Individual Tax Services – Bauer Evans | Certified Public Accountants


Tax Preparation

The Internal Revenue Code consists of more than 70,000 pages. Then there are the Regulations and Guidance, and don’t forget the states. We have the expertise and ongoing professional education to prepare your returns right.

We will apply the most recent law changes, rulings and cases to find the best benefit for you. In addition, we will look forward to the current and future years to be sure we understand how decisions made now will impact you in the future.


Tax Planning

Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We go beyond tax compliance and proactively recommend tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income.

Here's just a few of the Tax Saving Strategies we use:

  • Shifting income or expenses from one year to another in order to have them fall where it will be taxed at a lower rate
  • Understanding accelerated deductions such as depreciation strategies
  • Understanding tax credits such as fuel tax and R&D
  • International tax filings
  • Business entity structuring

Multi-State Taxation

As complex as the Internal Revenue Code is, each state also has its own set of rules. Some states apply a tax on net income while others tax based on gross receipts. It is very important to understand when your activities are triggered a tax filing or paying requirements. If you have never filed, there is no statute of limitations. The state taxing agencies can go back to the beginning of your existence to collect back taxes, penalties and interest.


Tax Examination

Letters and notices from the IRS state taxing agencies can be daunting and working with a revenue agent can be intimidating. We can help you to understand what they are looking for and the best way to resolve the matter with the least stress and expense.


TAX DISPUTE RESOLUTION

IRS Problem Resolution Services (retainers required):

IRS Audit Representation – Rarely do our clients have to speak directly with the IRS. We can handle the audit for you.

Non-Filed Tax Returns – If you do not file, you can be prosecuted and punished with potential jail.

Back Taxes Owed – It's amazing how fast tax penalties and interest add up. We offer several options when it comes to resolving unpaid taxes.

Payroll Tax Issues – The IRS views failing to pay payroll taxes as the cardinal sin of tax delinquency because a large portion of the payroll taxes are your employees' withholdings.

Liens – Liens filed against you by the taxing authorities show up on your credit report and often prevent you from opening a checking account or borrowing against any assets, like your home.

Levies – We are often able to get levies released and help you get out of a terrible situation.

Wage Garnishment – The payment plan negotiated by us is always more favorable than any IRS wage garnishment. It allows you to receive your whole paycheck without fears of future wage garnishments.

Seizures – A Seizure should not be taken lightly. The IRS will ultimately pursue seizure of your physical assets: your home, cars, boats, jewelry, motorcycles, insurance policies, even your retirement funds.

Offer In Compromise – Did you know that you may be able to settle your debt with the government for a fraction of the liability with an Offer in Compromise program?

Payment Plan – If you don't qualify for the Offer In Compromise program, a Payment Plan may be the way to resolve your problem.
