Avantax Retirement Plan Services, formerly HK Financial
Services Retirement Plan Services, was created in 2010, after HK Financial
Services (HKFS) recognized the need for an in-house, turn-key retirement plan
solution for business owner clients. Business owner clients were turning, and
continue to turn, to their CPA for advice related to retirement plans and as
the firms financial partner, it made sense to launch Retirement Plan Solutions.
The idea to bring retirement plan services in-house allowed for retirement
strategies to align with the long-term financial planning of the business owner.
With our holistic view of financial planning, we focus on the primary goals of the
business owner and help create a tailored retirement plan that helps maximize their
contributions and tax deductions.
In 2020, HKFS and Retirement Plan Services was acquired by
Blucora. In 2021, HKFS Retirement Plan Services rebranded to Avantax Retirement
Plan Services and now serves CPA, Tax Professionals and business owners through
Avantax Wealth Management and Avantax Planning Partners.
Avantax Retirement Services, formerly HKFS Retirement, was founded in 1995 by partners of Honkamp Krueger & Co., P.C. In 2020, HKFS was acquired by Blucora, a leading provider of technology-enabled financial solutions to consumers, small businesses, and tax professionals. Blucora’s products and services in tax preparation and wealth management, through two business units, TaxAct and Avantax, help consumers manage their financial lives. As the latest addition to the Blucora family, Avantax Retirement Services strengthens our business model to connect tax planning advice to investment, insurance, and retirement planning – providing a holistic approach to planning.
