Our primary objective is to minimize a client’s overall tax burden whenever and wherever legally possible. Our tax preparation services are directed primarily toward constructive tax planning beginning early in the year and maintaining close contact with our clients throughout the year.
Advance planning to minimize future taxes includes advice on tax effects of proposed transactions, corporate reorganization, and assistance in such tax-oriented areas as executive compensation, pension plans and other similar continuing services. We also have experience in providing assistance and advice in negotiations with taxing authorities.
We have developed a large base of tax clients whose size and complexity rival that of firms many times our size. We believe our success is due in large part to an added emphasis on strategic tax planning.

Tax Preparation Case Study
Texas Margin Tax
We were referred to MeredithCPAs through a friend who raved about them. We really didn’t want to go through the hassle of working with someone new because our old CPA had been with us for over 10 years. Our friend mentioned they do free second opinions, and we did feel like we were paying too much taxes for our company so we went for our hour consultation.
We were blown away when we met with Karen. She is a genuinely caring person who has setup a well oiled company from scratch. Before we even got into the tax nitty gritty, we were complaining about being disorganized, so she walked us around their office to show us some of the simple yet highly effective ways that her employees get things done. They also have an IT group called Team Logic who helps us with technical IT issues.
The greatest thing about our visit is that now we are paying 5k less in taxes to the TX Comptroller every year. That adds up fast! During our tax preparation meeting, Karen explained that Texas recently implemented a new margin tax that has been hurting small business owners because we are taxed on gross revenue instead of net. So we could have an overall loss in the company but still owe TX money! Her team at M&A have studied the new margin tax so much that they found us ways to reduce the tax that our old CPA had no idea about. We immediately switched over to her and haven’t looked back.
