1/30/2024: We have reached our capacity for taking on new clients this tax season.



PIM Tax Services

PIM is a nautical acronym for Plan of Intended Movement. When the Captain of a ship tells the Navigator, “We need to be in Galveston next Tuesday,” the Navigator develops the Plan of Intended Movement; the PIM. It is the appropriate course and speed to achieve the Captain’s goal – which is to move the ship to the appointed place and arrive at the designated time.

PIM is also a fine analogy for tax and financial planning (which are inseparable). The Captain (You) tells the Navigator (Me) where you want to go and when you want to get there with respect to your financial goals. I develop the tax and financial plans that get you where you want to be at the designated time.

Tax efficiency is crucial in financial planning. While everyone acknowledges the need for government revenue, nobody wants to overpay taxes. The complexity of tax laws and extensive forms can be overwhelming. PIM Tax Services LLC, a veteran-owned tax planning and preparation firm in Virginia Beach, offers expert tax return preparation at affordable prices. We provide transparent fees, ensuring informed decisions. Active duty, reserve, and retired military personnel receive a 20% discount. Our services include reliable tax preparation, thorough explanations, advice on minimizing future tax burdens, and a fee that adds value to you.
