Business returns are generally prepared by professionals because of the complex nature of the reporting requirements. Tax returns should be prepared from a clean set of company books with good record keeping policies. The correct tax treatment of items such as partners basis and owners equity, distributions to owners, shareholder loans, and officer wages can be critical in a good tax plan. Going with a CPA to prepare your business returns can make the difference.

Trust Services - Tax Preparation & Accountings

Trustees have an important responsibility and legal obligation to carry out their fiduciary duties on behalf of the trust in good faith. These duties include seeing that the trust is carrying out the directions of the trust document. The trustee also has a duty to keep accurate accounting records of the trust’s assets, income, and expenditures, and provide the accounting to beneficiaries. The trustee also has the responsibility to see that the trust timely files any income tax returns.

The selection of a knowledgeable CPA can help to provide valuable advisement in this area. I have years of experience dealing with trust issues. I have experience in the preparation of Form 1041 for simple and complex trusts, and for small estates and in the preparation of trust accounting reports in compliance with probate court requirements. Prepared reports are accurate and complete for the accounting period.
