Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Responsibilities
Growing businesses often reach a point where they require high-level professional financial advice, but can't afford a full-time CFO or controller.

Even for a small business, the cost of hiring a qualified, full-time CFO can range from $80,000 to well over $100,000 per year plus bonuses and benefits. Our CFO service provides you with experienced support at a small fraction of that cost--available on a short-term or long-term arrangement.

Estate planning can be complicated and costly. The list seems endless... state taxes, probate courts, appraisals, health care concerns, eligibility of heirs, life insurance, IRAs, 401(k)s, annuities, and more. Not knowing your financial and legal rights often ends up costing more than planning ahead. At Stunkel Tax & Accounting, we take retirement and estate tax planning seriously. As the owner, knowing my business will survive if something happens to me is important to my associates and clients. As a husband and father, knowing my wife and children will be taken care of if something happens to me is essential.

IRS Problems & Solutions
Stunkel Tax & Accounting is here to help you resolve Internal Revenue Service tax problems. When the IRS notifies you of a pending audit, informs you that taxes have not been paid, or for any other non-compliance issue, it’s best to contact a professional. Deciding to handle a situation with the IRS yourself is the same as representing yourself in a court case. It’s not your area of expertise. It is an area in which we excel. >>more info>>
