Professional Focus – How I Can Help You
As a lifelong student of the US Tax Code, I am a problem solver and a protector of taxpayersâ€™ rights. I lead a team of Enrolled Agents, Accountants, Bookkeepers, and Attorneys. Together we seek out and bring clarity to the U.S. Tax Code for all U.S. taxpayers.
As a Federally Authorized Tax Practitioner and a tax appeals specialist, I work for U.S. taxpayers everywhere to de-escalate stress and reconcile tax disputes for individual and business taxpayers.
Although I am not an attorney, my enrollment with the United States Department of Treasury under U.S. Treasury Circular 230 allows for confidential representation over most all civil tax matters.
I monitor federal and state taxing authorities and report on relevant tax topics in this well-subscribed tax blog using plain terms for general understanding â€“ subscriptions are complimentary.
I have an established history of holding leadership roles in the following organizations:
National Association of Enrolled Agents
Colorado Society of Enrolled Agents
National Association of Tax Professionals
National Tax Practice Institute, Fellow, 2012
The University of Minnesota, Carlson School Of Management, MBA, 1992
Marquette University, Business Administration, BS, 1986
