As responsible, law-abiding citizens, we all have to do our taxes. It’s our duty to help fund the public programs and infrastructure we use every day. But most taxpayers often procrastinate, and April 15th arrives quickly. Rather than waiting until the last minute, tax preparation should be thought of as financial planning. Taxes can help prepare your future finances. At least that’s how we look at it, and thinking about your finances proactively can help a lot.

Financial Planning

As one of the largest accounting firms on the Central Coast, C&D has been helping clients with their finances for over 50 years. We don’t think it’s enough to simply claim the standard deduction and move on until the next tax year. A trusted professional by your side, like the CPAs at C&D, will think about your finances holistically and help you plan for the future with ongoing business support. We can anticipate certain events and help you plan your finances around your taxes, rather than the other way around. By partnering with you as a client, we learn about your goals, objectives, and financial endeavors. And by doing so, we can help reach your personal objectives and plan for how your assets can help you get there. Are you saving to buy a house? Do you have properties with rental income? Are you saving for your teen’s college? Financial advising means we see you frequently; it’s an ongoing process. Your financial plan could include income tax planning, entity structure and selection, 1031 exchange analysis, and estate planning, our specialties.
