Tax Planning & Preparation

No one wants to pay more tax than absolutely necessary. Because our tax system is constantly changing and increasing in complexity, it’s often difficult to determine what the impact will be. Since every business decision you make has a future tax ramification, it is important that you engage a trusted tax professional to help you assess the impact of business decisions.

At PBMares we go far beyond simply preparing state and federal tax forms. Our intimate knowledge of your business and the environment in which you operate allows us to take advantage of all the options available. We place heavy emphasis on tax planning and use sound strategies to ensure that you are paying the least amount of tax possible. Working with you throughout the year, we will develop an integrated and flexible tax plan that considers corporate, individual and estate factors for tax minimization.

Our team members are separated into specializations within this service area, so we can be sure we are up-to-date on different technical aspects related to the services listed below. This is your assurance you have a “go to” person on any issue in this service area.
