Whether on an individual or corporate level, our tax planning expertise is invaluable and saves our clients, thousands, and even tens of thousands of tax dollars. Each situation is unique, however, the end result is the same; and it is that of saving tax dollars that would have otherwise been paid unnecessarily. The tax code is extremely complex and the opportunities for saving real tax dollars abound. We serve as that conduit to our clients.
Our client base expands beyond the borders of our State and into every State with a tax law. We have the knowledge, capability, and wherewithal to prepare individual and corporate income tax returns for every State, City or Municipality that may impose an income tax on their residents. We also prepare part-year resident as well as non resident income tax returns.
All of the tax returns that we prepare are filed electronically, (unless they do not qualify for electronic filing) at no additional cost to our clients. Our system transmits the tax returns directly into the IRS's system eliminating any re-keying errors. Where refunds are expected we set those up for direct deposit. Refunds are expedited as a result of electronic filing and direct deposit. Our clients have become accustomed to receiving their refunds in an expedient manner.
Tax issues related to divorce are often overlooked or taken for granted by one or both parties. Without proper representation and professional oversight, as it relates to tax implications in a divorce, many times one of the parties will be more adversely affected to the tune of thousands, if not, tens of thousands of dollars. Our firm has extensive experience with divorce cases, in not just assisting the divorce attorney in drafting the language in the divorce decree, but in the analysis and calculations of the raw numbers. Too many times it’s not just the numbers, but what’s behind those numbers and how they will influence the tax implications in the current as well as future tax years. Nothing is more critical than having a team who understands these issues and reach out beyond what appears at face value. Our critical thinking process and professional expertise in this arena has been imperative in protecting our clients from undue tax burdens to which they would have otherwise been subject with no relief.

The importance of a company's ability to generate accurate financial reports that will assist its owners to make wise business decisions cannot be over emphasized. Cash flow reports and reports of revenue and expenses are the lifeline of the viability of the company and it is essential these are generated on a regular basis with accuracy. It is also imperative that business income tax returns, whether partnerships or corporations, are prepared to conform to the Company's Financials. As a result, most, if not all companies are required to make year-end adjustments. We prepare these year-end adjustments, whether these are corrections, reclassifications, or calculations for depreciation and amortization and generate a year-end Compilation report consisting of financial statements and financial position which match the income tax returns which are ultimately filed with the federal and state governments.
Before a new business venture is created, the decision as to the type of entity under which to operate is first and foremost. It is imperative the best choice of entity is selected as this will have a significant impact on the operations of the business as well as the tax implications. We take our time to educate our clients about the different types of entities - whether it is a Sole Proprietorship, an LLC, a Partnership, an S Corp, or a C Corporation - and to evaluate how these will impact them.
We are excited to say that all of our clients are fully automated, whether through us and our training or in their own offices. We are big believers in using technology to reduce costs and increase efficiencies. As technology evolves and improves, we are in the forefront to capitalize on its benefits.
