Brock Built Homes has been pleased to work with Gross Collins since 2006. Gross Collins is so much more than what we were used to getting from our former accounting firm. Gross Collins has provided excellent advice, recommendations, business strategies, industry standards, and accounting. Our business would not be where it is today without the work that Gross Collins has provided. Brock Built Homes gives an excellent recommendation to anyone who is considering working with Gross Collins.

Many people prize tax deductions. The promise of a deduction can affect decisions in many areas, including charitable contributions, home buying, and investing in rental property. However, tax deductions offer only partial relief because they reduce income, not the tax bill. The higher your income and tax bracket, the more you'll benefit from a tax deduction.
A tax credit, on the other hand, is a direct reduction of the tax you owe. If Heidi and Ken both receive a $1,000 tax credit, they'll both trim their tax obligation by $1,000. Moreover, many tax credits have income limits and phaseouts, which effectively means they're available to low- and middle-income taxpayers but not to people with relatively high incomes.
A tax deduction reduces your taxable income, while a tax credit reduces the tax owed.
More credits, more assistance
There are many credits available to taxpayers depending on income. The child tax credit, child and independent care tax credit, higher education credits and more.
Income tax planning will go a long way toward helping you take advantage of all available credits deductions to which you are entitled. HLB Gross Collins, P.C. can help you plan to make the most of these dollar-for-dollar tax savers.
“Crunching Numbers” for me is only one of the many things I appreciate about HLB Gross Collins. Over the many years of working with Pauline, who I consider my accountant and friend, I have developed a relationship which reflects trust and loyalty. I know she has my best interest as a basis for all her advice. Caring may be the key word. She is always available to guide my decisions in a supportive and professional manner. I consider myself fortunate to be a client.
We appreciate the personal approach Gross Collins takes with our tax planning and preparation needs.
