Whether your business is law, construction, manufacturing, retail, or government contracting, and you require exit planning, asset protection, or a tax planning solution, our business has been "solving clients' problems" since 1977.

A federal district court held that the Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) is unconstitutional and does not even satisfy the commerce clause, which has been historically interpreted to justify all kinds of intrusive federal regulations.”

While the CTA makes its way through court, what are business owners to do? “We’re advising clients to get their information together, and we hope that FinCEN comes out with definitions that will assist us in preparing these forms,” Steve Bankler told Sheppard.
