Income Tax

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government’s General Accounting Office last year, most taxpayers believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer. Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

The primary objective of our tax services group is to minimize a client’s overall tax burden whenever and wherever possible. In order to achieve this, our tax services are directed primarily toward constructive tax planning beginning early in the year and maintaining close contact with our clients throughout the year.

International Taxation

In modern society it is not unusual for medium or even small business to cross the border in their business operations and transactions. Entering new markets also means entering new taxing jurisdictions, with the potential for double taxation of the same items of income. Through carefully considered structuring decisions, adverse tax surprises can be kept to a minimum. We can also help foreign companies manage their U.S., state and local tax obligations.
