Tax Planning

Without proper planning, businesses and individuals may pay more in taxes than is necessary.  With the assistance of experienced tax professionals considering appropriate planning options, they can retain more of the money they have earned or inherited.  

Schenck, Price, Smith & King’s Tax Planning practice group handles a wide range of business and personal federal, state and local tax matters.  We advise owners and operators of start-up ventures, closely held businesses and other businesses on the relative tax benefits of structuring business enterprises through means including limited liability companies, limited liability partnerships, S corporations, C corporations and joint ventures.  Care must be taken to properly structure ventures with taxation issues in mind. Decisions made at the outset of any transaction will affect not only incurred taxation during the venture, but also the heirs of the founder upon sale and/or transference of the business.  For decades, our experienced Tax team has provided comprehensive tax planning and advice to large and small businesses, as well as individuals.

Clients turn to Schenck, Price, Smith & King’s Tax Planning practice group for help in tax planning and the execution of the orderly transition and disposition of assets during their lifetimes and beyond so as to minimize the tax burden on their families and beneficiaries. We have handled numerous United States and New Jersey Tax Court matters.

Working with our Nonprofit Organizations practice, we advise clients on obtaining and maintaining tax-exempt status, treatment of unrelated business taxable income, fundraising issues and compliance with federal and state disclosure rules.
