By Peter D. Prescott CPA, Masters in Taxation
Prescott Tax & Wealth Management (PTWM) was formed over 25 years ago to focus on the needs of individuals and small business owners who want and deserve a more comprehensive approach to their tax and financial affairs. As a multi-generational firm, we believe our one-stop shop approach can help you and your family’s financial future.
As with everything in life, nothing is constant. Our interests, goals and needs are perpetually evolving, and the number of complexities continue to grow whether we like it or not. As many of you know, the tax and financial landscape has changed tremendously over the past few years. People are searching for trusted teams that will advise them and their families in all areas of their financial life.
Our team astutely observes that most individuals have separate relationships with their CPA and financial advisor(s) who, candidly, don’t always consider the implications of their recommendations. And in a world where you can Google anything, it’s hard to decipher if the source or information is reliable. We believe you need an experienced team of professionals that can stay current with all the new tax and financial laws and interpret what is important and relevant to YOUR situation.
We believe we are a unique approach to tax, wealth management and financial planning. At our core, we are CPA financial advisors that provide you and your family with a one-stop shop or family office approach. With over 150 years of combined experience, we review all financial scenarios with a keen eye towards tax planning.
We can help you and/or your business with tax preparation and planning, wealth management, benefits and insurance, retirement plan services and more. In the end, our mission is to provide you, your family, and/or your business with the following:
- Organization: We will help bring order to your financial life.
- Accountability: We will help you follow through on your financial commitments.
- Objectivity: We help you avoid emotionally driven decisions in important tax and financial matters.
- Proactivity: We work with you to anticipate your life transitions and to be financially prepared for them. Time spent in preparation avoids time spent in reparation.
- Education: We will explore what specific knowledge will be needed to succeed in your situation AND help you understand the why behind our recommendations, so you feel confident.
- Partnership: We will help you achieve your best life and will work in concert with you to make this possible.
For those of you who would benefit from our services, we encourage you to first come to PTWM as a CPA tax client or for a comprehensive financial review. Both approaches allow us to find tax savings and efficiencies, which are often the greatest source of financial returns (we call this tax alpha). More importantly, this process will give our team an opportunity to learn more about your individual goals that normally don’t come to life when we are just reviewing the numbers. Unlike most CPAs, we are extroverted people persons that are looking for a long-term personal relationship. This is our philosophy, and we hope you can resonate with that. We look forward to meeting you and being of service.
