We employ a planning-oriented approach in preparing tax returns. This includes looking for opportunities to reduce taxes, both currently and in the future. Services extend beyond the usual to include evaluation of our client’s specific needs and desires. Prior year returns and expected results are compared to the actual returns in order to uncover potential additional deductions or tax savings. All returns are reviewed by a second professional to ensure the same high quality for each product. Clients can expect personal, individualized attention, and quality service. We believe individualized planning can creatively evaluate the client’s big picture and encourages the application of sound business judgment.

When it comes to individual taxes, change provides opportunity. We keep on top of these changes to provide you with the best advice and strategies, especially through planning opportunities.

Estate and Trust Tax Services
If you have not considered what will happen to your hard-earned assets as you age and eventually pass on, you should. Without an estate plan, the wealth you worked your entire life to build will be distributed according to state law and not according to your wishes. Estate planning is crucial if you want to minimize taxes and distribute your preferred beneficiaries as much as possible.
We will work with you and your estate attorney to design an estate plan customized to your particular needs by utilizing various planning vehicles such as family limited partnerships, trusts, and charitable entities. Our team can assist you by performing the following:
- Review wills and trust instruments.
- Estimate estate taxes and strategize alternatives that may provide tax savings.
- Review business issues, including valuation and the transfer and/or disposition of business interests.
- Prepare estate, gift, and fiduciary tax returns.

Reviews are usually performed to satisfy third parties that want to be assured the financial statements are not materially misstated. They provide a lesser degree of assurance to financial statement users than an audit. Also, unlike an audit, there is no expression of an opinion on the financial statements, testing of controls, or financial data. Reviews essentially consist of inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial data.
Compilations provide the lowest level of assurance of the financial statements services. They are often required by outside third parties as well as internally by companies.
In a compilation, we assist management in presenting their financial information as financial statements in the proper form. Compilations also require us to understand the client’s industry and obtain specific knowledge about the client. Additionally, we read the financial statements and ensure they are free from obvious material errors. They provide no expression of an opinion on the financial statements.
