Meeting Your Business Needs

Seaman, Shinkunas & Lindgren P.C. can meet your comprehensive business needs through traditional accounting products and services as well as advanced advisory and analysis. Here are some of the services that our firm provides for our business clients.

Advanced Tax Management Services

Today's tax environment is no small matter to leave to just form-filling at the end of the year.  The tax burden of a small business owner can be upwards of 50% of net profit from his business.  With an effective tax rate like that it becomes as important to manage your tax liability as much as it would to manage your gross margin.  At Seaman, Shinkunas & Lindgren P.C., we view your after-tax income as your true bottom line.  That is where our Advanced Tax Management Services can help you minimize that extensive burden.

Whether you are an individual or business, Seaman, Shinkunas & Lindgren P.C. team will guide you through a full range of tax planning and preparation decisions with a strategy specific to your trade and circumstances.  Our goal is to minimize your tax liabilities by providing you with a wide range of tax planning options and to keep you informed of your projected liabilities well before they are due. 

Our Advanced Tax Management Services are characterized by responsiveness, insight into the latest tax changes, the ability to implement recommendations and a grip on how your tax liability is affected at the business, individual and estate levels.  We are able to handle some of the broadest possible ranges in which U.S. and multi-state level taxes will affect your standard of living.  See how our Tax Management Services can help you get where your business and family need to go.
