If you’re looking for a firm that will focus on your individual needs, and always treat you like a client who matters, look no further. Our firm is large enough to offer a full range of professional services, but small enough to give you the individual attention that you deserve.
We will thoroughly and conscientiously study your personal situation, and tailor our advice to your specific needs.
Tax Preparation & Planning
Effective tax preparation and planning can help you to minimize your future tax liability. We can help you proactively manage both your personal and your business tax issues, including understanding how upcoming business opportunities impact your tax status and vice versa. Not all tax planning opportunities are readily apparent. By having us on your team, you are more likely to benefit from those opportunities. We understand how the latest federal, state and local tax legislation and other developments affect you and your business and we are constantly identifying new ways to reduce federal, state or local tax liabilities.
We are an authorized IRS E-File provider and file all Federal and State Tax Returns electronically at no extra charge. This means that in most cases you receive your refund checks in 10-14 days and have the option of having your refund check directly deposited into a checking or savings account.
Federal Refund Transfer (RT)*
The Refund Transfer (RT) is a quick and cost effective method for your client to receive their federal tax refund. The federal tax refund is usually available within 7-14 days from the time the client’s tax return is electronically filed. When the IRS deposits your client’s refund with SBBT, SBBT deducts all applicable fees from the refund amount and disburses the balance of the refund to your client.
State Refund Transfer (SRT)*
The SRT is similar to the Federal RT whereupon the client requests the state taxing authority to deposit the client’s state refund with SBBT. When the state refund is received by SBBT, SBBT will deduct all applicable fees from the state refund and disburse the balance of the refund to your client using the same disbursement method the client selected to receive the RT proceeds.
*Subject to bank and processing fee.
Small Business Tax Preparation
Getting a jump on your tax obligations and doing some early tax planning and preparation will put you in front of the game and in a good position when reporting time comes around. Sole-Proprietors or single member LLC’s can tax advantage of many tax strategies at the end of the tax year.
If your business does not currently have accounting staff or if your business is outgrowing its current bookkeeping system, we can provide comprehensive bookkeeping and write-up services to ensure the smooth operation of the financial side of your business.

Business Entity Selection
The business entity—LLP, LLC, sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc.— that you select for your business has enormous financial and tax implications. It is important that you make the right decision. We can explain each choice and its implications. As your business grows and changes, the type of business entity you choose may need to change also.
Buying or Selling a Business
Few business decisions are more important, complex and potentially business altering than a buy or sell decision. When you are ready to sell your business, we can provide support at every step, including valuing the business, vetting potential buyers, and supporting due diligence. If a buying opportunity presents itself, we can help by providing valuation services, developing negotiation and financing strategies, and managing the due diligence process.

Non-Profits and Tax Exempt Organizations

We will provide you with sound advice in organizing and starting your tax exempt organization and will navigate the complexity of IRS and state law. We can keep up with all the paperwork while you focus on fundraising, networking, and growing your organization.
Political Activity by Exempt Organizations
Generally traditional charities may not engage in political election activities under IRS regulations. Associations and other types of nonprofits can and do frequently sponsor PACs and engage in other forms of political campaign and issue communications. We will advise you of the limitations on political and election activities, requirement for reporting activities to IRS, FEC, and state agencies and assist with the proper formation of any PAC or subsidiary organization along with filing the proper disclosures.
Political Campaign Finance Reporting and Consulting
Federal and State laws and regulations are constantly changing in the area of political campaigns and election activities. We assist in the formation of candidate committees, CCEs, PACs, and SuperPACs. We advise and assist clients with candidate and committee campaign finance disclosure reporting, regulatory inquiries, and in some cases enforcement proceedings. We also formulate campaign strategies for candidates, ballot issues, and legislation.
