Molinari Oswald is not a firm that is in business so that you pay no tax. We are in business so that you pay no more in tax than is legally necessary. In mathematics, number problems could never equal zero that don’t really equal zero. Things are what they are, but we need to know the rules that govern them.
Many people would look at the above equation and say the sum is 104. But if we apply the rule of the order of operations, performing division and multiplication before subtraction and addition, we would come to the sum of 62, which is correct.
The truth of the matter is that if you have a straight W-2, you may very well complete your taxes correctly. But with the tax laws as they are, if you have business income, business expenses, deductions, savings, and tax deferred earnings, etc., etc., that neat tidy simple problem becomes so convoluted you have no idea where to start!
We know where to start, let us sort through the tax equation for you. We’ve studied that order of operations, we do this all day, every day, and we want to help make your tax filings accurate, painless, and efficient, so your bottom line is no more than it needs to be.
Truthfully, the principle here can be applied to all areas of accounting. If you need tax planning, business formation, succession planning, estate administration or planning, valuations, compilations, or anything else, please let us help you get what you need right the first time. We have a motto around here and if I do say so, it adds up – we go beyond the numbers.
