Tax Preparation Services for Businesses and Individuals

Nearly anyone can call themselves a tax preparer regardless of experience. As complex as our tax laws are, know that at Harper, Rains, Knight & Company, your taxes will be handled by CPAs with years of experience who specialize in taxation and can handle your specific situation no matter its complexities.

No one likes to pay taxes, so one of our top priorities is to minimize your tax burden through comprehensive tax planning. Whether you are a business or individual, our goal is to provide you with the attention and guidance you deserve at a reasonable and fair rate.

HRK provides a wide range of tax services:

Individual Tax Preparation and Planning

HRK provides accurate preparation of your personal income taxes at fair rates, year-round availability to assist you with your ever-changing situation, and a “no-surprise” approach to tax preparation. By effectively planning, we work to alleviate the stresses of individual taxes. Our goal is always for you to know what to expect before filing.

Business Tax Services

HRK is experienced in preparation of any type of business return: C-Corp, S-Corp, LLC, Partnership (General or Limited). Our planning and consulting services ensure that we maintain accuracy and minimize unnecessary tax costs throughout the year.

Trust Tax Services

We have seen and worked with a wide variety of trusts and have established professional relationships with many of the corporate trustees in the area. No matter the complexities of your trust, we can help advise your trustee on the tax implications. We prepare your estate or trust income tax return (form 1041). 

Estate and Gift Taxes

One of the most difficult times for a family is dealing with the death of a loved one. A poorly planned estate can amplify this difficulty. We strive to work with our clients to develop a comprehensive estate plan to ease this difficult time and to minimize all burdens on the beneficiaries of your estate whether they are tax related or not. We prepare estate and gift tax returns (Forms 706/709).

Employee Benefit Plans

We consult and prepare employee benefit plan tax returns (Form 5500).

Representation before the IRS or State Taxing Authorities

Navigating the headache of an IRS or state audit or review doesn’t have to be an inconvenience.  With experienced representation from the professionals at HRK, we can help you through the difficulties of an audit and mitigate the triggers causing such in the future. We provide experienced consultations and communication with relevant taxing authorities related to inquiries, reviews, audits and negotiations.
