Payroll Service

Would you like to cut your taxes?

You can, you know.  Every taxpayer can – by taking the deductions and credits available in the law and planning transactions with the tax consequences in mind. 

You’ve undoubtedly heard the saying “it’s not what you know but who you know.”  Well that’s very true when it comes to successfully managing your taxes.  Because to minimize your taxes you need to know the rules.  And the rules tend to get more complicated every year so it’s best to know someone who knows the rules – like a good CPA.  Then use the rules to take advantage of year-round tax planning opportunities.

We at Payne & Henderson, CPAs know that tax planning is a year-round endeavor if you want to achieve the maximum in tax savings.  A CPA can be a valuable partner in helping you to develop a tax plan, thereby keeping your tax bill to a minimum.
