Welcome! I’ve been doing taxes for MANY years, first as an employee for a big box firm. Eventually I managed one of their “executive” tax offices. Later, I started my own small tax business. My clientele expands yearly, simply by word-of-mouth, which I take it means I have a good reputation. I am licensed as an enrolled agent with the IRS. This designation requires me to take continuing education yearly to maintain my license with the IRS so that I can represent clients in front of the IRS if needed. My hope with this blog is to explain tax issues simply so that the reader will find it easier to prepare information for his/her tax preparer or prepare his/her own return.
