Tax Problems

Tax Concept - Small Business Services in Oakdale, MN

Tax Representation

You have an IRS problem…received a letter…call me….we need to deal with it NOW!!!

Ruth Ann has over 17 years experience of representing clients, like You, before the IRS...five years at a law firm and over 12 years at RAMPA.

Her philosophy is to work with the client as a team. You will know what is happening with your account with the IRS. She will keep you informed and alert to changes in the strategy, time lines, and deadlines.

Offer in Compromise

Her key successes have been in the Offer in Compromise area. Usually a few meetings and analysis are required before the decision to file an offer. If an offer is not the right direction at the time, other options will be explored. Your success with the government entity – federal or state of MN is the driving force.

IRS Exams (Audits)

Another area of success has been representing clients – businesses and individuals - during prior year examinations. She will work with you to organize all of the documents of the audited return. “I think of them as giant puzzles…putting all the pieces together for a successful audit.” She has represented businesses and individuals in various tax audits. A few examples of results are a “no change audit” and an IRS assessment of $19,000 turning into a refund for the taxpayer.

Tax Preparation:

Current Year Taxes

The current year individual income tax is offered at a discounted packet price (filed by October 15th) that includes Form 1040, Schedule A, State return, efiling, phone calls and a meeting to discuss the final return before signing. Additional forms are billed by the form or an hourly rate. Our firm is prepared to file any state required forms. Call for more information.

The business tax returns our firm files are Corporations, S Corporations, Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies, Sole Proprietors, and Nonprofits. We will prepare any annual filing registration and quarterly and annual payroll forms (efiled) and any basis schedules for shareholders, partners, or members.

Business Consulting

Business Start-up

Are you thinking of starting a business? Are you wondering what type of business entity to form? …LLC? S Corporation? Partnership? Sole Proprietor? or a Corporation?

Our firm will discuss the tax and accounting needs for each business type to help you decide. Once you understand the tax obligations then we suggest you visit an attorney to set up your business entity. The third person on your team besides the Certified Public Accountant and Attorney should be your bank/banker to help you set up your business accounts. You are on the road to a successful business.

Record Keeping

The next step is your record keeping. Our firm has clients using QuickBooks and Peach Tree Accounting Programs. We can help you set up an in-house accounting system or we process your accounting for you. We can also help set up or process your payroll. Ruth Ann is a QuickBooks Pro-Adviser. If you need weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual accounting or payroll help, we are here. Just let us know your needs.
