The corporate tax return is quickly becoming the focal point for a wide variety of business issues - and opportunities.

Our process begins with gathering the important facts, background information, concerns and issues through comprehensive questionnaires and face-to-face interviews.

Following the discovery phase, we will gather source documents to prepare a draft of your tax return. This often reveals additional options for favorable tax treatment.

After reviewing the draft with you, we finalize all the required paperwork, submit returns to the appropriate authorities, prepare estimated tax payments or other documents for the coming year and retain all information, both physically and electronically, for future use.

Our goal is to make the entire process as painless and efficient as we can.
