Tax Planning & Compliance
Accounting firms typically take a historical approach to handling income taxes. In other words, they wait until late in the year and then tell you what has happened.
BMSS believes that excellence in providing tax services centers on advanced planning and timely service. Your BMSS tax team is available for consultation throughout the year - not just during tax season.
Our professionals are highly skilled and experienced in the intricacies of individual, corporate, federal, state, multi-state and local taxation. BMSS devotes significant resources to train staff and provide our team with the necessary Continuing Professional Education (CPE) to stay on top of changes that affect our profession and the tax areas in which they practice.
We work closely with our clients to communicate important tax issues as they develop. Our professionals take the lead in research and in educating the community and our clients by providing seminars, presentations, newsletters and articles. As a result, we are available to keep clients up-to-date on recent cases and breaking issues both from a technical and practical viewpoint. At year-end, BMSS works with clients to perform a tax planning and strategy session to help clients maximize their possible tax savings and minimize their tax liabilities.
BMSS is an early adopter of industry-leading tax software, processes and programs. Our workflow management system allows staff to know the exact status of every tax project and allows us to easily provide clients with project updates. We use robust online tax research databases and software to handle more complex and technical tax returns.
