Most accountants do a fine job recording history – the history you give them! They compile monthly, quarterly, and annual books and records. At tax time: they put the “right” numbers in the right boxes on the right forms, and file them by the right deadlines. But then they call it a day.

It doesn’t matter how good your current accountant is with a stack of receipts on April 15. If you haven’t planned right, by April 15 it’s just too late.

Have you organized your business right? Do you have the right benefit plans for yourself and your employees? Do you have the right retirement plan to prepare for your future. Are you taking advantage of all the legitimate deductions, credits, loopholes, and strategies the tax code offers?

At tax time, your books tell your accountant how much tax you owe. You scramble for more receipts and more deductions. But by tax time, it’s usually too late to do anything more. Is that all you really want?
