Tax planning & return preparation for the following:



Homeowner & Property Owner Associations

Estates, Trusts & Gifts: What seemed like a simple thing to begin with can suddenly get  very confusing and complicated. Rest assured, we have been there before. Whether it’s Estate Tax, Estate Inventory, or filling out the Form 1041 we can help step by step.

Non-Profit Organizations: We can help you file your Form 990. This works smoothly if you are required to have an annual audit and we have done that. Some non-profits are required to take additional steps if they have been involved in lobbying efforts. We are quite experienced in helping these organizations.

New Company Setup:  How? When? Which form? Where do I send it? How much? We can answer those questions and lead you through this confusing process at this exciting time. You will know that it was done, and done correctly.

Tax NoticesDo you have a year (or more) of unfiled returns and now you’ve gotten a letter from the IRS? There’s no need to be embarrassed. Give us a call to see how we might be able to assist you.

Tax Audits: Well over 1 million audits are conducted by the IRS each year. While statistically, the likelihood may be small, when it happens to YOU, it can be an intimidating process. We have successfully been through this process many times.

Tax Planning: The goal of tax planning is to arrange your financial affairs so as to minimize your taxes. There are three basic ways to reduce your taxes, and each basic method might have several variations. You can reduce your income, increase your deductions, and take advantage of tax credits.
Our firm helps individuals and businesses reduce their tax liability by analyzing the information they provide. Using this information we determine if they can take advantage of any tax credits or additional expenses the client may think are nondeductible.
