What does tax planning mean?
We can help plan for various life changes like a new baby, new home, new marriage, etc.
Buying a New Home – What happens to your taxes if you buy a new home? What if you take the down payment out of your IRA? Will you be penalized? We can help with proper tax planning for buying a new home.
Buying a New Car –If you purchase a new car, you qualify to write the sales tax off as a deduction!
College Planning – There are substantial tax credits for attending college. We can help to ensure you don’t miss out on these credits that the government offers you, your spouse, or children attending college or trade schools.
Death of a Spouse – We can help with all tax concerns for a deceased spouse. Many times the male dies first, leaving his wife with a large mess. Especially if for 50 years he did everything including the preparations. We can help put these concerns to rest (no pun intended).
Deaf, Handicapped, Mentally, or Physically Impaired – We know what deductions to look for to help you pay the least amount of taxes and if any equipment is deductable.
Divorce Tax Preparation Help – Getting a divorce? Need to know the tax implications to you and your spouse? Need to know what taxes you will pay on alimony? Need to know what happens when the spouse takes all or some of the children? We can use your current return to let you know what changes you may have to make for your next year’s tax situation. This can help take out the surprises of divorcing and your taxes!
Male Tax Situations – “If she works, how will my taxes be affected? If she doesn’t work, what will my taxes look like? Should I get married? Get divorced? Plan for a child? Take money out of my IRA? Should I buy a new home?” If you’re asking yourself these questions, come see us and let us help you answer them!
Female Tax Situations – We love females and we want to help! The tax implications of being female are sometimes stronger and more confusing than those of the males. On a limited income you may ask, “Can I afford to get married? Should I or Shouldn’t I?” At any age we can let you know the tax implications of many major life situations. Come see us if you’re asking, “Should I marry him? I love him but can we afford to lose $5000.00 of tax credits and refunds this year? Should I have a baby? Should I get a divorce? Should I buy a new home? What will the tax implications be?”
Foreclosure Tax Planning – Did your home foreclose? Did you abandon a bank owned home? We can help with all tax implications of foreclosures. We specialize in forms 1099a & 1099c.
Marriage – Are you getting married? Do your taxes change? YES they DO! We can use your current tax return to help plan your next year’s return with a new spouse and added children that may come with a new marriage.
Giving to a Charity or Individual – We can help with planning for giving money or property to others. If you give too much to one individual, will they have to file that donation on their taxes? Will the $5,000 you plan to give to a child help next year? Will giving that new car away to a charity benefit your tax return? We can help with all charitable questions and situations.

Retirement Tax Preparation – As you know retirement may be uncertain. How much do I take out? How much do I need to live on? What happens if I take that money out?

We can help with these questions and many more!
