I read tax case law extensively and work with Tax Attorneys on all complex issues.
If you come to me with a complex tax issue you can be assured that I will discuss the issue with the top tax attorneys in the country and get their ideas on resolution before proceeding with any position I take. Anything the Tax Court puts in writing overrides the IRS Tax Code and Regulations immediately.

What do I enjoy about the work I do?

Using the skills I was born with. I have an excellent facility for working with numbers and organizing. While I was working at large CPA firms, when a client came in with a big mess of boxes and paper I always got the job. I could sort through the extreme detail and complete the work in a reasonable amount of time.

Usually when big messes come in CPA firms get stuck with extensive non billable time that was put into the work. When I got the big mess I could do the job with zero time that they couldn't bill the client. Since CPA firms always bill by the hour this gave the client the best price.

I enjoy having a new client suddenly realize that now they understand tax and what they have to do every year to maximize their deductions. My clients always appreciate the time I spend training them how to keep a record keeping system that will support them if ever audited.
