We pay 100% of any penalties and interest resulting from our mistakes.

Bookkeeping

Do you really enjoy spending your free time on government forms and paperwork after a long day at the office? Whether you work from home or drive to the office, activities that diminish your business focus can not only reduce your effectiveness in your career, but also cheat you out of your precious free time. 

When you have accurate records throughout the year, you and your professional advisor can plan tax strategies in “real” time rather than waiting until after the year is over and many opportunities are lost.

No matter where you work or whatever the time zone, we can be there to give you more time to do what you do best as we do what we do best.

Our bookkeeping packages can relieve you of a multitude of duties, such as:

  • Receiving and paying client-approved invoices
  • Billing customers, collections and deposits
  • Bank reconciliations and monitoring bank account balance(s)
  • Management reports customized for your needs
  • Budgeting and projections
  • Consultation and advice when you need it from our full staff of professionals
  • Other services and reports customized for your business

Hiring an expert for bookkeeping and related tasks is probably far less expensive than you would think – and will free you up to do more of what you love, whether it is serving customers, improving your business, or simply getting the down time you need to re-energize after a tough day’s work. Having that expert come to you through the magic of technology also means you never have to leave your desk to consult with your professional!

Tax Services

Tax planning
Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. Tax compliance is the minimum threshold that your CPA firm should clear. That’s not good enough for us; we begin working for you when you sign your FPA by scheduling a call to learn more about your specific situation and the opportunities that may be available.

That means we’re here for you at the beginning of each tax year, not just when it’s time to file a tax return and it’s too late to do much to reduce your tax burden. Our proactive recommendations don’t just look at the current year, either. Our strategies include multi-year planning to help take advantage of tax breaks when they will be most beneficial, not just when they become available.

We study current tax law, complex tax codes, and new tax regulations by attending tax seminars and participating in discussions with other tax professionals throughout the country. And we familiarize ourselves with the tax codes of the various states and localities where our clients live and work.

Tax compliance
We may have offices in the heartland, but that in no way limits our reach.  With 36 years of combined experience, our team is experienced with multiple business settings and our clients extend from coast to coast and Mexico. Whether you are an ex-pat or have never left the shores of the good ole’ USA, your tax preparation and planning is in good hands at Fox & Company.

Other tax requirements
Every state and locality has its own set of regulations. That means your situation may not be limited to income taxes but can also include property taxes, heavy highway vehicle use taxes, occupational taxes, and multiple other forms specific to where you live and also where you work. If you’re not sure exactly what you need to file to be compliant, we’ll have the answer.

Our goals are aligned with yours:

  •         To ensure that you pay the lowest amount of taxes allowable by law,
  •         To make sure you’re compliant with federal, state, and local tax regulations, and
  •         To educate you about our recommendations to increase your awareness of choices that are available to you.
