AGH Specialized Tax Solutions

Building Profitability for Business Owners and Business Leaders:

AGH Specialized Tax Solutions, LLC's (AGH STS) professionals draw on a wide range of tools to help organizations and individuals across the U.S. minimize their tax liability and improve profitability. AGH STS brings together a highly trained tax and engineering team whose members have years of experience delivering strategies for tax savings such as cost segregation studies, tangible asset repair regulations planning, research and development tax credit studies, tax nexus reviews and sales tax reverse reviews.

Partnering with CPA and Law Firms:

Many organizations don't want or need to have highly specialized tax expertise on staff. AGH STS can work with CPA firms or law firms to supplement the firms' existing tax resources. The current client relationship is preserved, while the CPA or law firm increases the profitability of its client base and the services that its professionals can offer through AGH STS. We work as an extension of your firm to supplement your practice by providing specialized services while preserving your relationship with your client.

Providing Education for CPAs and Business Leaders:

Through ongoing webinars, white papers and seminars, AGH STS professionals work to share knowledge of the technical and business aspects of these sophisticated tax options in ways that benefit companies and their owners.

We're Here for the Long Term

AGH STS' methods have been proven through years of successfully delivering tax benefits to our clients. After the engagement is complete, as with all of our work, we stand behind you to help ensure that the services we offer withstand tax-authority scrutiny.
