For our Financial Planning and Wealth Management clients only, we have developed a relationship where our office can coordinate information to help provide you with your annual federal and state tax return in a time-efficient and cost-effective manner. Your annual return is prepared and reviewed by a licensed tax professional to ensure your tax return is prepared correctly, reviewed and filed on time.
Already have a tax professional? No problem.
We are happy to continue interfacing with your existing tax professional. Our tax service is a great option for clients who normally self-prepare, use software, or are looking for a new tax professional.
Why should I use this service?
By offering access to professional tax-preparation through our office, we can provide the preparer with information we know about your tax situation from your financial plan and investment accounts. This also allows us to select the best tax professional for your situation, and to make any necessary adjustments as good tax preparers and your life change over time. We have been asked time and again by our clients for referrals to the best tax professionals for their situation. We aim to become our clients' main point of contact for tax planning and tax return preparation and filing.
