Tax and Compliance
Business Entity Selection
Careful consideration should be given when choosing an entity type (i.e. sole proprietor, partnership, LLC, corporation, S-Corporation). Tax issues as well as liability issues should be considered. How you choose to operate can assist in the success of a business. Matters regarding year-end selection, multiple state reporting, general liability, utilization of tax basis, and other issues are part of determining the new entity organization and taxation. Additionally, there are numerous forms that must be filled out if you are to legally operate a business. Our professional staff will assist you in avoiding penalties and unnecessary aggravation.

Estate, Gift and Trust Planning
The planning of one’s estate is still as important as ever. Effective estate planning facilitates the orderly transfer of assets to your beneficiaries, provides security for your surviving spouse and can reduce or eliminate the amount of tax due on the transfer of your business and other assets. For business owners, providing for business continuity and succession of ownership is essential. We can guide you through the complex process of getting your financial affairs in order. We have formed relationships with qualified attorneys to better benefit you in this planning process. We are also able to help you if you are the recipient of funds from another’s estate. We are able to help you structure your estate to meet your specific needs whether it is to provide financially for your heirs, fund your retirement or provide funds for yourself while you can enjoy them.
