Tax Advisory and Tax Preparation Services

In a 1935 United Stated Federal Court of Appeals decision, Justice Learned Hand said: “Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as possible.”  We embrace that statement, which holds as true today as it did in 1935.

With that in mind, we provide comprehensive tax planning and consulting services, helping our clients navigate through the multitude of tax issues in the ever changing sea of tax changes and complexities, guiding our clients to avoid tax pitfall and tax traps. We analyze present and future circumstances and offer our clients ideas and choices to minimize and reduce taxes by taking full advantage of the array of tax laws, regulations, options and credits available to taxpayers.

Every year, we handle a wide range of tax controversies - delinquent filings, penalty notices, tax liens and levies, etc. Our senior staff handles tax audits, amended returns, appeals, tax debt settlement negotiations, Offers In Compromise, tax debt installment payment plan negotiations, and more.

In the professional world of accounting, Certified Public Accountants can issue financial statements in one of the following three ways: “Audit,” “Review” and “Compilation.” Although we chose several years ago not to perform audits, we do provide Review and Compilation services which are required by many banks, lenders, investors, governmental licensing agencies, and others.
