We specialize in income tax preparation and planning for individuals and small businesses, as well as offer IRS audit representation for our clients. All aspects of a client’s financial life are driven by the income tax return, and Federal and State income taxes are Back River’s strength. Tax planning consultations are recommended to small businesses on an annual basis or when changes arise. Back River Financial Group is an advocate for a proactive approach to income taxes.
We have years of experience helping Maine’s hardworking commercial fisherman, and those in the trades save money and stay compliant with their taxes. Maine’s commercial fisherman have come to know Back River Financial Group as the premier tax preparer in Maine. We credit this reputation to decades of research and experience meeting their specific needs.
Our process is a little different than most firms, where you never know who is working on your return or when it will be completed. At Back River, we realize that our relationship with our client is paramount, so we have developed a process that accentuates this relationship.
When you meet with one of our professionals, we prepare the return with you during our meeting to further increase efficiency. By doing this, you’re involved in the process. We get all of our questions answered so nothing gets missed, and you feel comfortable knowing what went into it. At the end of your appointment, you walk away with your completed return, and you save money because it was completed in one session with one professional.
Our professionals have over 25 years experience preparing tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, and any other entities with tax-reporting requirements. Unlike CPA’s and attorneys, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, our accountants are Enrolled Agents (EA’s). EA’s are federally authorized tax practitioners who have demonstrated technical competence in tax law, and are the only taxpayer representatives licensed to practice by the United States government.
All EA’s specialize in taxation and are required by the federal government to maintain their professional skills with continuing professional education. Only EA’s, CPA’s, and attorneys may represent taxpayers without limitation before the IRS. We are ready to help you navigate complex tax codes to make sure you are paying no more than necessary.
