I’m going to take a moment to address you who might NOT be using our services thus far. There’s a word or two for current J Allen & Associates clients here as well, but allow me to explain.
You see, sometimes, you just know you need to make a change, but the timing isn’t quite right.
Well … is now the time?
The reason I ask is that with personal tax returns behind us now, and the advent of a brand new tax regime (under the TCJA — The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2018, or “tax reform”) … if you are wanting to have you and your business take full advantage of what’s now available to you as a Frederick business owner, you might want to give us a call.
Here’s what I mean (and pardon me in advance for being a little blunt) … you see, while some of our “competition” is out there taking their weeks and months off, living off of the fat of tax season, we’re attending conferences, developing our proficiencies in managing our business (and yours), saving our business owner clients tons of money and hassle, and, well, publishing this business tax blog for our local Frederick small business community.
All of it is to serve you BETTER than “Joe Down The Street” who may slap together some paperwork and make it look official for the IRS — and then sips margaritas by the pool all summer when they should be working to improve, and offering proactive solutions to their clients.
I warned you that I would be blunt — but it’s because you deserve better.
You see, we’ve helped many business owners “make the switch” over to us, year after year. And I know that you may have established a rhythm with your current provider (even if it’s not a “good” rhythm), and that you could dread the prospect of having to teach a new tax accountant about your business and goals.
But we learn very fast.
If you’re already using us, then I’d like to encourage you to share this particular post with a business friend who might be able to use our help. Tell them to mention you referred them, and we’ll make sure to properly thank you when we meet with your friend.
If you did NOT use us this year, then now is a great time to have us look things over.
Again, I’d rather not bad-mouth other tax accountants in the Frederick area, but suffice it to say we’ve had to do our share of “re-doing” other accountants’ work. In some cases, we’ve recovered significant sums during an amendment process, by reviewing an old return (from the last 3 years), and taking advantage of ethical, legal tax credits and deductions that other accountants don’t utilize.
Call us now, and we’ll book your 2018 TCJA planning session for sometime in May or June, and we’ll work PRO-ACTIVELY on your asset and accounting mix to ensure that your 2018 returns are as well-protected from Uncle Sam’s grasping hands as possible.
