"There is nothing wrong with a strategy to avoid the payment of taxes. The Internal Revenue Code doesn’t prevent that."

- William H. Renquist, Supreme Court Justice


Pro active tax planning is a strategy or series of tax planning strategies designed to take advantage of every legal avenue to pay less taxes. Without tax planning, a taxpayer can end up paying thousands in unnecessary taxes they should not be paying in the first place.

Accounting and tax preparation services often leave small business owners, real estate investors and retirees overpaying income taxes on business revenue, medical services, rental income, capital gains, retirement income and even social security.
