Tax Planning & Preparation

Tax planning and preparation form a winning combination for our successful individual and business clients. Whether you are an individual or a multi-tiered partnership, our experienced staff can develop tax strategies that take advantage of new tax laws and legislation.

The Holden Moss tax planning process provides a proven process to identify tax planning ideas and leverage research and best practices to efficiently save taxes. Sophisticated and proprietary tax software performs a Tax Diagnostic on your tax return to determine which strategies might apply to save taxes. Our Tax Diagnostic can be used to analyze the effect of new law changes – which are comming more frequently – and even the effect of court cases. The tax diagnostic can keep you fully aware of planning ideas and strategy – proactive tax planning on a monthly or quarterly basis. Know the effect of what is happening before hearing the bad news resulting from an un-planned tax return.

Tax plannning involves more than mere preparation services once a year. Tax planning is an ongoing process requiring excellent and frequent communication. The more we know what is going on, the better we are at planning and structuring transactions to best tax advantage.
