Tax Preparation Services

Every year when tax season comes, many people dread having to buy accounting or tax software or muddle through online tax filing. We offer many different tax services. The tax laws change regularly and have become so complicated that if you are doing your own income tax return preparation, you are probably paying more in taxes than you need to.

Filing tax forms have become so confusing that most taxpayers prefer to have a professional tax preparer do it for them. It’s easy to overlook deductions and credits you may be entitled to, and tax preparation software programs alone are still no match for an experienced tax professional.

Business income tax

On the business income tax side, we offer a full menu of services at one location. Many clients engage us to handle their bookkeeping, payroll and tax needs. This provides us with the best opportunity to advise and offer tax planning strategies for the business owner’s business and personal taxes. It also helps with the other important aspect of tax preparation – compliance.

Compliance is making sure that your tax returns, personal, business, payroll, are all filed accurately and timely. The best way to reduce or eliminate tax issues is to stay in compliance with all Federal and State tax laws and requirements. This may mean that you need to pay estimated tax payments every month or quarter. We can help ensure that your payroll tax withholding amount is adjusted correctly, so you’re not lending money to the IRS.

For those who won’t get a federal refund but need to pay additional tax, taxes can be paid with a personal check or credit card. We can work out a tax debt resolution program with the IRS for those who may have tax debts.
