Why Lodestar?

We begin with the end in mind.

“To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.”
– Stephen R. Covey

The Lodestar journey is elevated by three fundamental pillars.

  • We save our clients time through the automation of routine administrative tasks
  • We save our clients thousands of dollars on taxes annually through our effective tax planning
  • We save our clients from stress and anxiety by ensuring their compliance with the latest IRS regulations

At Lodestar Advisors, we chart a custom growth path for each of our clients because we understand each individual, each business, has their own path with their own unique challenges. We offer a thoughtful and measured solution—to clearly see where you are and be confident in where you are going. Rather than just providing annual tax support, we’re working with you throughout the year to plan for the future, handle your changing needs, and evaluate your performance in an ongoing and consistent basis.

We’re not an IT company, but we believe in cloud-based solutions that allow our clients to easily access their information and work from virtually anywhere. We can make you a believer too! After learning more about your needs, we’ll make a customized recommendation and even help you set up everything. So you’re not taking more of your time away from the tasks that matter the most—you’re just increasing your efficiency.

Ultimately, our success is driven by your success. We look at taxes as a report card, rather than a focus. With the right planning and projections in place, there will be fewer surprises along the way. See what the Lodestar Advisor approach can do for you and your business.
