Our Focus

Tax Services

Every financial decision you make, whether in your personal life or for your business, can have tax implications. We believe that providing effective tax services goes beyond simple tax return preparation; it takes comprehensive tax planning to help you assess and manage the impact your financial decisions have on your taxes and your larger financial picture.

Our tax professionals not only accurately prepare returns for all types of entities, but as your trusted advisor we can assess the tax implications of your financial decisions, formulate a tax strategy to minimize your liability, and proactively monitor significant changes to both tax law and to your finances, all to help you stay on track.

Individual Taxes

The core of our firm’s philosophy is that planning is the key to an individual’s overall financial health. We can help you to develop a solid, sensible plan that can help you not only with the current year’s taxes, but also your future expenses; such as, saving for your children’s educational expenses, funding your retirement, and protecting your assets and estate.

Business Taxes

We strive to minimize your tax liability to improve your profitability. Whether you are large or small, established or just starting up, we have the knowledge and experience to offer strategic tax planning and preparation services.

Estate, Gift, and Trust Tax Return Preparation

We provide expert preparation of complex Federal and State tax returns for estates, gifts, and trusts. In addition, we offer comprehensive and knowledgeable assistance with the tax implications of your estate plans, gifting strategies, and business succession plans.
