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.

“After 20 years of using the same accountant, I had HORNE review my return. I was very impressed with the amount of time they invested and the 7-figure difference in the tax due with my return.”
