For many of us, income taxes are the biggest single expense that we have in our lives, yet we don’t make an intentional effort to legally cut our tax bill.

What are the benefits of working with a tax professional?

Tax consultants keep up with tax laws at the local, state, and federal levels, something that you may find hard to do.

If you own a business, filing your taxes can be daunting, especially when you factor in things like sales taxes, which have to be returned several times annually. Trying to file your own taxes may save you money short-term, but will harm you long-term, especially as your business grows.

With a professional tax advisor, you’ll have a better understanding of your tax deductions and you will be given advice about making strategic investments that will help you avoid tax liabilities. An expert tax consultant will not only advise you on how to effectively save on taxes, but also improve your financial portfolio.

You’d be surprised at the number of people fined for making tax mistakes or penalized for not filing on time. With a tax consultant, you don’t have to go digging up all your files and double-check that everything is correct because they’ll do all that for you on time. This means you can place your focus on your business.

Generally, a small business is not required to have a certified public accountant, or CPA. A CPA would be needed if the small business must have its financial statements audited or reviewed to obtain a bank loan, apply for a grant, bid on a job, or some other unique requirement.

Charges for preparing quarterly and year-end business taxes vary depending on the complexity, size of the firm, and the kind of business. Fees for preparing monthly, quarterly, and annual payroll tax forms are usually included as part of a payroll service. Income taxes for a sole proprietorship with no employees are filed as part of the owner’s personal income taxes.

Roughly estimated, hourly rates run from $100-$400 for small and medium businesses. Generally, a fairly simple income tax return for a partnership, corporation, or sole proprietorship with few or no employees starts around $600-$1000 and can go up to $1,500-$4,500 or more depending on the complexity.

Real estate tax laws can be complicated and our tax advisors can help you understand the tax laws related to your properties. It’s important to stay on top of your taxes. Proper preparation can make things much easier when it comes time to file your taxes. We can help to simplify the depreciation estimation process for your real estate business to maximize legally allowed depreciation.   

We work with real estate developers, investors, and small business owners of virtually all types. This includes single-family, multifamily, and commercial investors of all sizes. We’ve worked with clients with just a handful of properties to clients with dozens of properties.

Small businesses, in general, are nearly ten times more likely to be audited than individuals who don’t own businesses.
