Business Tax Consulting and Compliance

Tax Compliance
One of our greatest strengths is that we understand the complexities of taxation. Our thorough knowledge of tax law enables us to address not only day-to-day but also complex tax issues in an efficient manner. Our Tax Compliance services focus on income and estate tax return preparation. We also assist our clients with local, property, excise, sales and other industry-specific taxes.

Tax Planning & Consulting
We view Tax Planning and Tax Compliance as very different services. While both require a strong knowledge of current and pending tax law, proper planning enables a taxpayer to obtain the best long-term results. We pride ourselves on finding creative and unique tax planning opportunities that result in minimized tax obligations. Our active interest in ongoing operational and industry issues enables us to tailor tax strategies to each client’s specific situation.
