Making Tax Court Less Taxing
November 8, 2015
As a CPA, you’ve been there. Working with a tax attorney who may have an LLM, but that’s the sum total of what he knows about the business of accounting. He’s never prepared a single return himself. And doesn’t really speak the language. Because everything he knows he learned in a classroom—not in the real world.
Is it any wonder CPAs have a hard time finding a good tax attorney? One you can trust to understand not only the law—but also you, and the accounting challenges you face.
I should know, because I began my career in tax accounting. I’ve prepared hundreds of tax returns. And felt the frustration of working with attorneys who might know tax code, but not tax forms. I knew there had to be a better way, and that’s why I became a tax attorney myself. Now, I see the total picture from both an accountant and an attorney perspective. And can be more effective in court as a result. Giving you and your clients a new advantage—perhaps one you didn’t think possible…
The perfect fit. A tax attorney who will work with you, not against you. Who doesn’t have to move up a learning curve to understand your client’s tax issues. And from day one, can work with you to create the most effective strategy for your client.
I know my role. I respect the relationship you have with your client, and I’ll go to bat for you both every day. No one can guarantee results. But I will be here for you every day, working hard to tell your client’s story effectively in court. I know how busy the IRS and Missouri tax authorities are, so I’ll make it easier for them to understand your perspective.
Most of all, I keep my word. I do what I say I’ll do and will keep you and your client informed every step of the way. (After all, tax court is a marathon—not a sprint.) I return calls within 24 hours. I meet my deadlines. And I pledge to earn the trust you have placed in me, every day.
Tax court is challenging enough. Your tax attorney shouldn’t be. Let me show you the difference the right experience—and the right attitude—can make.
