Tax Season and Review 

One area we are very excited about with all our changes last year is new technology.  We have new software to evaluate your annual taxes for any additional financial planning opportunities.  With tax laws ever changing we want to be up to date and this new software will help us do that at no extra cost to you! 

Once you have completed your 2020 tax return follow the simple process to upload your last two years of tax returns for evaluation.  


  1. Reply to this email that you have taxes you would like to be assessed.   
  2. Securely upload your electronic 2019 and 2020 electronic tax returns by going to https://ascendinvestment.com/resources/secure-file-upload
  3. Go on with your life, we will be in touch.  


In the background we will examine your taxes against the ever-changing laws to see if there are new opportunities worth exploring.   In two to four weeks, we will reach back out if we find anything.   

We appreciate you, your families, and your business!
