We don’t just calculate your taxes, we can lower them

Do you view taxes as a historical exercise to be addressed well after the year has closed, but spend most of the year worrying about them?

If so, we’d like to change that. We believe the most important tax deadline of the year is December 31, not April 15. When you wait until the last minute, there is only so much a CPA can do for you.

It’s essential to know where you stand before the end of the year in order to manage your tax liability. Our tax planning services eliminate any unpleasant surprises, providing a systematic analysis of various tax options to minimize your tax liability both now and in the future. That means you can sleep better at night.

We keep up with tax laws so you don’t have to

The increasing complexity of our tax laws makes it nearly impossible for most small businesses to confidently prepare their own returns. We commit substantial resources to research materials, compliance software, and planning tools, so we can provide our clients with regular updates on new and pending laws to keep them abreast of potential planning issues.

Case Study: Recovering $150,000 in Taxes — 2010

A specialized retailer was referred to us by a long-standing client. The retailer needed our help with negotiating a new store lease and financing terms.

Taxes were not a concern. The retailer had her personal and corporate taxes prepared each year by a reputable accounting firm. The returns were complete, accurate, and filed on time. However, no tax planning had been done. We discovered that the retailer had paid an extra $150,000 in taxes that could have been avoided with proper planning. The former firm was merely filling out tax forms in the crunch of tax season.

Even though our client paid too much in taxes each of the previous 10 years, she was happy to learn that we developed a plan to recover those excess payments over the following few years through proactive tax planning. In the end, she more than made up the difference.
