SAPL annually prepares many tax returns for both individuals and other entities. In addition to our tax preparation services, we provide compliance and assurance, planning and consulting services including assisting in tax audit in relation to federal, state and local tax issues.
Our goal is to provide you with recommendations and strategies within the law’s guidelines to help build your net worth and reduce your tax burden..
- Tax Preparation:
Preparing your own income tax return can be a task that leaves you with more questions than answers. 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.
- Books a Mess? No Problem!
If you own a small business and haven’t kept up your bookkeeping, don’t worry. We can help you. We’ll prepare your bookkeeping for the year, prepare your income tax return (Personal or corporate). Then we’ll help you set up an easy system that allows you to keep your books in tip-top shape next year.

- Tax Planning
Planning is the key to successfully and legally reducing your tax liability. We go beyond tax compliance and proactively recommend 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. Remember, we work for you not for the FIRS/SIRS. Many of our clients save many times the fee in reduced tax liability through careful planning and legitimate tax strategies.
- Tax Audit Representation
Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of people more than receiving a Tax Audit letter in the mail. Audits take significant time away from your business and family, requiring you to gather mounds of records substantiating each and every item reported on your tax return and develop a comprehensive understanding of tax law.
The Tax Authorities will leave no stone unturned in its mission to determine the accuracy of your tax return. If you don’t comply with the Auditors’ wishes, the FIRS/SIRS will recalculate your tax and send you home with a hefty tax bill as your parting gift.
Many taxpayers decide to handle tax audit themselves, and discover they may have been “penny wise,” avoiding a representative’s fee, but “pound foolish,” because they received a substantial bill for a significant tax deficiency.
You see, FIRS/SIRS Tax Auditors are trained to extract more information from you than you have a legal obligation to provide. FIRS/SIRS Auditors know that most people fear them and are ignorant of their rights. As a result, they know they can use that fear and ignorance to their advantage.
Rarely do our clients even have to talk with the FIRS/SIRS. We handle it all for you so that you need not take time off your business or job to handle the bureaucracy and paperwork of the FIRS/SIRS. No lost wages or business. You simply forward notification of an audit to us and we handle it from A to Z.
If you’ve received an audit notice from the FIRS/SIRS, please fill out the form on our ‘contact us’ page for further discussion with our tax specialist.
