Looking for consulting services for an ultra-high-net-worth individual or family? DiSanto, Priest & Co. takes a holistic, team-oriented approach that includes legal and financial advisors. We specialize in several tax planning services, from proactively managing income tax liabilities to collaborating with attorneys and trusted advisors to structure and execute asset transfers.

At DiSanto Priest we take a holistic integrated approach to the entire planning process.  Estate planning is integrated with business succession planning, family planning, and tax planning.

By combining the talents of our tax team, our consulting team, our affiliates at Bentley Wealth Advisors, LLC and local estate and family law attorneys, we provide you with guidance through the entire process.

Each plan is unique and designed to mitigate taxes where applicable and most importantly ensure the orderly transfer and protection of your wealth to your heirs.  Left unattended, your Estate could be subject to public probate, unintended taxes, large professional fees and uncertainty about your intentions.

Sound tax planning is integral to any tax strategy.  Through the planning process, we are able to help mitigate, defer or even eliminate your taxes by identifying opportunities for all tax deductions and credits available.  Planning can also reduce the risk of penalties by setting a course for timely payment of taxes and meeting all filing deadlines with less stress.  The tax law is complicated, with risks and opportunities around every bend.  We take a “no surprises” approach to planning.

We are available to assist with the following:

  • Yearly projections
  • Maximize deductions
  • Withholding adjustments
  • Utilize credits
  • Estimated tax payments
  • Retirement plan solutions
  • Multi-state issues
  • Capital gains and losses

The key to business growth is innovation. Innovation that requires an investment of scarce resources in product development activities that are often expensive and high-risk.

Recognizing the importance of such investment, the research tax credit provides companies and/or their owners with a dollar-for-dollar reduction of a company’s tax liability.

Research tax credits are based on a taxpayer’s expenditures for activities that constitute qualified research as defined by statute. Significant tax benefits can be achieved through the credit; however, to successfully benefit, we recognize the importance of a well documented, supportable study. The client must have systems in place that not only capture the costs relative to the credit but also provide credible substantiation for the credit and resultant study.

We Help You

With assistance from professionals from DiSanto, Priest & Co., the exploration and implementation of a program that allows the taxpayer to effectively capture these expenditures can be quite rewarding, allowing you to reinvest the tax savings in your business.

We have decades of experience helping clients deal with Federal and State tax resolutions.  Taxes come in all shapes and sizes from Federal, State and Local income tax, to sales and payroll taxes to estate and trust taxes.  If you receive a notice of any type we will work with you through resolution.  We also work with many local and national tax attorneys should your matter go to appeal or even tax court.

We are able to assist with the following:

  • Federal and State tax audit representation
  • Unfiled returns
  • Installment agreements
  • Sales and use tax assessments
  • Offers in compromise
  • Penalty abatement
There is no substitute for the professional preparation of your taxes.  Even the simplest of returns can be confusing with all of the deductions and credits available in the federal tax code.  State tax law can be equally confusing especially if you work or own a business that operates in multiple states. Our goal is to help you file timely and accurate returns taking full advantage of all tax saving possibilities.  We invest in our systems and people to ensure your experience is professional and personal.

We can assist in the preparation of the following:

  • Corporate Entities
  • Partnerships
  • Subchapter S Corporations
  • Limited Liability Companies
  • Personal Income Estates
  • Trusts
  • Gift taxes

Succession planning should be a priority for any business, especially a family business. More than seventy percent of family-owned businesses fail to survive the transition to the second generation.   Developing and implementing a well-designed succession plan is essential to the survival of a family business from one generation to the next or successfully selling your business for its maximum value.
