Sales Tax Services
There are several sales tax traps awaiting to cause businesses unnecessary taxes, interest and penalties. Our experienced team can help you navigate the complex sales tax regulations and minimize the additional unnecessary costs from these taxes.
Audits, Reviews and Compilations
An audit provides the highest level of assurance. An audit is a methodical review and objective examination of the financial statements, including the verification of specific information as determined by the auditor or as established by general practice. You get the highest level of assurance because we go outside your company to obtain more information.
A Review is less extensive than an audit, but more involved than a compilation. A review engagement consists primarily of analytical procedures we apply to the financial statements, and various inquiries we make of your company’s management team. If the financial statements or supporting information appear inconsistent or otherwise questionable, we may need to perform additional procedures.
A Compilation is the lowest level of assurance. In compiling financial statements for a client, we present information that is the “representation of management” and expresses no opinion or assurance on the statements. Compilations don’t require inquiries of management or analytical procedures. Instead, we rely on our knowledge of accounting principles and a general understanding of your business.
What happens if your accountant makes a mistake that could incur penalties or interest? Suppose the IRS or state tax authorities audit you? What if you’re not satisfied with the way your return was prepared? Our audit insurance allows you to receive skilled representation before the taxing authorities if we ever make a mistake on your taxes without it costing you a dime. Most important, you’ll enjoy total peace of mind knowing that you never EVER have to deal with the IRS alone.
Tax Reminder Service

Through our “Tax Reminder Service, we will make sure you send us all the relevant information for us to prepare your tax filings timely. No more headaches of remembering dates and deadlines. No more penalties and interest due to late filings. You can now focus on what you do best; let us worry about tax deadlines.
Employee Benefits Solutions

Tax Resolution Services

Cash Flow Management
A cash crisis can be emotionally devastating for your business. If you’ve ever had to beg, borrow and steal to cover tomorrows payroll you know what I mean.
The starting point for avoiding a cash crisis is allowing us to develop a cash flow projection for you. Straight Talk CPAs’ can help you develop both short-term (weekly, monthly) cash flow projections to help you manage daily cash, and long-term (annual, 3-5 year) cash flow projections to help you develop the necessary capital strategy to meet your business needs.
One of the most important things to a business owner is the value of their business. The valuation you get for your business can make or break a proposition.
Whether you’re negotiating a merger, considering new shareholders, attempting to resolve disputes associated with liability, shareholder equity, estate planning or marital dissolution, objective valuation can make the difference between loss or gain, success or failure.
Business valuation is not an exact science. It’s based on judgment, experience and relevant information.
Our approach is to intimately know your business in order to understand what constitutes its value. We work closely with you and the business valuation expert to analyze your operations and historical financial data. Our knowledge of your business enables us to provide a well-reasoned, fully documented and defensible valuation opinion.
As uncomfortable as it seems, succession planning should be a priority for any family business. Developing and implementing a well-designed succession plan is essential to the survival of a family business from one generation to the next.
At Straight Talk CPAs’, we’ll help you figure out things such as: Are you going to pass the business on to your family or sell it to a third party? And Who’s going to run the business when you’re gone?
The tax burden when transitioning a family business can be significant. The challenge is that a family business is not generally a liquid asset, but taxes are typically due when ownership is transferred. We’ll help you minimize the tax bite.

If you’re starting a new not-for-profit organization we can help you prepare your organization’s 501 (c)(3) application for tax-exempt status.
