Tax Avoidance

"That the right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted."

U.S. Supreme Court (Gregory v. Helvering 293 U.S. 465)

We are very aggressive in applying the principle that tax avoidance is indeed legal. Whether it is for businesses or individuals, we employ every legal tax deduction or tax credit possible for our clients.

Tax laws change every day, and there are many changes that Congress is currently proposing. While there are many who feel the current tax laws are unfair, we have no choice but to follow the law until it is changed. Many tax deductions and legal loopholes exist that both businesses and individuals can use to limit, or avoid, the payment of income tax. Several of these legal ways to avoid taxes are not known to the general public.

Rhoden CPA Firm has over 50 years of specializing in taxation. We are committed to working hand in hand with our clients to reduce their income taxes to the minimum permitted by law. All clients receive professional guidance in reducing future taxes as well as limiting their current tax.

Accounting Services

While each business has its own needs, there are three basic reasons for using an independent accounting service. These reasons are:

  1. To determine the financial condition of the business.
  2. To assure that all required governmental filings are met and tax returns are correctly filed on time.
  3. To save tax dollars.

The Rhoden CPA Firm philosophy in providing these needs is:

  1. To help our clients establish internal controls and a record keeping system that retains all needed information and uses a minimum of their time. It is most important in today's world to have a good internal control system. This system can be as simple, or complex, as fits the client's particular business. For those clients that use a computer to maintain their records, we offer special training in QuickBooks® or Peachtree® software.
  2. Periodically, we obtain our clients bookkeeping records. From this data we prepare any sales, payroll or other tax returns that are due. After making the necessary adjustments to the client data, we prepare financial statements. These statements give a complete picture of the clients' financial position and are prepared in such a manner to be easily understood.
  3. We are very aggressive in tax planning and helping our clients limit their tax liability. From our clients' financial information, we prepare tax planning modules and develop tax saving strategies. There are many steps than can be taken to save taxes, and we suggest these to our clients long before the due dates of the returns.

Audit and Review Services

At Rhoden CPA Firm we provide all means of auditing and review services for both privately held businesses and not-for-profit organizations. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of our profession and comply with all qualifications promulgated by our professions state and national governing bodies. In that vein we subject the firm to a triannual review (Quality Review) by an independent Certified Public Accountant. Their report is available upon request.

While an audit or review in and of itself is a worthwhile endeavor we strive to add extra value to each engagement. We do this by using the wealth of information gathered during our testing and analytical review to help the business owner or manager more efficiently and profitably operate the business or organization. Invariably during the course of an audit or review the accountant will observe operating trends and statistical relationships that could prove to be very helpful.

At the conclusion of each engagement we not only inform management of accounting issues that come to our attention we also convey useful operating information to help management operate the business or organization more efficiently and profitably.

As with all our engagements we tell our clients to ask us the toughest question, in our opinion, that a client can ask (and should ask)....."What can I do better this year than I did last year?" "I don't know" is not an acceptable answer!

Payroll Services

Payroll preparation can be very time consuming, confusing and costly. Some businesses get into trouble, or pay outlandish penalties, for not correctly filing payroll tax returns or paying the taxes when due. In addition, determining whether a worker is an employee or independent contractor is an area where there is much confusion. An incorrect application of the laws can cost the business a tremendous amount of headaches and money.

Rhoden CPA Firm can help you establish a relationship with a reputable payroll service at a very reasonable cost. We use other payroll services because we have found that they are better suited to perform this repetitive task at much lower fees than we can, leaving us to be able to focus on the more complex aspects of your business.


  • Payroll checks are timely and accurately prepared with little effort from your accounting staff.
  • Payroll taxes are computed correctly and paid when due.
  • All payroll tax returns are correctly prepared, verified and filed on time.
  • You save both time and money.
