I use Quickbooks Online and Desktop, and other Intuit Software in my practice

and am ready to help you be successful in your home and business accounting needs. Call me

today, let’s get your year started off right!
