Whether it's personal income taxes, business employment or income taxes, or state tax situations, we provide complete representation services before the IRS as well as state and local taxing authorities. We are also experienced in negotiating Offers in Compromise with the IRS.  Don't believe the too-good-to-be-true "pennies on the dollar" ads from the many TV tax companies; talk with us and get a true evaluation of your case.  While it may be initially uncomfortable to come in and discuss your situation, we've had lots of experience in these situations and clients leave feeling like a load has just been lifted off their shoulders.

Tax Planning                                            Our firm continuously monitors federal, state, and local tax law changes to allow its clients to minimize current and future tax liabilities. If necessary, we can implement tailor-made due-date tax compliance monitoring systems to prevent costly interest and penalty assessments attributable to late filing. Of course, we offer full tax preparation and filing services.
