Our Services

Peace on Earth is HIS Promise . . . . Tax Peace of Mind is OURS.

Onsites In Person Or By Remote Control

We have launched a new legal/financial service for churches and nonprofit organization. In addition to our standard Onsite Review, we have created a "Remote Onsite" designed to allow my office to conduct a full "onsite" computer to computer. The Remote Onsite, with your office's permission, allows my office to access your office's computer, share files, review and update minutes, review financial statements, highlight and address issues.

Minister's Tax Solution Program

As an ordained minister and an attorney (with a concentration in Tax and Estate Planning), I know how hard it is for ministers to find qualified, competent and trustworthy tax advice and services. That is why I developed the Minster's Tax Solution Program. Ministers and Churches are our only priority. Our goal is to provide you with prompt and accurate service. As a law firm we guarantee accurate tax preparation, client confidentiality and aggressive client representation.

Compensation Strategies

As a part of the tax preparation process, my tax service identifies compensation issues. The tax questionnaire allows my office to identify unused or under utilized tax strategies. In too many instances, Ministers are not receiving the full benefit available to them under the Tax Code.
