Our Tax Planning Philosophy

Our ultimate goal is to reduce your tax liability over your lifetime – not just in any given year. That’s why we take a holistic approach with these five basic principles:

Our Tax Planning Philosophy

1. The purpose of a business is to make money; paying taxes is a reality of achieving that purpose.

2. Prioritize profitability over the immediate gratification of a tax deduction. Don't spend money just to avoid taxes.

3. Think long-term when accelerating deductions. You may benefit from delaying deductions to a higher-earning year.

4. If you fall in the 24% Federal tax bracket or lower, consider paying taxes now, especially if you expect revenue and profits to grow in the near future.

5. Pay yourself a market-based wage to optimize your payroll for maximum deductions and retirement savings.

Tax Planning and Preparation

Tax prep can be overwhelming, especially for business owners. If you’re like most, you may sign your tax return without really knowing whether it’s accurate. After all, you’re focused on the big picture – not the details of your corporate books or the tax code. Yet we often find that tax returns are filed with mistakes, omissions and missed opportunities. That’s where we can help. Our annual tax review process ensures your plan is implemented accurately. By serving as a second pair of eyes on your return, we work with you and your accountant to catch any potential errors and make sure you’re taking advantage of every opportunity. We believe collaboration drives success. That’s why we keep you and your accountant informed on our planning strategies and updated on our progress with an annual Simplify365 Tax Summary. It serves as a summary of all the strategies we implemented during the year, as well as a summary of your financial benefit. Ultimately, this annual tax summary as well as our tax diligence process ensures everyone stays on the same page.
