“Your return has been selected for examination…” That’s one sentence that no one – individual or business owner – wants to read. What it says is ‘you’re being audited.’ But what it means is ‘the battle is just getting started.’
You might be tempted to resolve the issue on your own. Maybe you called the number on the notice, and the auditor ‘seemed to be very nice on the phone.’ Don’t be fooled – their job is to collect taxes, not to be your friend. You need someone who’s been there before and knows what the auditor is doing. That’s where we come in. With over 20 years of tax experience, we can help you get through the audit, and keep more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
What if you did ‘go it alone,’ and now owe more in taxes, penalties and interest than you can pay – or even find yourself facing prison time? We can help you find the best option for your situation and vigorously defend you against criminal charges.
Are you thinking about starting a new business? Have a business but need some guidance? Need to know how to close your business properly?
No matter where you are in your business’ life, we can be your support. From advice on whether and how to incorporate, drafting documents, evaluating & negotiating agreements with suppliers and staff, dealing with competitors – including either bringing or defending litigation – to when the time comes to sell, transfer ownership to family or close the doors, we’ll help you through the transition from beginning to end. We’ll share our experience – working for and with companies large and small – to help you avoid costly mistakes and find the best solution for you.
No one likes to think of their own mortality. But for many, even less agreeable is the thought that state officials will decide what to do with your assets after you’re gone.
We can work with you to develop an estate plan that you’re comfortable with – or review an old plan to make sure it still fits your needs – and help you keep it up-to-date and relevant going forward.
And don’t think estate planning is a luxury only for the wealthy. Estate plans can be tailored to most budgets or asset levels. It gives you a voice after you’re gone and in fact can be one of the most important things you do for your loved ones.
