Tax Planning

Traditionally, tax preparers sit with their clients once a year and advise them how much their liability will be and how to make estimated payments. They call this process tax planning, we believe this should be called tax managing.
We believe tax planning involves sitting with clients 2-3 times per year, estimating income projections, considering future growth and creating a plan that will minimize taxes, create more deductions and increase liquidity for business purposes rather than be used to purchase more equipment.

Tax Credits

A tax credit is money available that any taxpayer can subtract from taxes owed to their government. While tax deductions and exemptions reduces the amount of taxable income, tax credits reduce the actual amount of tax owed.

Tax credits are more favorable than tax deductions or exemptions because they actually reduce the tax due, not just the amount of taxable income.

Different states may grant a tax credit to encourage certain activities such as replacing older appliances with more energy-efficient ones. For business owners we find the R&D (research and development) Tax credit is often missed by other tax and accounting agencies. This could mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in refund that’s left with the IRS. We review all client’s file to make sure these huge refunds are never missed.
