Nashville Tax Services


Forbes 2020 America's Best Accounting Firms - Powered by Statista

As Tennessee’s premiere accounting experts, we pride ourselves on picking up where other firms leave off. We offer the same level of national expertise and experience as the biggest firms in the country, but with unexpected accessibility. We prioritize service and responsiveness in a way characteristic of a much smaller firm, but backed by deep industry knowledge. That’s because with LBMC, you don’t have to choose between quality and warmth — you get the best of both worlds.

We tailor our audit approach to the needs and characteristics of each client and invest time to become familiar with each client’s business and accounting systems.

Preparation & Planning: LBMC’s service model begins with detailed planning and agreed to timelines to ensure that deadlines and expectations are met. LBMC commits to meeting with our clients on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Collaboration: The LBMC tax team partners with you as an extension of your own internal resources, acting as not merely a service team, but as an advisor to the operation of your enterprise or family.
Responsiveness: As an extension of your internal resources, the LBMC tax teams are committed to providing timely and accurate solutions and are able to pivot quickly to meet the needs of your business or family.

Nashville CPAs and Accountants

As the top Tennessee-based CPA firm, we believe our Nashville accountants have the knowledge, qualifications, and expertise to offer the highest level of service available at a superior value. If you desire an accounting firm that has an experienced and responsive service team skilled in tax compliance and tax transactional structuring, and experience working with complex businesses with multi-state operations, then LBMC is the firm for you.

Federal Business

We will work closely with you to understand your business operations and identify tax issues and strategies necessary to meet your business goals. The complexity of income tax laws offers many opportunities for tax savings or tax deferrals. Because it is your right to employ every legitimate means to reduce your tax liability, we focus our tax services on insightful and timely tax planning advice.

State and Local

State and Local Tax needs are constant, recurring events. The impact of state taxation on businesses is complicated. Managing risk and identifying opportunities within state and local tax laws can be overwhelming. This evolving area of the law has created uncertainty on all sides regarding when you are taxable, how much income is taxable, or what is and is not taxable. On the bright side, complexity creates opportunity.

Multinational companies and those considering expansion overseas face a growing number of international tax planning and compliance challenges. It can be nearly impossible to keep up with all the changing regulatory, legislative and tax requirements. Multinational businesses in real estate investment, distribution and manufacturing, technology and many other sectors can turn to our experienced team.
