Our Philosophy

Our team is committed to helping you understand, correctly qualify for, and claim tax savings opportunities arising from the pandemic (such as the Employee Retention Credit or ERC) and your investments in employees, property, R&D, and sustainability. There are a lot of opportunities in the tax credit space, and our team of knowledgeable professionals with backgrounds in Law, Tax, Finance, and Economics are here to support you.

With offices in Dallas, TX, and Washington, D.C., we're connected to what's happening in industry and on the Hill.

We've helped hundreds of employers across numerous industries file ERC claims. We've also reviewed and corrected ERC claims that were incorrectly filed by other advisors, securing significant additional savings in the process.

Unlike other advisors who solely offer ERC services, our experience is founded in years of practice with other similar wage-based credits. We continuously leverage this experience to provide industry-leading services and maximize tax savings potential for our clients.

We operate on a shared success fee model – you don't owe us anything unless we identify savings. We're committed to helping identify tax savings for you, but – as experienced tax credit professionals – we know that not every business qualifies for every program and some programs just aren't a good fit for everyone.

You can trust us to gather all the facts, estimate potential value, identify risks, defend our work, and give you straight answers, even if that means passing on a potential project. We strive to be a long-term, trusted tax credits advisor and look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
