Year-End Tax Planning

During the fall, we start tax planning to ensure that our clients have taken advantage of tax-saving strategies during the year. CMP has developed a checklist that helps our tax professionals and the clients they assist pinpoint each tax planning strategy, guaranteeing the lowest possible tax bill in April.

Transaction Tax Planning

At one time or another, every taxpayer will encounter an unusual tax situation. Examples of this may include selling an investment, buying an investment, starting a business, exercising employer stock options, selling a closely held business, etc. Through proper planning, clients may structure their transaction to save or postpone taxes. We encourage our clients to consult with us whenever they face something out of the ordinary that may have a taxable consequence.

Retirement Tax Planning

Retirement is a major life-changing event that must be navigated carefully. The professionals at CMP work with a team of attorneys and financial planners to help retirees make the right financial and tax decisions. We love helping clients meet their retirement goals and protect the assets they have worked so hard to accumulate.

Proper Entity Selection

Picking the correct business or investment entity is critical to minimizing income, and determining estate taxes. Whether you are setting up an S-Corporation, LLC or Partnership, we can help you choose the proper legal entity to minimize tax and limit liability. CMP has developed new business startup checklists for Sole Proprietorships, LLCs/Partnerships and S-Corporations to help clients navigate the intricacies of each tax situation.
