Tax Law

The tax laws are constantly changing.  When making a big business decision, you should consult with a CPA to ensure there are no negative tax implications that will cost you more money.  In addition, when a new corporate entity is formed, the tax reasons for the entity selection are just as important as the limitation of personal liability.  Our CPAs have significant experience dealing with the issues faced by business and individuals, including working with the IRS and Rhode Island Division of Taxation.
