Our Philosophy

Our clients are some of the smartest individuals we know. They are professors, surgeons, lawyers, executives, masters in their fields. Yet, due to the extremely complex and time consuming ordeal of preparing a US tax return, these same individuals need to hire a professional. The US has an entire industry of tax preparers and attorneys whose only job is to help people understand the tax laws and calculate their taxes. How insane is this situation? Most professionals would never openly advocate against their own profession, but I guess that makes us different (or crazy).

We believe that in the perfect world our firm’s tax services would not be needed by a majority of taxpayers, and instead we would be helping clients save their money and plan for their futures full time. One thing we do know is that taxes and financial planning go hand in hand, and that is why we offer BOTH tax compliance and fee-only financial planning services to our clients. Having a team of tax and financial advisors working together creates efficiencies and helps streamline our clients’ financial life.
