Keith A Cole, CPA

While a Marine Corps machine gunner in Vietnam, I received a letter from my widowed mother (my dad died while I was in high school).  She was raising my younger brother and sister and worked in a laundromat.  I don’t know how much she got paid for a job like that, but I’m pretty sure it certainly wasn’t much.  It was just before Christmas in 1966, I received a letter from her that she was being audited by the Internal Revenue Service!  Now why would they do that?  Being on the other side of the world, how could I help?  But what I did do was to promise myself that I was going learn as much as possible about income tax and help as many people as I could who wanted my help to save some of their hard-earned dollars and to have the peace of mind that their taxes were being done the best as the law would allow.

Let Us Help:

Dear Friend,

I have a feeling I know why you’re reading this right now.

You need more time in your day. Running a business is extremely demanding, and there just isn’t enough time in the day to keep all the plates from spinning out of control. And what you need most right now is more proactive help with your business finances and tax strategy. As soon as possible. In fact, yesterday would have been ideal. Am I close?

We get it. We’ve worked with plenty of businesses who have to cobble together 9 different software programs to keep everything straight, or who just wash their hands of it all and put everything on the credit card … and then try to clean up every year after the fact. And they know that this is no way to properly monitor profit margins, cash controls, account management, tax strategy and all of the myriad components of an effective financial system for a business.

Perhaps this is your story too. Or perhaps you’ve reached a stage of development in your business that you want to pass the baton of accounting to another expert team so your expert team can focus on what they do best: making sales and taking care of customers.

Or are you just starting your business and want to start things off on the right foot?

Whatever the reason, we want you to know that our team has been diligently and effectively taking care of the accounting needs of countless organizations in a wide variety of industries—discreetly and expertly handling the ongoing financial management of tax burdens, payroll, bookkeeping, and other comprehensive accounting services while providing expertise in business planning, coaching, and strategic consulting that many businesses need.

Because here’s a certain truth as it relates to taxes and your business: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your business’ hard-earned money in their accounts. And yes, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular business owners, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year.

It doesn’t have to be this way. You don’t have to hand more dollars over to the government than they require, just because you don’t know their rules as well as they do. You don’t have to live in a constant state of anxiety over the state of your books, feeling guilty about the time you should be devoting to keeping your business profitable.

In fact, to help you find answers to your questions, I’ve compiled some resources in the last couple of years, for business people like you, in response to the specific tax and accounting questions I’ve received from my clients.
