Tax Consulting and Compliance

Tax compliance, including the preparation and filing of your tax return, is often the first service people associate with accounting. And while it is a key part of what we do, much of the value we provide is in tax planning. Successful tax planning requires a deep knowledge of tax law and an equally in-depth knowledge of your business, including your operations, history, goals, and challenges. We are well versed in real estate transactions, business sales/acquisitions, international tax law, estate and trust planning, and more.

We know we do our best work when we develop long-term relationships with clients. This means we are seen as a trusted member of your team, teams remain consistent, you receive ongoing communication from us, and you have direct access to the Kernutt Stokes partner with whom you work.

We make it our priority to stay current on business issues and tax legislation in Oregon, including on the state, county, and local levels, as well as federal legislation and international issues. We will proactively reach out to you with new information that could affect your business. And, as an active member of BDO Alliance, one of Top 10 largest accounting firms in the U.S., we have access to a vast network of CPAs across the country to provide input on particularly complex or unique tax situations.

At Kernutt Stokes, it’s not about the transaction of your taxes; it’s about what’s best for you and your business.
