Estate, Gift & Trust Tax Planning & Preparation
Few people want to think about estate and gift planning, but for some this can be a valuable exercise. Estate planning encompasses more than the distribution of your assets. A good estate plan takes into account a wide a range of issues, such as who will take care of your children, to minimizing or completely avoiding estate taxes. We work closely with estate planning attorneys to make sure all tax aspects are addressed in your plan. In conjunction with planning, we also prepare any necessary estate, gift and trust tax returns.
I was referred to Larry back in 2004 while Larry was still a Masters student at Grand Valley State University. As a relatively new entrepreneur still trying to achieve consistent success, I was a little leery about utilizing the services of a young-green-behind-the-ears CPA, as opposed to a seasoned veteran, given the ever-increasing complexity of the U.S. tax system – especially when it comes to small business-related taxes. Those concerns were quickly allayed as Larry proceeded to provide prompt, professional, ethical tax consultation services innovatively. Oftentimes, he requested tax documentation that even our corporate accountant had not thought of preparing, all in the interest of a stronger tax analysis/filing. Today, after another 10+ years of prompt, professional, ethical services, he has become that seasoned veteran, and continues to provide that confidence with each tax year filing.
