“Do you I want to keep more of your hard-earned money when filing your taxes?”
The primary goal of my office is to partnering with you by maximizing your business profit and creating a tax plan, specific to your situation, keeping your tax burden to the legal minimum.
Like a regular medical checkup, taking the opportunity to review your current tax plan is critical to your business and personal financial health. Most business owners don’t really have time to work on this issue. This is the reason why I have created a system to analyze your current situation and devise a personal strategy to help you keep more money in your business and reduce your tax burden. I have called this program “Profit Optimization Strategy.”
Given the fact that every year there is new Federal and State Tax Laws changes and specially in 2020 with the “Care Act” – COVID-19 Pandemic and the PPP Act for small businesses, it is mandatory to understand the new complexity of the COVID-19 Tax relief to ensure the maximum tax saving.
As it turns out, there are plenty of missed opportunities for claiming tax credits or deductions. This result in settling up for a smaller refund than the one you should get. Studies shows that on average about 18% of business or work expenses, 9.1 % of health Insurance or medical expenses and 8.5 % of Real Estate or Mortgage taxes deductions are missed. This is only the tip of the iceberg, there are others miscellaneous deductions and income deferral instruments you may benefit from.
With our POS (Profit Optimization Strategy) we guarantee to identify at least $ 1,000 or more in potential tax deductions or credits that were not used last year. By analyzing your last year filed tax return we guarantee we can identify missing deductions and will point them out to you in writing.
Our team of proactive professionals with extensive and diverse experience serves the accounting and tax needs of individuals and owners of small to mid-sized businesses. I believe that our professional and entrepreneurial experience, global background and business acumen match the key requirements of any project being offered.
