MS-535 and MS-60 Compliance

We pull together all of your town’s financial information (whether you have three departments or ten), analyze the detail to support major balances, confirm everything reconciles, make any necessary adjustments and prepare final trial balance information on a GAAP basis. We then take care of all the input and filing of Form MS-535 and MS-60 with DRA.
