As a business owner, you are more than the sum of your parts.  You have individual taxes, multiple levels of business taxes, estate taxes, pension plans, business succession, children and retirement.

It’s no easy task managing all of these, PLUS running your business and making a profit. It’s critical to view the isolated pieces as a whole. A short-term tax move might not align with your long-term plan.  Every client’s situation is unique and requires special consideration.  That’s where we come in.

The experienced team at HLA knows business tax, as well as individual tax laws.  We pledge to explore ways to lower both your current and future taxes. We’ll help you strategize while meeting your tax planning and tax preparation needs with sound accounting guidance. We can assist with a myriad of tax scenarios.

Our dedicated tax department monitors what’s going on in Washington throughout the year.  We use tax strategies that take advantage of the latest laws and legislations. We have successfully built our practice by helping our clients lower their taxes, taking advantage of all deductions and credits available.
