Tax Planning & Preparation

Business Tax Experts Working for You

We know one of your top priorities is paying less in taxes. This is best achieved through comprehensive tax planning. Whether you’re an individual or corporation, whether you require Form 1065 or Form 1120 or Form 1120S, we can accommodate your needs. We work with you throughout the year to develop a customized plan with tax-saving strategies that are tailored to your unique situation.

Filing business taxes

Our one-on-one tax return preparation service offers you peace of mind—knowing that your tax return is in capable hands. We are diligent about remaining up-to-date on the changing tax laws and will examine all of the tax-saving opportunities available to you. We are committed to minimizing your tax liabilities and maximizing your future opportunities—while remaining in full compliance with IRS statutes. 

IRS Representation

We also provide expert IRS representation services because we understand that few things evoke more fear than receiving a notice from the IRS. We act as your representative in front of state and federal agencies to help resolve your issue in a timely manner with as little stress as possible. Professional representation can be vital during an audit, and our experience with tax authorities enables us to guide you through your situation with ease and expertise.

Business Tax Preparation

Tax preparation doesn’t come around just once a year. Quarterly payment filings
and estimated quarterlies are areas we can assist you and your bookkeeping
staff. We can work to streamline your book keeping operations so you have
detailed notes, digitized receipts which will save you time and headaches at the
end of the fiscal year. We can work to get you set up with electronic statements
and reconciling regularly to keep your finance in tip top shape. Business tax
preparation and business tax returns do not have to be scary. They can be

Small Business Taxes

As your business grows, your tax structures and liabilities change and evolve.
We can guide you through the pitfalls and challenges that will keep your business
in compliance as well as take advantages of tax saving strategies. We will deal with issues like:

Filing small business taxes

  • Casualty / loss business transactions
  • In-home offices for the small business
  • Sub-contractors and Form 1099-MISC, 1096 forms or Schedule K-1 forms
  • Interest income declarations
  • Multi-state, multi-location tax filings

Partnership Return and Filing 1065 Form

Form 1065 is the US Return of Partnership Income. Form 1065 is used by partnerships and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) to report federal income taxes.

Whether your partnership is a general partnership, a limited partnership or an
LLC (limited liability partnership), we can assist with filing Form1065, any
1099 subcontractor forms as well as the Schedule K-1 forms. We will walk you
through any ordinary business expenses and well as the more esoteric areas of
tax prep like:

  • royalties and dividends 
  • capital gains 
  • foreign transactions
  • guaranteed payments that came about during your business cycles.

We can develop a system to assist you with detailing your business assets and
liabilities so you can file your Schedule L, M-2 or M-3 paperwork and hit the
annual deadlines of March 15. If you can’t make that deadline, we will be happy
to file your 6-month extension so IRS penalties will be negated.

Corporate Tax return and Filing 1120 and 1120S Forms

C corporations (and LLCs filing as corporations) use Form 1120 to file their income taxes.

S corporations use Form 1120S to file their income taxes.

We are experts in 1120 and 1120S filings of corporate tax returns but our due
diligence does not stop there. There have been many recent changes in the
corporate tax codes that require more attention to your corporate tax preparation.
These changes can work favorably for your company’s growth when making your
company tax returns. Let us walk you through the areas of charitable
contributions, Depreciation (Form 4562), depletion, import/export taxes and tariffs
along with officer compensation and executive packages including stock options.
We can also advise strategically on buy-out options, mergers and acquisitions.
We handle all facets of the corporate affairs from starts up to winding downs.
