  • Excise Taxes Related to Employee Benefit Plans (Form 5330)

We serve as a consistent and reliable resource, encourage communication throughout the year, and offer regular updates to clients on regulatory changes issued by the Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service. While some CPA firms use benefit plan audits to train new staff or as filler work during the slow season, Miller Kaplan devotes a sizable and stable team of highly trained professionals to serving its employee benefit plan clients. Clients receive continuity of service from professionals knowledgeable about their plans.
