Making A Difference

I am a tax consultant and I work with people every day who have considerable tax problems. Their problems range from owing the IRS a relatively small sum of money all the way to owing a very large sum of money with years of unfiled taxes. Most of the individuals I speak with are very concerned about their situation with the IRS. They want to know what can be done to solve their problem.

The thing I like most about my job as a tax consultant is making a difference in people’s lives. The tax laws are complicated and confusing. To make matters worse there are tax resolution firms that advertise settling your tax debt for “pennies on the dollar,” which is a legitimate plan of resolution but is rarely accepted by the IRS. Such advertisements lead to further confusion.

A competent tax consultant will ask very specific questions in order to get to the heart of the matter, will not be judgmental and will tell the client the truth of their situation and will provide accurate advice as the absolute best course of action that must be taken to effectively resolve the client’s situation. If you have a tax concern and are needing honest answers to your deepest concerns call a tax professional. Listen to what they say and then make the determination whether they are concerned about you and your situation or selling you just any old service. This is the litmus test. Choose your tax consultant wisely! You want a tax consultant who is concerned about your and truly making a difference in your life for the better.
