Tax Preparation

Preparing your own tax return can be confusing, frustrating, and time-consuming. Additionally, tax laws are complicated and difficult to understand, meaning that deductions and credits can be left unused and money left on the table.

Should you owe money to the IRS, we will work with you to identify problem areas in payroll withholding or potential deductions for the coming year. We ensure that you file confidently, accurately and, most importantly, that you to pay no more than you actually owe.

Tax Planning

While paying taxes is necessary, we want to ensure that you maximize your after-tax income. The best way to do so is to plan ahead, to look at your anticipated income for the year and legally reduce your tax liability with tax saving strategies.

We work with businesses and individuals to create custom plans to reduce the amount of taxes owed to the lowest possible number. We do this by looking at tax credits, deductions, and savings plans throughout the year, not just at the end of it. Whether it’s deferring income, reducing taxes on gifts and investments, or utilizing retirement plans to reduce taxes, we want you to hold on to as much of your income as possible.
