I enjoy helping people. I learned a long time ago, that people can tell if you are interested in them or their money. I have had good relations with both the IRS as well as my clients. The IRS knew that a tax return prepared by me was an honest tax return. That doesn't mean that I prepare tax return to the IRS benefit. Instead I discuss potential problems with my client and let them know that I will stand by them which ever way they determined to go.
q & a
What characteristics do your favorite clients share?
They come to me for advice before acting. That way, I can help them make the decision that best fits their tax situation
Why should a client hire you?
Because if I don't know the answer, I will find the answer. I never claimed to know everything but I am always willing to learn.
Describe a time where you went beyond expectations when working with a client.
I went back several years of tax returns and got the client back money that they overpaid. This client lived over 100 miles from my house.
