ACCOUNTING

We prepare financial statement compilations, reviews and audits for businesses and individuals. We also compile forecasted financial statements. Financial statements aid in the achieving of strategic initiatives such as business expansions, mergers, sales and acquisitions. Professionally prepared financial statements are also essential when obtaining financing, dealing with creditors and reporting to investors.

TAX COMPLIANCE

We prepare income tax and information returns for the Internal Revenue Service, state and local taxing agencies. We also coordinate through affiliations with accountants and tax attorneys to ensure correct international filings. In today’s global economy, it is very difficult to track the rules and reporting requirements that govern investments. The increasing number of regulations and penalties can make the lack of tax compliance very costly.
In the event that a tax return is chosen to be audited by the Internal Revenue Service, state or local taxing authority, we have knowledgeable experts experienced in dealing with such audits and minimizing any additional tax imposed.
Even if an audit outcome is unfavorable, we are familiar with the appeals process and have successfully been able to reverse the findings on appeal. We also work with tax attorneys and can represent clients before Tax Court, if necessary, and have experience in settling cases before trial.
