Tax Planning and Advisory Services
We provide tax planning and advisory services to assist our clients in structuring transactions, from business start-ups to ownership changes (whether to the next generation or the next owner) to purchases of equipment and everything in between. Making a big financial decision and you would like to get a second opinion? Give us a call, we can help.
Representation before Taxing Authorities
Our staff of certified public accountants will represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service and Maine Revenue Services in the event of an audit or other correspondence. We work with our clients and the authorities to quickly and efficiently resolve these inquiries to minimize the disruption to our clients.
Staff Experience and Qualifications
We have decades of experience in all aspects of tax preparation and advisory services. Our staff receives ongoing education to ensure that they have the breadth and depth of knowledge to ensure compliance with the ever-changing Internal Revenue Code. We work for our clients by sorting through all of the changes that the federal and state governments make to the tax codes to ferret out the parts that affect our clients. We communicate all of this to our clients to ensure that they are in compliance with the law, while still taking advantage of all tax saving opportunities. We also currently subscribe to several different tax research services so we are able to provide solid advice on complex tax matters.
