45-Minute Consultation With CPA/Managing Member For Traders
Do you qualify for trader tax status? Should you elect MTM accounting? Can you benefit from an entity? How does the new tax law impact you? Our answers can save clients thousands of dollars.
Update Jan. 6, 2017: Our 30-minute consultation has been increased to 45 minutes to cover the impact of the new tax law on 2018 tax planning and entity choice.
Our consultation service is an excellent way to start working with our firm. It gives clients the opportunity to get their crucial tax questions answered. We get comfortable with each other, and it leads to successful entity formation, tax compliance (planning and preparation), accounting, IRS controversy, and other services.
We require a 45-minute consultation before you purchase our entity formation service so we can be sure forming one is right for you.
