We appreciate our subscribers and clients.  As the IRS, state and local agencies try to increase revenue any way they can.  Our firm seeks to insure that our clients pay all of their government obligations, but no more.  Using confusion and ambiguity to extract more money from citizenry is not right nor in concert with the efforts and insightful brilliance of our country’s founding fathers.

We don’t use tricks or schemes, but rather expert knowledge and appropriate strategies to accomplish what is in our clients best interest while seeing that their fair share is exactly that; not something justified by a bureaucracy that has grown inefficient and unmanageably cumbersome from it’s own massive weight.
