A Holistic Approach to Your Financial Plan

Integrated Financial Planning & Tax Services Can Lower Taxes Over Time

As your career grows, so do the complexities of your taxes. Stock compensation, LTIPs, and other benefits can make it hard to know how much you owe the IRS, and online software rarely gets it right. Don't let them get the best of you. Willis Johnson & Associates’ in-house tax team can help you navigate the intricacies of executive compensation and benefits taxation. We'll work with you year-round to minimize your tax liability and maximize your savings. Let us help you keep more of what's yours.

Tax Expertise on Corporate Compensation & Benefits

Receiving stock compensation or deferred compensation plans are great, but paying taxes twice on them? Not so much. Our team knows what to look for so the compensation you've earned stays with you. 

Tax Services Designed with Corporate Professionals in Mind

Our team of CPAs helps you navigate the complex world of taxes. Most online tax software can’t handle the nuances of reporting stock compensation, and can't properly identify opportunities to lower your tax bill. Whether you are an expat, have deferred compensation, or simply need help understanding the latest tax laws, we can help.
