“Don’t want to pay taxes? Easy. Just stop making money.”
This used to be my response to people complaining about taxes. Way, way back in the day before I knew the real real about how to leverage the Tax Code to build wealth and reduce your tax burden “at the same damn time”.
Now, I know better. Now I know that the Tax Code has opportunities for tax reduction strategies all “up through there”.
Now don’t get me wrong – the easiest way to cut your tax bill is to stop making money. No money, no taxes. But there’s a much better way to still make money and reduce (not eliminate) your tax burden.
After 12 tax seasons preparing income tax returns for everybody from low-income individuals to multi-billion dollar corporations, I’ve decided to switch gears and focus on teaching small business owners how to proactively reduce their tax burden with comprehensive tax planning.
As a Certified Tax Coach, I now help people keep more of their hard-earned profits in their pockets and out of Uncle Sam’s hands using the same legitimate, proven tax strategies that “the big guys” use in their businesses.

WHAT IS AN ENROLLED AGENT?
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are federally-licensed tax practitioners who may represent taxpayers before the IRS when it comes to collections, audits, and appeals. As authorized by the Department of Treasury’s Circular 230 regulations, EAs are granted unlimited practice rights to represent taxpayers before IRS and are authorized to advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any entities with tax-reporting requirements. Enrolled agents are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. The enrolled agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the U.S. Treasury Department. Enrolled agents’ expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers at all administrative levels within the IRS.
WHAT IS A CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT?
A CPA, or Certified Public Accountant, is a trusted financial advisor who helps individuals, businesses, and other organizations plan and reach their financial goals. Whatever those goals – saving for a new home, opening a new office, or planning a multi-billion dollar merger – CPAs can help.
