Tax Management

We guide our clients through a full range of tax planning and preparation decisions with strategies that minimize tax liabilities, maximize cash flow and keep things on track with set financial goals. 

We are knowledgeable and current on the tax laws, and our expertise, experience, analysis and research allow us to optimize financial opportunities to be found in existing as well as recently altered regulations.

Already a local tax client and planning a move? Not a problem, our offices support clients on the go in the military and others who have relocated to different parts of the country.

IRS Representation

Professional representation can be vital during an audit, and our experience with tax authorities enables us to guide clients in their dealings with federal and state agencies. If you are chosen for an audit, the professional representation we provide can provide real peace of mind. We are ready and willing to answer any and all questions the IRS may be asking of you.

Small Business Start-Up

From a company’s inception and throughout its growth and development, we advise our small business clients on initial identification of entity type and later restructuring, if advantageous. Additionally, we assist start-ups in setting up their accounting systems in accordance with their unique business needs. Oftentimes, our start-up clients outsource and entrust their entire accounting function to our expertise so they can completely focus on growing the business.

Industry Specialization

Though we have experience working with clients of many sizes and in most every industry, it’s worth mentioning that we don’t shy away from those with a more challenging reputation, financially speaking, including small business, construction, restaurant and retail. All industries are welcome!

 Born, raised and educated in Vermont, I’ve been providing personalized financial guidance to local individuals and businesses for more than thirty years. I had my start in accounting working for large construction companies, where I learned the intricacies of big business firsthand. In time, I decided to offer my services to a wide variety of businesses and individuals, thus establishing the offices of Russell M. Blodgett, CPA.

Our expertise ranges from basic tax management and accounting services to more in-depth services such as business start-up and management consulting. The focus of our practice has always been on providing responsive, customized service, and we ensure that every client receives the personal attention they require and deserve.
