Individual Compliance

Perhaps you’ve been doing your own taxes with preparation software, but now things have grown just a little too complicated. Maybe you were granted stock options, or you’re considering buying or selling a home. Or you retired and you’re unsure about your tax liability in the event you take a distribution.

It’s okay. Life changes often, and tax law changes even more often.

If you have complex personal transactions, we will explore the tax impact together, so you can make the best decision for your situation. 

Real Estate Owners (Rental/Residence)

Are you buying, renting, exchanging, or selling residential real estate property? Let’s collaborate and run an analysis to determine the tax effects of your transaction.

Employees With Stock Options

Are you exercising stock options and don’t know whether to hold or sell? Let’s build a proforma return and set three scenarios to help decide how many options to exercise and what tax liabilities you can expect.

Employees

Do your paycheck withholdings match your money style? Let’s review your withholdings together to ensure that they meet your needs and financial lifestyle.

Tax Planning

Should you be pre-paying your taxes quarterly with estimates? Let’s perform some tax planning and weigh your options.

Retirees

What are the tax implications of a retirement rollover or distribution? Let’s discuss your current needs and determine whether will you have enough left after taxes to achieve your goals.
