Construction & Contractor CPA Services

Income and expenses can vary widely from year to year, so it is important to have an experienced construction CPA firm in Phoenix Metro behind you every step of the way.

Construction Tax Services

We understand construction and the Arizona trade. The tax and accounting professionals at Sean Core CPA PLLC knows you will have ebbs and flows from year-to-year, and throughout the year, in work availability, profits and cash flows. We are also on top of the industry-specific compliance challenges that can impact your bottom line.

Here is a look at some of the many services we provide to help contractors and construction companies in Arizona maximize profits:

  • Federal, state and local tax compliance and planning. We understand the planning cycle for construction CPA clients is different than that used for other industries and types of businesses, and we also know that you are subject to more than just IRS taxation and filing requirements. Through proactive planning, we will help you identify ways to make the most of your business income throughout the year, with an eye on federal, state and local tax laws. You may also be subject to sales taxes for contractors in multiple jurisdictions. If so, we will help you identify the requirements and maintain compliance with them.
  • Business Tax Services and Personal tax preparation. When it’s time to file tax returns for your construction business, you can rely on our knowledge and expertise to help you make the most of all available credits and deductions- and all the accounting surrounding it. Because your business and personal tax returns are likely closely related to one another, we can handle your personal taxes as well, helping you identify opportunities you may otherwise have missed. We are also experienced in handling alternative minimum tax (AMT) planning and compliance issues and we can help you understand the implications of decisions related to estate and succession planning for your business.
  • Financial analysis. By analyzing your financial statements and accounts, we can help you identify your company’s strengths and weaknesses. We will also help you understand the relationship between your fixed and variable expenses through break-even analyses.
  • Look-back planning & compliance. We have the technical expertise to help you identify if you are subject to the look-back tax requirements and, if so, we will work to incorporate these requirements into the other tax planning and services we offer.
  • Contractor real estate tax strategy. You may also have needs related to your business real estate transactions. We can help advise on the tax implications of real property acquisitions, property taxes, real estate investment properties, and decisions about buying versus leasing real estate.
