Do you qualify for inexpensive internet?


A coalition of the 20 top internet service providers in the U.S. plan to join the Affordability Connectivity Program, a government program to offer broadband internet to millions of Americans.

While we love to meet in person with everyone and gather your data, we use a secured portal to give you an option of transmitting sensitive personal information safely to save time.

Tax Planning

We helped a small, family-owned corporation declare a special dividend that will be taxed at a 15% qualified dividend rate in 2012. Had the corporation waited until 2013 to pay a dividend, the shareholders could potentially face an income rate of 20% or greater.

Compensation Planning

We worked with a closely-held small corporation to declare an end-of-year bonus to owner-employees that reduced the corporation tax rate from 35% to 15%, which saved the owners over $30,000 annually in income taxes.

Business Planning & Analysis

We worked with a health care partnership to reduce expenses that eventually led to the elimination of a $35,000 line of credit and assisted in the renegotiation of the building mortgage, computer lease and telephone lease that resulted in a 30% increase in the partner’s monthly draws.


We outsourced the accounting and finance operation of an 8-person small business and saved the company $11,000 annually.

Retirement Planning

We helped three companies in 2012 change the type of retirement plan the owners had in place that allowed the employees to put away more money from retirement, while reducing their personal tax burden, as well as the company’s tax liability.
