What we Do
Business & Individual Tax Returns
Individual Tax Returns
Our core specialty is the preparation of tax returns for individuals. A big issue with many “self-preparers”, is they are unaware of all the deductions available to them. There are 73,000 pages to explain the US tax code so it’s pretty easy to overlook things.
Small business tax return preparation and filing instructions is a core service offered to our clients. Whether your company is a C corporation, S Corp, Limited Liability Company, Partnership or Sole Proprietor, a properly prepared tax return can be filed to minimize the tax owed.
Tax planning for individual and small business clients is something that is often overlooked. Effective tax minimization begins with a long-term tax strategy to establish overall objectives and is maintained with conscientious and consistent annual tax forecasting and mid-year tax planning.
At People’s Tax Office, No Client is Too Big or Small.
With extensive training and staying up to date with tax regulations, tax preparers know the ins and outs of tax filing. We are familiar with most problems in the industry and will help solve them for you. It is almost impossible for expert tax preparers to make errors; thus, there are very few chances and likelihood for you to be subjected to an audit.
Tax rules are quite complex, especially if you are new. Before you can make use of credit or a deduction, you must qualify for it. Tax professionals can show various tax issues and how to go about them. They can help you determine whether you are eligible to use education credit or tuition deduction, even when you are only allowed to use one. The preparer can help you decide which one is the better deal.
