What We Do:
We provide complete tax related services to our clients. Our focus is on the individual who has the financial resources to take advantage of multi-faceted investment opportunities. This includes, but is not limited to, securities, alternative investments and real estate. We involve ourselves at each step of the investment process. We encourage the client to speak to us while he or she is thinking about the investment in order for us to contribute our expertise and experience at that juncture.
We think about and monitor the client’s tax situation throughout the year and when applicable, suggest to the client tax strategies that enable them to organize their affairs in such a way as to minimize their tax impact.
We encourage the client to focus on wealth transfer and other aspects of estate planning and have us participate with the attorney and other professionals in the drafting of legal documents and in executing these strategies.
We project the client’s taxable income several times a year. This involves an analysis of their activity and communication with their money managers, as necessary. These projections are done for both estimated tax requirements and year-end tax planning.
In the event that the client does not have access to any outside professional to complete a transaction, such as an attorney or insurance agent, we will make the appropriate recommendation.
See the client services page for more details.
