Brown & Brown CPAs, LLC has talented CPAs and accountants that provide individual, business and nonprofit income tax preparation, tax planning and tax estimate services from our Columbus (Upper Arlington) and Urbana, Ohio offices.  In addition to income tax preparation, we also prepare tax returns for other taxes that businesses and nonprofit organizations will often encounter.  Income tax return preparation can be a very stressful and difficult process for many businesses and individuals.  Let a CPA at Brown & Brown help improve this experience while at the same time have confidence that your income tax return will be prepared accurately and will be prepared to minimize your overall income tax burden by taking advantage of all available deductions and credits. 

 

Individual Income Taxes

Using their experience in tax preparation and our professional tax software, our accountants and CPAs can efficiently and accurately prepare your individual federal income tax return and related schedules, as well as preparing any state, school district and city income tax returns that apply to your situation.  We go through a comprehensive checklist with all clients to ensure that we pick up all tax breaks that you are allowed.  Further, we perform a free analysis of every married couple's return to determine if it is better to file jointly or separately.

 
In addition to preparing your individual income tax return, our accountants and CPAs can also assist you in a variety of other areas including tax planning and research, preparing estimated taxes, and analyzing the tax impact of potential transactions.  We can also work with you and federal, state and local tax authorities to help you resolve tax notices or delinquencies that you have outstanding.
 

Business and Nonprofit Taxes

Our accountants and CPAs are adept in the preparation of business tax schedules that are included on your individual income tax return such as a sole proprietorship on Schedule C, rental properties on Schedule E or a farm on Schedule F.  In addition we are skilled in the preparation of partnership (including LLC's), S-Corp, C-Corp, nonprofit and trust tax returns.  However, our services go beyond the preparation of your tax returns.  We work to understand your business or nonprofit organization and to help you better understand its financial and tax situation.  We will work with you as needed to help you plan from a tax perspective, including initial entity selection, estimating your taxable income and taxes, ideas to minimize your tax burden, and analyzing transactions for their tax impact.  

 
If you are in need of an audit or other accounting and bookkeeping related services for your business or nonprofit organization, we can assist you as needed.  See our Accounting Services tab for more details.
