Income Tax Planning and Preparation

Income tax planning and preparation form a winning combination for our successful individual and business clients. Whether you are an individual or a multi-tiered partnership, our experienced staff can develop tax strategies that take advantage of new tax laws and legislation. Tax planning is an essential element of the tax preparation process.

Our significant investment in computerized tax preparation and research software enables us to accurately and efficiently prepare returns for various types of entities including individuals, corporations, partnerships, LLCs/LLPs, and not-for-profit organizations.

Estate and Trust Taxes

Effective estate and gift planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse, and can reduce or eliminate the tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order.

State and Local Income Taxes

Businesses and individuals may be located or reside in one state and locality, but do business in or derive income from other states and localities under the concepts of state nexus and source income tax laws. We advise businesses and individuals on procedures to follow to ensure that state and local nexus issues are identified and applied in situations where multi-state and/or local jurisdiction tax compliance may exist.

Sales Tax

Businesses are often responsible for collecting and submitting sales taxes in many different vicinities. We can assist your company in the compilation of information and preparation of sales tax returns in an efficient and timely manner.

International Taxation

Our experience with the taxation of U.S residents working abroad and foreign citizens working in the U.S. has provided us with an extensive base of knowledge in the area of international taxation.

Representation Before IRS and Other Tax Authorities

During our years of experience dealing with many taxing authorities, we have achieved a level of competence that can ensure our clients they are being properly represented before the various federal and state tax agencies. We can advise and represent businesses and individuals on a variety of matters from basic tax notices and inquiries, to representation during audits, to the negotiation of settlements of tax liabilities through offers in compromise, deferred payment plans or other arrangements.
