Begin by concentrating on personal tax return analysis including reviewing "true" cash flow derived from the 1040 federal tax return (including the various schedules and K-1 forms).

Then focus on the analysis of various business tax returns, including the LLC and S and C corp structure; analyze business federal tax returns; and prepare cash flows for these entities. This section will also assess the company's risk factors using business tax returns and review real estate tax issues; retirement plans and HSAs; estate planning techniques; and year-end tax strategies.
