Today's tax laws are so complicated that unless your financial affairs are extremely simple, chances are you will benefit from at least occasional help from a tax professional. It is too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled if you prepare only one return a year. Even the use of computer software is no substitute for the assistance of a seasoned tax preparer.

We prepare hundreds of tax returns every year. We know what to look for when your return is prepared. More importantly, you will have someone to answer your questions during the rest of the year. And we can put you on our mailing list to receive timely tax, business, and financial advice.

  • Any United States person who has a financial interest, or signature authority, or other authority over any financial account in a foreign country, and if the aggregate value of these accounts exceeds US$10,000 at any time during the calendar year, must file a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts (FBAR).
  • A "foreign country" includes all geographical areas outside the United States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the territories and possessions of the United States (including Guam, American Samoa, and the United States Virgin Islands)
  • This form needs to be completed and submitted to Internal Revenue Service before June 30th of the succeeding year.
