Tax Compliance & Planning

We care about your success.

At HORNE, we offer a courtesy tax review of prior year filings to identify missed opportunities. We strive to thoroughly understand your situation in order to make the best recommendations on a go-forward basis. 

The majority of business decisions have tax implications; whether it’s an acquisition, updating brand standards or exiting the business, understanding the tax ramifications can have a profound impact on your bottom-line results.

Our tax team helps our clients see beyond preparation and compliance. We work closely with you to ensure that you weave the tax implications into your decision making. Our Tax Compliance & Planning Solutions can help with mandatory filings and reporting to giving you a strategic edge.

“one of the greatest things about having horne part of my team is i’m never “in the dark” with income taxes. before, i never knew what to expect until it was time to file and pay. now, i’m always aware in advance and know why.”
