To avoid the unexpected, Sweeney Conrad approaches taxes proactively, identifying key opportunities that minimize your present and future tax liabilities. We stay up-to-date on new tax laws and legislation, and communicate regularly with you throughout the year — not just on a quarterly basis or in preparation for April 15th.
