Tax Planning for Businesses and Individuals

Tax planning is often overlooked, but is the most valuable step that one can take in minimizing the tax impact. At Collette Professional Accounting, we prefer to ‘plan’ the amount of tax that you or your business will pay by taking preliminary measures to assess the potential tax hit, and then work to reduce the tax burden for the current year with a watchful eye on the long-term financial impact. ‘Plan’ for your tax liability—- instead of letting your tax liability plan your financial future for you.

Tax Preparation for Business, Estate, and Individuals

We have the expertise to prepare all kinds of returns. We prepare taxes for individuals, dependents, sole proprietorships, partnerships, s-corporations, corporations, non-profits, estates, ex-patriot returns, amended returns, 1099 forms, W-2 forms and more… Just ask us!

IRS Audit or Collection Representation

If you are receiving ‘love’ letters from the IRS, we can help. We can act as your agent in dealing with the IRS so that you never experience the exasperation of working through that huge governmental bureaucracy. We can represent you if:

  • you have received a letter regarding a past return,
  • you are being audited,
  • you question the amount of tax liability that they say you owe,
  • you are in arrears with tax payments,
  • you want to establish a payment plan with the IRS.

Or, you may just need confirmation and guidance regarding a communication that you have received.

QuickBooks Set Up and Consultations

We provide certified QuickBooks Pro-Advisor services with many years of experience using multiple QuickBooks products. We can construct your unique business accounts for you if you are just starting out with a QuickBooks product so that you have all the accounts you will need, but not the ones that you don’t.

We can also provide consultation services to streamline or clean up your accounts or work with a new employee who may be unfamiliar with the product.
