Tax Planning and Preparation
The key to achieving your financial objectives is through the development, implementation, and diligent monitoring of your own personal financial plan. Barry recognizes that all clients' financial situations and aspirations are unique.  As such the financial planning process begins with a rich discussion to define and clarify your specific financial goals and concerns. 

Next, financial data describing your current financial situation is gathered and thoroughly analyzed.  This is done through a holistic approach by reviewing all aspects of your financial situation, e.g., cash flow, debt, insurance, investments, retirement plans, tax obligations, and estate planning documentation, etc.  The result of this review is a "Gap Analysis"  indicating where you stand in relation to your financial goals.  Barry will then formulate recommendations and an action plan providing you a road-map to achieve your financial objectives. 

Barry can assist you in the implementation of your financial plan by utilizing his investment management and tax preparation services described below.

Finally, Barry will monitor and periodically update your plan as necessary to ensure it remains relevant and effective in light of changes in the economy, tax laws, and your own personal circumstances.

Financial consultations are billed at $250 per hour.  

Fees for an initial comprehensive financial plan range from $1500 to $5000 and are based on the complexity of your situation.
