Catherine's specialties

  • Rental Income

    Income received for letting someone use or occupy your property, or the process used to deduct the costs of buying and improving a rental property.

  • Charitable giving

    Donations made to qualified charities that can be deducted to reduce taxable income.

  • Loss from disasters or theft (e.g., flood, tornado)

    A casualty/disaster loss can result from the damage, destruction, or loss of property from any sudden, unexpected, or unusual event. A theft is the illegal taking and removal of money or property with the intent to deprive the owner of it. They can only be deducted if not reimbursed or reimbursable by insurance or other means.

  • Foreign Income Exclusions

    Foreign income sources like wages, interest from a bank account, payouts on a stock, or rental income are all taxable in the U.S.

  • Retirement

    Retirement income, pensions, and annuities can change the way you file your taxes.

  • Income from multiple States

    The IRS has certain rules for paying state income tax for those who work in multiple states.

  • Tax Audit & Notice Services

    Notices from the IRS that say there’s an issue with your return, you have an unpaid balance, or other tax problem.

  • Tax Planning

    Any financial strategy that does not include tax planning is missing part of the larger picture.
