  • Strategic planning

Almost every business or personal financial decision has tax consequences. Our objective is to help our clients make the best overall business decision, giving full consideration to the immediate and long-range tax ramifications. For our clients, corporate and personal goals are considered in tax planning strategies.

We prepare all types of tax returns including corporate, partnership, individual, estate, and trust. At Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP we stay abreast of changing tax laws so we can offer our clients a broad base of technical expertise.

We strive to meet the complete personal and corporate tax needs of our business clients and approach planning from the total perspective of our clients. Estate planning is an important element of the long-term planning needs of our clients.
