Richard has significant experience handling accounting, tax planning, and tax compliance issues with all types of entities, from one-person operation to large, multi-state corporations. He is experienced in working with manufacturing companies and their owners. He has helped many of these companies realize thousands of dollars in tax savings by proper tax planning and timely elections. Over the years, Richard has appealed many Internal Revenue Service and state decisions for his clients, in most cases saving them substantial taxes and penalties.
In addition, Richard has focused on individual tax strategies, including the creation of trusts, estate and gift planning, and family limited partnerships. He has worked with public companies for the past 35 years, and has an in-depth understanding of their unique tax and accounting needs.
