Products & Services

Estate & Gift Tax Planning

You can't take it with you, but failing to plan for your estate can mean that the government, rather than your heirs, may get the major portion of your hard-earned money.

Financial Planning & Investment Review

We can review your investment ideas with you and your investment advisor and make recommendations to maximize your after-tax return. While taxes should not drive your investment strategy, understanding how taxes affect your earnings will help you minimize taxes and maximize your return.

Tax Planning

We monitor the changes in the tax law that could affect you and recommend tax saving strategies. We will file all your tax returns and serve as your advocate in all tax matters.

Tax Return Preparation

Today's tax laws are so complicated that unless your financial affairs are extremely simple, chances are you will benefit from at least occasional help from a tax professional. It is too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled if you prepare only one return a year.

Financial Statements

We can prepare or supervise the preparation of your financial statements. Compiled or reviewed statements can be provided according to your needs. More importantly, we can help you use these statements, as well as other reports, to better manage your business and increase your profitability.

When you buy business or investment real property, such as an apartment building, you usually pay one lump sum for land, buildings, and other improvements. There’s no cost breakdown. You can’t depreciate land because it doesn’t wear out. So, as far as depreciation goes, land is useless.What you need is a way to take that lump sum and allocate it to land, buildings, improvements, and equipment.
