Tax Planning & Preparation

Yes, tax laws change, but we stay vigilant for you

Congress continually tinkers with the Internal Revenue Code, which means tax laws are constantly changing. In turn, the IRS adopts positions on various tax matters based upon its own interpretation of the laws. Meanwhile, the courts are continually sorting out what those laws really mean and how they should be applied. On top of that, court rulings in different districts can actually conflict with one another.
