Private Client Tax
Individuals deal with taxes every year, but the degree to which you plan ahead can significantly affect your tax liability.
Personal Tax Consultants Deliver Customized Tax Strategies
Paying income taxes is a certainty in life, but you can manage the process better by having appropriate plans in place. Whether your personal tax challenge is cash flow planning, long-term wealth, or financial planning, it’s important for you and your family to have short- and long-term financial goals. In order to reach those goals, you need a comprehensive plan designed around your specific tax situation.
Flexible tax strategies and customized plans from Sikich’s personal tax consultants help high-wealth individuals minimize their tax exposure and position themselves for financial success. Our consultants coordinate all aspects of your overall financial plan and individual tax strategy for comprehensive solutions that help you meet your goals.
Any tax advisor can plug your numbers into a system and generate a one-size fits all tax plan. But those systems can’t provide you with creative, comprehensive consulting and planning advice based on your unique needs and goals. At Sikich, we take into consideration all of your specific financial, personal, and economic variables, then we work to create a plan that is tailored to the current and future needs of you and your family.

As a business owner, you likely face a number of daily challenges, but what about your company’s future? How will you set the company up for continued success? It’s a delicate topic, but succession planning is vital to the continued success of your company. Without having a succession plan in place, your business is at risk of losing everything that you worked so hard to achieve. Think about the following questions:
- Are you considering retiring in the near future?
- Do you wonder how you will groom a successor?
- Is passing your company on to your children unlikely?
- Does succession planning seem overwhelming, and have you even begun preparing?
If you answered Yes to any of those questions, it’s time to contact Sikich.
Passing your business on may be the biggest financial event of your life – so don’t wait. Commit to succession planning and let Sikich do the work for you. You will receive a customized road map that will help you to maximize the amount of money received during a sale or transfer and minimize taxes at the same time.
