If you’re looking for a firm that will focus on your individual needs, and always treat you like a client who matters, look no further. Our firm is large enough to offer a full range of professional services, but small enough to give you the individual attention that you deserve.
We will thoroughly and conscientiously study your personal situation, and tailor our advice to your specific needs.
LLC and SCorp Entity Planning
The business entity—LLP, LLC, sole proprietorship, partnership, S corporations, etc.— that you select for your business has enormous financial and tax implications. It is important that you make the right decision. We can explain each choice and its implications. As your business grows and changes, the type of business entity you choose may need to change also.
Buying or Selling a Business
Few business decisions are more important, complex and potentially business altering than a buy or sell decision. When you are ready to sell your business, we can provide support at every step, including valuing the business, vetting potential buyers, and supporting due diligence. If a buying opportunity presents itself, we can help by providing valuation services, developing negotiation and financing strategies, and managing the due diligence process.
Estate, Trust, & Probate Tax Preparation
Estate, Trust, and Probate taxes can be complex. By taking proactive steps today, you can ease the way for your heirs during a very difficult time. We can work with you to minimize the taxes due and ensure the smooth transition of assets from the estate to the heirs. We are available to handle all estate, trust, and probate tax-related matters.
An IRS audit can be an intimidating and complex process. If you or your business face an IRS audit, we can bring to bear years of experience in dealing with tax matters and IRS audit procedures to ensure that you are properly represented when dealing with the IRS and other tax authorities.
