SHPA, LLC works to enhance the financial position of the clients we represent. Addressing tax issues and opportunities involves three key areas: Financial Planning, Tax Return Preparation and IRS Problem Resolution.
Strategic planning is as important to managing tax liability as it is to any other part of a business, family or personal financial situation. Having the right tax strategies in place creates a number of positive financial impacts, but without the right plan, the risks are high. Here are some of the benefits a plan to minimize tax liability can help provide:
- Grow and preserve assets
- Maximize income by minimizing taxes
- Retain more family assets
- Increase the opportunity to give more by avoiding unnecessary taxes
- Grow investments and wealth
- Protect retirement distributions and improve your retirement lifestyle
Start by talking to one of our tax professionals and creating the plan that realizes these benefits. After listening to the details of your situation, we will apply strategies that best protect your income and assets. Some of the options we might explore are:
- Dividing income among family members or legal entities in order to get more of the income taxed in lower bracket.
- Address opportunities to accelerate or defer income and expenses to maximize after-tax income.
- Deferring tax liabilities through certain investment choices such as retirement plan contributions and other similar plans.
Preparing tax returns without the guidance of a professional can raise confusing questions, create frustration and may cost you more that you realize. Even the most sophisticated software can’t replace the insights and advice of our professional tax team. We provide:
- Return preparation to assure compliance with tax law and regulations.
- Electronic filing of your return.
- Professional guidance to show you potential deductions that limit your tax liability for next year
IRS PROBLEM RESOLUTION
Tax problems with the IRS (or state taxing authorities) can be intimidating. Tax problems can arise from unfiled tax returns, errors and omissions in previously filed returns, audit situations, unpaid taxes, incorrect or incomplete responses to IRS notices, etc. Ignoring correspondence from the IRS or state taxing authorities is never a good idea. Being proactive when a tax problem arises is always the preferred course of action.
