Industry Specialization

Our clients’ businesses and industries are different and so are the specialized business and tax issues affecting them. By being industry specialists, we understand our clients’ needs and challenges and can anticipate and help clients plan for industry changes.

Our tax professionals specialize in medical and dental practices; real estate and development companies; manufacturing and distribution companies; and entertainers, musicians and artists. Our industry knowledge gives us the expertise to understand the challenges business owners face in their industries and offer solutions.

Medical Practices – Physicians and Dentists

We know physicians and dentists are busy working with their patients. Like you, Innov8 CPAs regularly works with clients to give their financial and business operations a clean bill of health. Our tax professionals know the industry, and the regulatory and growing business issues physicians and dentists face.

We put our experience to work for you by improving your financial and accounting practices, so you can spend your time helping your patients. We serve individual physician and dental offices, as well as physician groups and associations.

Investment Property, Real Estate and Development

Our team of tax professionals are experts in working with clients who are involved in investment property, real estate and development. Our clients look to us for help with all comprehensive tax consulting services for all types of investment property and real estate transactions including residential, multifamily residential, retail and office commercial development, land and building development, and medical facilities.

Through careful planning and by working with a tax professional that is familiar with investment properties, creating a well-planned tax strategy can benefit the real estate transaction and the investor.

Manufacturing and Distribution

For more than 45 years, we’ve advised our clients in manufacturing and distribution through economic changes, regulatory changes, labor shifts, health care changes, and globalization. The industry is always changing, and Innov8 CPAs has the experience and resources to help clients adapt and thrive amidst the change.

We don’t just provide tax planning – we work with clients to develop long-term strategies for growth. We make sure clients take advantage of tax incentives and are prepared for opportunities that are all too common in the manufacturing and distribution market like merger, acquisition and expansion opportunities. Clients look to us to help them streamline operations, reduce costs, improve efficiencies, increase performance and ultimately increase profit margins.

Entertainers, Musicians and Artists

Innov8 CPAs specializes in working with musicians, artists, and creative individuals and businesses in the entertainment industry. We’ve provided entertainment industry tax and withholding services for individuals, bands and artists who have entertained around the world, and who keep their art and performances close to home.

Entertainers need to focus on skills, the next project and growing their career, but at the same time also need to keep an eye on expenses, protect assets and financially prepare for the future. Partner Wendy Wixson has helped entertainers do this for more than 10 years and is recognized in the US and Canada as being a specialist in providing business advisory and accounting services to entertainers, artists and musicians.

Working with an expert who understands the entertainment industry and all that it demands, provides peace of mind so entertainers can do what they do best – entertain.
