Tax Services

Helping you plan ahead.

Proper planning can make even the most painful obligations just another checkmark on the list of growth and profitability. Your tax return is no different. By working with an experienced CPA and taking the proper steps in advance, your tax preparation meeting will be less about the past and more about tax planning to help you reach your goals, reduce your tax bill, and eliminate surprises.

It’s essential to have an experienced professional by your side year-round, not just during tax season. Dedekian, George, Small & Markarian, our experienced tax professionals, have years of combined experience assisting individuals and businesses with their unique financial situations. With a proactive approach, clients benefit from multiple connections and touchpoints throughout the year with their CPA. We can help by forecasting changes and providing advice that minimizes your tax liabilities as much as possible.

We serve individuals, businesses, estates, and trusts throughout California’s Central Valley and beyond. For more than 40 years, we have been helping our clients understand, plan and address their potential tax implications.

  • Estates and trust
  • Corporate tax
