Financial Advisors Committed To Delivering Massive Value
We work with financial advisors who have felt the pain of the status quo of tax preparation and are ready for something different. Alongside the financial advisors in our community, we deliver massive value to our shared clients through a year round proactive tax planning and tax preparation relationship.

With RTS Premiere, taxes are no longer a once a year transaction
  • Who reviews your clients tax returns to make sure that the hard work you did on planning is reported to the IRS correctly?
  • Who prepares tax projections to make sure planning opportunities are identified when there is still time to do something about it?
  • Who monitors IRS notices on behalf of your clients?
  • Who provides a central location for financial advisors to share information with the tax professionals in their clients’ life to make the whole process less painful, more timely, and ultimately more VALUABLE?
  • Who provides a tax help desk for financial advisors to ask client specific questions to a tax team that already has that clients’ tax data?
  • Who monitors tax changes and puts out action plans for how to help your clients instead of just putting out political opinion pieces?
  • Who takes care of document retention around tax planning?
  • Who is going to stand by your client if the IRS comes with questions?
RTS Premiere can be the answer to all of these. Whether these are currently being addressed for your clients or you do some or all of them but would like to spend your time on the things that only you can do, the RTS Tax Team can help.

(Tax Partnership)
RTS is the ONLY tax service in the industry focused on serving taxpayers THROUGH their Financial Advisor AND committed to a year round tax relationship. Filing the tax return is an important step, but it is the first step, not the finish line.
➡️ All the benefits of the RTS Essentials membership, which focuses on tax planning content and resources.
BONUS for tax return reviews - these reviews will happen automatically for all of your clients that sign up for the tax preparation and planning program, and in addition, you will be able to submit an extra client return for review each quarter.
➡️ RTS Tax Calculator for tax projections and scenario analysis
RTS Premiere Members can use this tool for ANY of their clients, not just the clients who are part of the RTS Tax Preparation program. BONUS: send in the tax returns and the RTS Tax Team will upload the data into the tool for you so you can skip the data entry and get right to planning.
➡️ Exclusive access to the RTS Tax Preparation program
Tax preparation by RTS is finally here but it is ONLY being made available to taxpayers who work with an Advisor who is an RTS Premiere member. For the 2021 tax season we will not sign up taxpayers directly into our program, no exceptions. Our focus is on delivering an exceptional experience to the taxpayers we serve AND the great financial advisors who are our members.
➡️ RTS Premiere Client Portal
This is your dashboard for submitting client specific questions to the RTS Tax Team, securely exchanging documents, checking the status of tax preparation and other value adds, providing the RTS Tax Team with any planning notes that might have a tax impact AND is one of the ways we ensure that delivering massive value to the end client is a COLLABORATION.
➡️ Even more white label content
Everything we do is designed to keep you at the center of your clients' financial lives, which is why we put out content on tax planning topics for you to use with your clients and prospects.
Please note: we are only accepting new RTS Premiere members until 11/23/2021, 11:59 PM PST. 
(Tax Resources)
All Financial Advisors should be delivering massive value through tax planning. We are very outspoken about this one. This is not because it’s easy, it’s because it impacts everyone. Every financial decision you recommend to a client has a tax effect, great advisors are doing something about it.
➡️ Monthly newsletter
Deep dive on a specific tax topic that covers the technical details AND how to deliver value to real clients. Our newsletters include input from great Financial Advisors who are currently serving clients and doing the things we are recommending. Which means we know they work! We always include scripts and example emails so you know how to communicate these topics.
➡️ Tax return reviews
Once per quarter you can submit a tax return (we recommend a prospect or top client so you get the most value) for our team to review and provide insight.
➡️ Growing library of tax return review videos by the RTS Tax Team
With permission from our members, we redact the personal information from returns we receive and share the videos from our review with the community. So even though you only get to submit one return per quarter you are able to learn from a variety of REAL client situations each quarter as our library continues to grow.
➡️ Tax checklists and resources
Whether it’s year end planning or simply a tax reference guide designed by and for financial advisors, we provide tools to help make tax planning more valuable for you and your clients.
➡️ Member Exclusive Webinars 
Everything we do is focused on “what works” for financial advisors, which is why we are committed to bringing you monthly live content that is co-hosted by Steven Jarvis, our resident Head CPA AND a financial advisor currently serving clients. This is also another opportunity for our members to ask questions. All sessions are recorded and made available on-demand to our members.
➡️ Members forum
This is your chance to engage with the RTS community and as a bonus the forum is moderated by our RTS Tax Team.
Similar to RTS Premiere, we will only be accepting new RTS Essentials memberships for 2021 until 11/23/2021, 11:59 PM PST. 
The RTS Tax Team is headed up by a nationally recognized CPA and the RTS Leadership team includes industry leading CFPs. That collaboration is a key element to RTS and something that sets us apart from almost every tax offering on the market. We built a system that we know works with financial advisors and their clients because it was built in collaboration with financial advisors who are currently practicing and using the services that RTS offers.

Tax preparation, like so many financial services, can range in complexity. To make sure our members receive the highest quality and value from what we offer, we have a narrow focus on who we serve. Our current focus is on serving individuals who meet the criteria below for Moderate Complexity.
Your client has a Moderately Complex tax return (and is a great fit for RTS
if any or all of the following apply to him/her:
  • Your client files a 1040 or 1040SR
  • Your client has W-2 income
  • Your client receives 1099s (no limit on how many)
  • Your client has 3 or fewer rental properties (schedule E)

  • Your client contributes to or uses funds from a Health Savings Account (form 8889)
  • Your client has a small (under $10,000) side business that he/she fully owns with no employees
  • Your client files in his/her state of residency and up to one other state
  • Your client receives Social Security
  • Your client receives a K-1 as an indirect or passive owner (he/she is not responsible for filing the company’s return) - due to timing of when K-1s are typically sent out this will mean that your return is put on extension
  • Your client does NOT meet any of the criteria under Highly Complex below
Your client has a Highly Complex tax return (and is not a fit yet for RTS
if any or all of the following apply to him/her:
  • Your client has stock based compensation
  • Your client has installment sales
  • Your client owns more than 3 rental properties
  • Your client has international income/taxes
  • Your client owns a business generating over $10,000 in income (requiring schedule C)

  • Your client has unfiled tax returns for tax years other than 2018-2020 (note: an additional charge applies if multiple year's returns need to be filed)
  • Your client buys and sells cryptocurrencies
“What if they think they have moderately complex return but it turns out they have a highly complex return?”
Our first step when we take on a new client is reviewing previous tax returns. This is done as soon as the returns are provided to us, and we will notify you ASAP before we start working, so there are no surprises. 
If your client is not a fit for our service this year, any payments will be fully refunded and we will do our 
best to refer them to another professional.
