We provide extensive tax planning to help you maximize tax benefits and minimize liabilities.

When a client says that they want to pay the lowest amount of tax possible. We ask “do you want to pay the lowest amount of tax this year or over the course of your business?”  We ask questions and obtain an understanding of your business.  What are your business goals?  What is your business plan?  We monitor the changes in the tax laws.  We ask questions and monitor your business throughout the year so that we can provide proactive tax planning.

We can also help by preparing responses to notices from the taxing authorities and defending audits.  Audits don’t happen often, but when they do is best to have a competent representative who understands the tax law and understands how your return was prepared.
