Saint Charles, IL
If there’s one thing most people agree on, it’s that the IRS can be incredibly intimidating. The IRS has more effective collection tools than any other creditor. This typically results in many Americans, especially business owners, finding themselves subject to IRS liens and levies. That’s where Lewis & Associates Tax Planning Inc. (LATP) comes in. The staff at LATP, located in Saint Charles, Illinois, has a combined average of over 30 years of experience in all IRS matters. LATP offers clients intensive support and guidance. Over the years, LATP has provided the necessary aid to help clients navigate through the tough IRS debt process. Some of the services offered include lien discharges, withdrawals & subordination, affordable payment plans, offers in compromise (which have reduced tax liabilities anywhere from 15% – 50% for clients), and securing protection from IRS collection action for innocent spouses.
Mr. E. Pete Lewis founded LATP in 2008 after spending 30 years working in tax management positions for Chicago-area firms. Mr. Lewis is a Certified Public Accountant in the state of Illinois and an Enrolled Agent Admitted to Practice Before the IRS. Mr. Lewis has also been an Adjunct Professor of accounting, tax, and finance at DePaul University’s School of Continuing & Professional Services and Chairperson of the Accounting and Finance Department at the University of Phoenix Business School between 2009 and 2018.
Today, LATP focuses on helping entrepreneurs, trustees, and beneficiaries of trusts and estates with tax planning, compliance, IRS debt relief, business valuations, and IRS audits.
“Our purpose is to help business owners find tax savings so they can focus on what they do best,” said Mr. Lewis. “Business owners have enough stress trying to manage their finances. They don’t need additional tax headaches.”
The team at LATP proudly delivers a wide range of services to help businesses and individuals pay no more tax than necessary. LATP offers white-glove services from business valuations to tax planning. To accomplish this task, the LATP team spends a lot of time getting to know their clients and their business.
One primary service offered by LATP is IRS debt relief. “LATP is proud to serve our clients when they have to deal with the IRS. Whether they need support during an IRS audit or they owe the IRS more than they can afford, we provide the support needed.”
For most entrepreneurs, taxes are one of the most overwhelming aspects of their business. It is important for business owners to keep tabs on allowable deductions while adhering to accepted tax practices and laws. This can require a significant amount of time and energy. And if a business is selected for an audit it can be a daunting experience. That is why the LATP team of skilled tax and accounting professionals takes pride in representing business owners in IRS audit and appeal cases.
When it comes to your tax planning needs, it’s important to find a trusted professional who can offer optimal tax solutions. Feel free to reach out to the professionals at LATP to assist you.
