Tax Planning & Preparation

He who hesitates is lost, as the proverb goes. The same goes for she. Tax planning and preparation, conversely, lends itself to overarching success. It gives you a strategy for countering the unexpected. Done effectively, it also leaves you with more money. That’s our philosophy, as we believe in tax planning that goes beyond mere tax preparation. Don’t hesitate—our tax planning and preparation service is about seeing you thrive, which means staying up-to-date on the tax law and a step ahead of how it affects you. From outsourced services and financial accounting to payroll processing, we’ll help set you up so that you’re poised for success

Strategic Planning

Business owners take heed: strategic planning can make all the difference in the world. And in our experience, it usually does, at least in the long run. Secure peace of mind. A seasoned financial professional can help you achieve exactly that. We’ll help you create a financial plan and identify your corporate structure, all while choosing accounting, tax and insurance strategies that suit your business. Take charge—learn exactly what you need to know in order to succeed. Tracking your income, expenses, job costs, and profitability, we’ll help you understand what you’re looking at, allowing you to focus on running and growing your business.

Accounting & Payroll

The truth is, tax preparers in St. Charles, MO aren’t hard to come by. A quick Google search will yield dozens upon dozens of results. At Clemmer & Associates, one of the things that set us apart from other tax preparers in the area is the dedication we show toward building relationships with our clients.

That way, you’re able to make financial decisions with renewed confidence. At Clemmer & Associates, we wouldn’t have it any other way: it’s truly rewarding to have a hand in that process! We’re here to help St. Charles—feel free to drop us a note with questions!

Why You Should Consider Working With Us

Financial Statements

Quantifying your income is one thing. Seeing how your income and cash flow line up is something else altogether. We can help with that. Envision the big picture and see your finances anew. In doing so, you’ll be able to identify exactly where you need to cut back on spending. Likewise, you’ll get the added benefit of seeing where you need to refocus in order to expand and grow.

General Information

Have you ever felt frustrated with your CPA or tax preparer? You won’t on our watch. We can be reached when it counts—no calling around. That’s because we operate with the guiding principle that you’re looking for a financial partner who knows how to keep your home, business, and financial health in alignment with your goals. That takes communication. Our associates are skilled communicators. From there, we develop strategies, personalized support, and service packages tailored to your specific personal and business needs.

IRS Representation

Audits happen. Good news is, there’s no need to go it alone. We’ll help you understand the IRS, and in turn, help you to avoid audits in the first place. When one does come up, however, you’ll find you have the hard-earned peace of mind that comes with a rounded comprehension. We take pride in our proven track record.

When it comes to selecting an accountant here in St. Charles (or anywhere else for that matter!), there is no better criteria for measuring success. Like most people, you’re probably unsure of exactly how to go about choosing a qualified accountant. Here are 10 questions to ask yourself throughout the process (not in priority order):

 • Do they have expertise in the areas that are relevant to you?

 • How many years of tax experience do they possess?

 • What tax license(s) do they have?

 • Do they have an advanced degree?

 • Will they represent you if you find yourself being audited?

 • Will they review your past tax returns? If so, at what charge?

 • Is there anything I can do to keep fees down?

• How do they compare with other accountants throughout the St. Charles area?

 • Who, exactly, will work on your tax return?

 • Does the tax advisor need to be local?
