The dreaded April 15 tax deadline seems to continually loom over the heads of our clients.

Contact our trusted financial planners in Maryland to get started with tax planning and preparation.
Effective tax planning requires year round attention by a qualified advisor. At the beginning of each year, our team of CPA’s work with our client managers to generate a detailed tax projection for clients. On a quarterly basis, these projections are updated, federal and state withholdings are verified, and estimated tax liabilities or refunds are calculated. Our Maryland financial advisors are solely devoted to safeguarding you from paying an unnecessary amount of tax in the following areas:
- Federal Income Tax
- State and Local Income Tax
- Corporate Tax
- Self-Employment Tax
- Capital Gains Tax
- Alternative Minimum Tax
- Gift Tax
- Estate Tax
At Geier Asset Management, we offer an integrated approach to tax and financial planning. We understand choosing the right investments can be stressful, but with an expert by your side you will see different investment options and the tax consequences of various financial decisions.
Tax Planning for Self-Employed
Our clients who are self-employed or work in multiple states throughout the year require additional, and often times extensive, tax planning. Since self-employed individuals do not have the luxury of having federal and state taxes withheld from their paycheck, they are required to make quarterly estimated tax payments to cover their projected tax liabilities. However, because a payroll system is not calculating a withholding amount, self-employed individuals are at greater risk of being under withheld. For those individuals that earn income in several states, liabilities to multiple states arise. Failure to make quarterly estimated tax payments to these municipalities in a timely manner will result in interest and penalties in addition to the initial liability. Our tax team understands the necessary planning that is required to be prepared to file a tax return.
Tax Planning for Your Investments
Tax planning also means coordinating and managing the effects of taxation on everyday decisions. Our tax professionals work with our clients to address the tax impact on investments, charitable giving, and the purchase and sale of assets.
Tax Return Preparation
Thorough tax planning throughout the year will aid in an easier and more efficient tax filing experience. However, gathering the necessary documents and inputting the data on a tax return is a foreign task to most and can become dangerous if the return is filed incorrectly. Therefore, utilizing a qualified tax preparer will save you a great deal of time and will mitigate the risk of an incorrect filing.
