Tax Planning

Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. Mesquite Tax, LLC goes beyond tax compliance and proactively recommends tax saving strategies to maximize your after-tax income. We make it a priority to enhance our mastery of the current tax law, complex tax code, and new tax regulations by attending frequent tax seminars. Businesses and individuals pay the lowest amount of taxes allowable by law because we continually look for ways to minimize your taxes throughout the year, not just at the end of the year.

We recommend Tax Saving Strategies that help you…

  • Grow and preserve assets by keeping Uncle Sam out of your pockets.
  • Defer income so you can keep your money now and pay less taxes later.
  • Reduce taxes on your income so you keep more of what you make.
  • Reduce taxes on your estate so your family keeps more of what you’ve made.
  • Reduce taxes on your gifts so you can give more.
  • Reduce taxes on your investments so you can grow your wealth faster.
  • Reduce taxes on your retirement distributions so you can retire in style.

Here’s just a few of the Tax Saving Strategies we use…

  • Splitting income among several family members or legal entities in order to allow more of the income to be taxed in lower brackets.
  • Shifting income or expenses from one year to another in order to have them fall where it is taxed at a lower rate.
  • Deferring tax liabilities through certain investment choices such as pension plans, contributions and other similar plans.
  • Using certain investments to produce income that is tax exempt from either federal or state, or both taxing entities.
  • Finding tax deductions by structuring your money to pay for things you enjoy, such as a vacation home.

Remember, we work for you not for the IRS. Many of our clients save many times the fee in reduced tax liability through careful planning and legitimate tax strategies.




Benefits of a Qualified Tax Preparer

Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. According to a study released by the US Government’s General Accounting Office last year, most taxpayers (77% of 71 million taxpayers) believe they benefited from using a professional tax preparer. Whether we like it or not, today’s tax laws are so complicated that filing a relatively simple return can be confusing. It is just too easy to overlook deductions and credits to which you are entitled. Even if you use a computer software program there’s no substitute for the assistance of an experienced tax professional.

Here’s what you get…

Your tax return will be checked and rechecked by our computer software identifying potential problems the IRS may look at more closely and reviewing the math to limit IRS contacts. Your tax return can be filed electronically, with direct deposit so you will get a refund back quicker and more convenient. Our staff will show you how to adjust your payroll withholding to get more money back each week. We will show you potential deductions to limit your tax liability for next year. 

In many cases, we try to provide the completion of tax returns within your appointment time. If not, we'll do our best to complete the returns timely.
