Crypto Expert Advisor
We’re not just CPAs, we’re holders and traders of Crypto assets. Crypto assets are here to stay, so it comes as no surprise that the IRS has taken note. The IRS has transitioned the virtual currency question from Schedule 1 to page 1 of Form 1040, emphasizing to the approximate 14% of U.S. taxpayers who own crypto assets, the importance of accurately reporting their crypto income.
We serve as your trusted advisors by informing, educating, and helping you navigate the new IRS guidance, while accurately reporting crypto income and ensuring compliance. Now more than ever, with the IRS’s increased scrutiny of crypto asset reporting it’s critical to properly plan for capital gains, reporting reward tokens as other income and finding an advisor that is not only a tax expert but a believer in the value of crypto.

We are buy and hold real estate investors ourselves and we bring that knowledge to you as you consider converting a personal residence to a business use rental property or adding that second or third income property to your portfolio. Some critical mistakes we often see is not depreciating your property or depreciating too much value and not capturing all your allowable deductions.
The US Tax Code favors real estate investors so it’s imperative you work with an advisor and not a once a year preparer who’s just plugging numbers and not considering your wholistic financial picture. We’ll help you in the following way…
- Calculate and depreciate building and land values
- Are you a real estate investor or business owner?
- Using 100% bonus depreciation to your advantage
- Expenditure analysis as a repair or improvement
- Exit strategies and tax planning when selling
