Personal Tax Services

We know that personal taxes are confusing and complex. Our job is to make it simple and help you understand what you can do to create a unique financial plan that will direct you towards your long term goals. As a DZH Phillips client, we’ll work with you to craft your unique financial plan to address the tax and compliance requirements of your personal and business circumstances, including:

  • Trust Tax Compliance and Planning
  • Estates, Trusts, and Gift Planning
  • High Net Worth Income Tax
  • Charitable Giving
  • Family Limited Partnership Taxation
  • Compliance and Planning
  • International Tax Planning

We start with an in-depth interview to identify your personal and financial goals. We then evaluate and explain the tax implications of various facets of your income and expenses, including:

  • Salary and compensation
  • Real estate income
  • Investments
  • Sale or purchase of assets
  • Gifts and inheritances
  • Flow-through business income

In addition to completing your tax return, associated schedules, accompanying disclosures, and appropriate quarterly estimates for the following year, we’ll look at ways to:

  • Lower your taxable income
  • Increase your deductions
  • Identify new or underutilized tax credits
  • Illuminate the tax liabilities on current or future income and investments
  • Review relevant exemptions, deductions, credits, rebates, and allowances

At DZH Phillips, we advocate a proactive approach to planning. Our goal is to help minimize your tax burden and provide you with deeper financial stability by fostering your long-term goals. We believe that you should have the tools you need to make important decisions now—choices that will impact your financial outlook today and in the long term.
