Tax Planning and Compliance

Planning to Help Limit your Current and Future Tax Liabilities

WellsColeman's expertise in tax law planning truly sets our tax services apart as we strive to limit both current and future tax liabilities for our clients. We'll work with you to develop a comprehensive strategy and action plan based on your business or individual needs, helping you achieve the best results.

Transactional Planning and Tax Reduction

Tax consequences should be evaluated as part of the economic analysis of any significant prospective transaction. Year-end tax planning is the most common form of periodic planning. It includes a review of year-to-date transactions, tax-planning strategies for the remainder of the year, computation of projected tax liabilities, and preliminary planning for future transactions.


"The avoidance of taxes is the only intellectual pursuit that carries any reward."

-John Maynard Keynes

Comprehensive tax planning can guide decisions

Tax Savings

Our involvement in shaping these transactions may substantially reduce your income tax liability. In addition, analysis of new tax legislation can provide further opportunities for tax savings.

Taxpayer Representation

Sometimes our clients must deal directly with the Internal Revenue Service or other taxing authority. It may be to request a ruling for a prospective transaction, respond to a tax notice, negotiate an installment payment of past due taxes, or undergo a tax audit. We have the experience and resources to work with the appropriate authorities in the best interests of our clients.
