Tax Returns

Our staff of Certified Public Accountants, who hold Masters degrees in Taxation, work diligently to ensure compliance while minimizing taxes. We make ourselves available throughout the year in order to plan and to be proactive whenever a non-routine business transaction takes place.

Corporate tax returns

If you are building a new corporation, we can assist you in determining whether subchapter S is the correct entity choice and guide you with the compliance and timing of the election. Regular C corporations are ideal for some companies but could be disastrous for other companies - we will assist you in working out where your business fits and how to keep up with the correct filing procedures.

LLC and Partnership tax returns

We have years of experience working with LLC and partnership tax returns. Businesses and ventures with more than one owner will choose LLC as their entity formation over any of the other entity options. There are also many reasons a sole proprietor will also choose LLC as their business avatar.

Individual tax returns

We have specialized in taxation for high-net worth individuals for over 25 years. Multi-State and International tax optimization is second nature to us. This experience allows us to work with individuals with basic tax return needs and expand our assistance as their careers grow and change.

IRS representation

Receiving a notice from the IRS causes a tremendous amount of anxiety. We will get to the root of the cause and provide expertly guided council and correspondence to resolve the matter in an efficient manner. The majority of notices our clients receive are routine and resolved without tax impact to their wallet. In the rare case of audit, our certified public accounting staff will buffer, and if you choose, eliminate interactions with the IRS agent. We will handle every detail from start to finish.

Offers in compromise

If you are in the unfortunate position of owing a daunting amount of taxes from prior years, this may be a viable option to greatly reduce the total amount payable to the IRS. We will help you compile the documentation and handle the submission and correspondence required for a successful offer in compromise.

Private foundation tax returns

An integral part of a successful career is building a lasting legacy not only for family but for community. For our actively philanthropic clientele, the family foundation is the perfect choice for charitable giving. Each of our staff members are experienced with compliance and consulting at the federal and multi-state level.

Tax planning and projections

Many self-employed and high net-worth individuals are subject to estimated tax payments. Though proper planning and projecting, we can help you determine if your quarterly estimates require adjustment. Also, proactive quarterly tax planning analysis and discussions can enhance the dashboard of decision making tools needed throughout the year.

Central Withholding Agreements

A CWA is an agreement entered into by the non-resident alien (NRA) athlete or entertainer, a designated withholding agent and an authorized representative of the Internal Revenue Service. The CWA is not effective unless all parties have signed the agreement. In the agreement you agree to file Form 1040 NR for the year in which the CWA covers independent personal services. If the tour covers a period that spans additional calendar years, more than one CWA may be required. We can assist you with completion of this important document.
