It’s Tax Time!

Whoa, wait a minute here.  It is only mid-November tax time is not until April 15th or thereabouts…right.  Not necessarily!  There are tax returns for individuals, corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and trusts.  What category do you fall into?  Maybe it is more than one of those.

One thing is certain, the earlier that you gather your records together and prepare to have a top CPA roll up his sleeves and go to work for you the better.  Americans are notorious for procrastinating as it pertains to tax preparation.  Somehow, we think that the task will be postponed if we keep putting it off.  Then we find ourselves scrambling at the deadline!

Why would you put yourself through that AGAIN in 2018?  Now is a great time to reach out to Mike Mathews to make an appointment as early as possible in the new year.  Get that resolution out of the way now.  Call personal and business Las Vegas area CPA Mike Mathews for an appointment at his beautiful Regatta Drive office (702) 240-5237.

(Follow the link above for more information)

“We’re done with Halloween and, sadly, pool party season is over too, but that doesn’t mean there aren't a ton of sweet things to do in Las Vegas, including these 18 can't-miss November events that you should totally check out.” 


Financial Planning for Your Business.

As the end of the year approaches you and your partners may have bigger plans for your business in 2018.  In business, plans equal capital.  With enough working capital, you can conquer the world.  If you look at the world’s biggest moguls none of them could have attained their success without a “hand up”.

The first step in the process is preparing a financial statement so that those with the cash are attracted to your business.  Without that, you might as well hold up a sign on the street corner!  A properly prepared financial statement of your business compiles and reviews the state of your company for investment purposes.

Now, you need to find the right CPA to “crunch the numbers” so that your business is irresistible to those with money to lend.  Mike Mathews is the answer.  From his beautiful office on Regatta Drive, Mike will plan your business’ financial statement and prepare it for presentation to banks, etc.  Call Mike before the end of 2017 at (702) 240-5237.

Retirement Plans for 2018.

Maybe the new year is your big year for finally enjoying the fruits of your labor.  The new year is just weeks away and retirement may be on your mind.  It’s one thing to look forward to enjoying travel leisure.  It is another thing entirely to be financially able to do all of that unless you have stowed away millions for this exciting time of your life.

While you were accumulating a lifetime of wealth taxes were always in the back of your mind.  That WILL NOT change during retirement!  Taxes obviously must be paid on distributions from qualified retirement plans.  These plans include 401K’s, IRA’s, etc.  It takes careful planning to manage excess taxation when your income ceases.

There is even something called “discounted retirement”.  You might want to talk to a professional to get more information on this option.  Las Vegas area financial retirement expert Mike Mathews may be the answer to all of your retirement planning questions.  Why not make an appointment this fall at his beautiful Regatta Drive office by calling (702) 240-5237?
