TAX PREPARATION & PLANNING
An important element in any financial plan is tax planning with the ultimate goal of minimizing your tax liability. This may involve reviewing your past tax returns, working jointly with other tax or financial professionals and/or preparing your future tax returns.
Business owners have special needs. I can help you anticipate those needs - whether they are executive bonus plans to attract and retain key executives, or insurance plans to protect you and your partners in the event of death or disability.
You work your whole life to build your estate; you should have control over what happens to it upon your death. I can help you implement a plan that protects your assets from the consequences of state taxes and ensures that your estate is settled on your terms, not someone else's.
Because planning your financial future can be complicated and your set of circumstances unique, it's important that you have help of a trained and experienced professional. I will work with you to help you plan for a future in which your goals are achieved and your dreams become reality.
ASSET & INCOME PROTECTION
Life insurance policies are designed with different needs in mind. Whether you are looking for temporary protection, lifelong protection, an estate planning strategy, or cash value accumulation, my expertise in personal life insurance can help you protect what's important to you, secure your future, and improve your life.
My job is to make sure you are financially prepared to enter your retirement years. With the variety of different alternatives available, I am ready to work with you to build a secure financial future for you.
Here to Protect You
I became a financial advisor because I wanted to help people like you - to have a positive impact on their lives. My goal is to help you build your plan on a strong and secure financial foundation.
The best way to achieve your financial goals is to have a plan - one that will help you meet your needs today, but flexible enough to grow and change tomorrow. There is no simple blueprint that works for everyone. Your plan must be tailored just for you if it's going to feel right and help achieve your goals. The process begins with understanding what is most important to you. I then develop a clear long term plan that considers those needs, your goals and your priorities.
My clients rely on me to help them formulate such plans and put them in motion. Together we monitor their progress to make sure they stay on track.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR TAX PREPARER: CONSUMER BILL OF RIGHTS
TAX PREP CHECKLIST
Make sure you have ALL your documents before forwarding to us. Tax returns are prepared based on the accuracy and completeness of the information that you provide to us.
Documents should be in summary format with totals for each category. (Receipts are used for audits only).
Use the Income Tax Organizer as a guide in gathering your tax information and note any changes.
We need a copy of your driver’s license (front and back), and a copy of your bank check (for direct deposit).
We do not accept credit cards.
NOTABLE 2022 TAX CHANGES
The Protection You Need
Half of the Child Tax Credit (CTC) is being paid in advance, so you will see a decrease in CTC which will result in a lower refund/ increase in tax liability since you are receiving half of the credit in advance as opposed to receiving the lump sum on your tax return.
If you are 72 before the end of 2022 you are required to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your retirement plan. RMD will increase to 73 in 2023.
There is no waiver on the 10% penalty for early withdrawal on retirement
