Tax Planning and Tax Preparation are different, though both are important.  Tax planning involves yearlong strategies created to optimize tax benefits.  We work with our clients to make the kind of  changes which will make tax preparation time less painful.  At tax prep time, our knowledgable team works to find every applicable credit and deduction to save clients money.  While we believe that tax planning is important, we can save our clients money as we prepare their taxes whether they have made a tax plan or not.
