What Makes Us Different

We Have High Standards

We Are Independent

AICPA LogoYou have high standards, and so do we. We hold ourselves accountable to the high standards of the American Institute of CPAs, which sets ethical standards for our profession.

We work only for you – not a bank, brokerage firm, insurance company or mutual fund. Our recommendations are based upon what we feel is best for you, not what is best for a third-party provider.

Our specialized team of Tax Professionals and Financial Advisors can show you how you could manage your taxes in retirement.


We Are A Fiduciary

Our Team Is Your Team

A fiduciary is a professional who is legally bound to serve the interest of his/her clients above all else. Most financial providers are not fiduciaries. Vivid Tax is a fiduciary and puts your best interest first. Always.

The most effective wealth management strategy is one that integrates and coordinates all forms of financial planning. That’s why your team at Vivid Tax will include tax and legal professionals, who work together to innovate a retirement plan from a tax-smart perspective.
