An example of service to our clients:
A senior citizen wanted to know how to reduce the amount of real estate tax she pays to the city she lives in. As a result of changes in her personal circumstances her income has been reduced and we prepared the paperwork for her to file with the local tax assessor in her community resulting in a $ 500 reduction in her annual real estate tax payments. Although this is not applicable to everyone if you qualify it is a real savings to you. We understand this and can help our clients with this type of filing as well. In addition to the State of CT. benefit some cities and towns also provide an additional benefit to local residents. In this particular case it was an additional $ 150 reduction in real estate tax for the year. Total real estate tax savings for this resident $ 650 in 2012.
(Update) The same savings for 2013.
Several years ago a client decided to close her business and move out of the area. We advised the client to consider selling the business and assets. She did and received money for the business, the assets and a payment to stay on with the business for a period of time for a transition. The result thousands of dollars to our client where she had initially planned on not making any money on the closing of her business. We can discuss your situation one on one with you and consider various possibilities before you make any important business or financial decision. We are not getting a fee or commission from the transaction only for our time.
