Our team of tax planning professionals  
Client's current tax professional
teamed up with financial advisor

Most of our clients have existing relationships with a tax professional they have trusted for many years to do their taxes, and with whom they are satisfied. It is our goal to strengthen their existing relationship with their current tax advisor, by working together to be sure that all aspects of the client's financial holdings are considered, and strategies implemented so that the client minimizes their taxes to potentially receive the best financial outcomes possible. Together we can serve our joint clients in ways that can only be accomplished with this team approach!


We work with our clients' existing local tax professionals to strengthen their relationships, and our mutual clients' financial outcomes through professional teamwork!  We also team up with tax strategist Nick Stovall, who is known nationwide for his expertise, and can be consulted for second opinion tax reviews.
