Tax Preparation

I prepare all types of Federal income, estate, gift, and trust tax returns and can prepare tax returns for any state and many political subdivisions (counties and cities) in the country. Returns are filed by mail, courier service, or electronically with the Internal Revenue Service and/or state taxing authorities.

Tax Planning

This involves advising clients regarding the tax consequences of their contemplated financial decisions, including: timing income and deductions; making charitable contributions; utilizing net operating losses, capital losses, or passive activity losses; establishing and maintaining employee fringe benefit plans; taking retirement plan distributions and bankruptcy. Helping clients split income among family members through use of family partnerships: employment arrangements, gifts, trusts, installment sales, etc are all important aspects.  Advising clients on the issues related to personal decisions such as marriage or divorce (property settlements, retirement plan divisions, alimony and child support, are also covered. I am in a position to identify key tax planning opportunities that minimize both your current and future tax liabilities, and provide my clients with the taxation expertise and knowledge that they deserve throughout the year.

Tax Representation

Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), like attorneys, are authorized to practice before the Internal Revenue Service representing individuals and agents in regard to all matters and divisions of the Internal Revenue Service and the U. S. Department of Treasury. I accept representation assignments from both existing clients and accept new clients whose tax returns are being challenged or audited by the IRS. Additionally we participate in;

The IRS Offers and Compromise Program offers an opportunity for a tax payer to settle with the government for an amount less than the amount the government is attempting to collect. There must be mitigating circumstances present and forward that will substantially hinder or prevent the taxpayer from satisfying the tax debt. Assistance from a CPA may make the difference in the success of such an endeavor, thus I represent clients seeking to compromise on tax debts due the government.

IRS Levies and Garnishment are extra ordinary tactics which the IRS employs when it concludes that its routine collection methods have been unsuccessful and seizure of taxpayer?s assets is the most expedient method to ensure the outstanding tax obligation will be collected. These tactics often are very disruptive and can be very burdensome to the taxpayer. Call me if I can help forge a solution that will provide relief for the taxpayer and effective tax administration for the Internal Revenue Service.
