As a citizen, you have an obligation to the country’s tax system, but you also have an obligation to yourself to know your rights under the law and possible tax deductions – and to claim every one of them.
-Donald Alexander, Former IRS Commissioner

Proper planning takes time; research has to be done to determine what entity choice is best for each business and what unique deductions can be taken.  A line by line analysis of the tax return is necessary to do a thorough job for the client.  Tax Strategists have numerous resources at their disposal to analyze each area of the return to identify as many deductions as possible.
We listen to the client and then choose the right diagnostic tools at our disposal in order for the tax plan to work for the client.  True tax planning takes time to review the solution and see if it will work for the client.  A tax planner should not only look at the short-term solution but rather the short AND long term solutions to ensure the client is in the best possible solution.
