Individuals, Families and Corporate Executives
The U.S. Federal tax code is constantly changing. Why drive yourself crazy trying to keep up – and risk non-compliance or missed opportunities to legitimately protect your hard-earned assets? Though tax preparation software has its uses, it can’t replace the hands-on knowledge of complex tax code and “big picture” planning that allows us to identify the tax strategies that are most beneficial to you. Couto DeFranco’s tax services ensure that you’re compliant with all current tax laws and meet all filing deadlines with time to spare. Corporate executives will appreciate Couto DeFranco’s combination of industry knowledge and tax expertise, which helps align personal and business tax strategies for highly effective protection of assets and maximization of executive compensation plans, including stock options.
