Estate planning on your own can be complicated and costly. And the list is endless... state taxes, bureaucracy, probate courts, unfair appraisals, health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRA's, 401K's, annuities, burial or cremation costs, and intent regarding death-postponing treatment to name a few. Not knowing your legal and financial rights often ends up costing you more in the end.

Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Could an heir be too young to inherit? Should the inheritance be given at a certain age? Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules, delays, and costs?

Planning what happens to your estate when you're gone can seem frustrating and intimidating without qualified help.

You may feel that you're too young to care about estate planning. Or, perhaps the reminder of death makes you uncomfortable. You might be tempted to put the whole thing off, assuming that it will just take care of itself. In all cases, estate planning ends up saving your family lots of time, heartache and money.

Most commonly looks like, "can I deduct my home, can I pay my children, should I buy equipment, should I track mileage, etc." This is a service that is sometimes addressed by phone calls to the office and/or emails. Often times it's with an associate or staff member in our office. It can also be something addressed and finalized in an annual office meeting. Different strokes for different folks, but we are capturing what "most" business clients are availing themselves of in this area.
Includes Federal and State vouchers based on safe harbor provisions of estimated tax payments. It uses prior year data to help avoid interest and penalties. It is worked on during your 2018 tax prep meetings.
Common in our practice. Many of our business client owners want us to run projections, using very detailed versions of what they think their personal return will look like, in it's entirety. Most commonly done in our office, with a tax manager or myself.
Most commonly looks like a before and after dog and pony show that illustrates the benefits of making retirement contributions and more importantly, structuring a plan for funding the contribution over a more manageable time frame.
The corporate fee includes all applicable schedules including partner K-1s.
We include one owner tax prep and for any additional owners we would offer a bundled fee of 75% of full price.
Our Valued Price Agreements allows our clients to lock in monthly, quarterly or annual billings that even out cash flow.
It is not a popular service within our firm because of a number of online tools but we do offer it at $75 per filing period (monthly, quarterly etc.). We have empowered our clients to take this role on themselves but we are happy to address in our annual office meeting.
We took time to review our previous billing methods, and to better serve our corporate level clients, have embraced a method that allows us to fix our annual fees. That method is based on the value of those services and the costs we incur, providing them.
Individual returns start at $550 and includes Schedule A, B 2441(Child Care Expenses) and one state return. Any additional schedules range from $50 - $100.
