We use computerized tax preparation software to prepare individual, corporate, partnership, trust and estate tax returns. This system allows us to use our expertise, review the information and use the computer to make the numerous calculations required for accurate returns.
Estate and Retirement Planning
Our approach to estate planning involves reviewing the documents in place such as wills, trusts, partnerships, etc. and discussing with the client their goals and desires. The initial review will determine if their goals are achieved through the documents. The second review is a process of achieving those goals and working with the other members or the estate team to have them implemented.

It is our belief that the clients know their business better than we do, but that we can assist them in planning and complying with the various government and support firms to implement their business plan.
