Compliance issues are the foundation of most everything else we do. We can not only make sure your taxes are filed on time and accurately, but help with making proper elections and cutting through the quagmire that tax law can appear to be.
Tax planning lets you control, to the greatest extent possible within the law and your unique financial position, what to expect when tax time rolls around.

We represent businesses and individuals in disputes with the IRS and various state or local taxing authorities. These disputes may include tax notices, tax examinations, or the appeal positions taken by the government.
As your representative, we will ensure that the IRS and other taxing authorities follow the rules and proper procedures when dealing with you. We will also help guard your rights as a taxpayer.
Tax examinations and notices can be difficult and time consuming, requiring gathering of information, coordination and due diligence to guarantee your rights are protected and preserved. We will review the issues, assist you all the way through the process and take the action that is appropriate for your situation.Representation Before Taxing Authorities
If you have constructed, bought, expanded or remodeled real estate, we can help you increase your cash flow by reducing your current taxable income. A cost segregation study is a strategic analysis that allows companies to accelerate their depreciation-related tax deductions. Generally, real estate loses its value, for tax purposes, over either 27 or 39 years; however, equipment and land improvements are depreciated over 5 to 15 years, meaning you can receive tax deductions sooner. A cost segregation study identifies equipment and equipment-related costs and land improvements that are depreciated over this shorter time period. You can enjoy tax deductions right now that you would otherwise have to wait years to receive.
We perform cost segregation studies for all types of industries, from apartment buildings and hotels to manufacturing facilities. Our sole focus is on maximizing the legitimate benefits available to you.
