  • unrelated business income tax planning
  • respond to tax notices
  • representation before IRS and state examiners


HBLA professionally prepares annual Federal and state income tax returns and, where appropriate, amended returns, claims for refund, and accounting method or period change requests. With the complexity and the constantly changing nature of the tax law, this task has become much more involved and time consuming and, therefore, should not be undervalued.


We couple the annual return preparation with inquiries, observations and suggestions about items that emerge during the return preparation process. For many clients, a projection of the next year’s tax is advisable in the latter part of each year. Most clients call on us during the year to review specific issues or concerns. The relationship and file information developed in doing the annual tax return provides an information resource that can create a basis for rendering reliable advice. We strive to be proactive in this area of our practice.
