Tax Services

As accountants, we live in a world of regulations, and we take pride in helping our clients navigate within that world. We have the expertise to ensure you remain in compliance with the IRS and all appropriate governing bodies. But the Barnes Dennig tax team goes a step further, serving as true business advisors – with an eye on growing your business, not merely completing a tax return.

Our professionals are well-versed in the many tax credits and incentives that are available, as well as the various structuring options. They receive advanced training to remain abreast of all trends and changing regulations. With so much uncertainty over future tax law, we have dedicated resources to ensure that our clients are maximizing every opportunity that the tax code allows and continue to maximize opportunities as the tax code changes.

We believe all of our clients deserve a high degree of timely and creative tax planning. Throughout the year, we discuss how changing local and national tax law, new pronouncements and various judicial rulings and interpretations will affect you, your business and your tax reporting requirements. We are available to discuss any matters that may arise during the year.

Whether you are looking to grow your business or strengthen your personal finances, we can help. Our tax services include:

Team Concept

We have developed cross-functional client service teams dedicated to the needs and nuances of the construction, real estate, manufacturing and wholesale/distribution industries and the non-profit sector. We incorporate tax specialists on the team, rather than in a separate department, so that tax savings ideas and tax strategies are always fully considered and communication is more efficient. This leads to a seamless engagement and a less intrusive experience for your internal accounting staff.
