With over 30 years of experience in the tax and accounting field, I offer a well-rounded and unique skillset and expertise as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), former IRS agent, executive editor of tax in corporate America, former accounting professor, leadership coach, and entrepreneur that has brought much success and freedom in my life and many lessons learned along the way. It is my passion and heart’s desire to help you do the same. As a former Revenue Agent with the IRS for over 15 years and significant experience representing clients before the IRS and preparing tax returns in my own company, the WebCPA Virtual Tax Clinic, I understand complex tax laws, know the ins and outs of dealing with the IRS, and have helped many individuals and businesses save money, alleviate stress, solve their IRS problems, and make sound decisions.
With my experience as a CPA and executive editor of tax, I am a recognized IRS practice and procedures expert, thought-leader, and author with the unique ability to dissect complex tax laws and procedures and translate them into easy-to-understand guidance for other CPAs to assist their clients with tax matters, individuals, and businesses. I have written articles that have been featured in several accounting magazine outlets (Accounting Today, Accounting Web, CPA Advisor) and I am a sought-after tax expert that have been quoted in articles written by CNBC and CNN news reporters. I am a frequent speaker at tax and accounting conferences and the creator and author of the YouTube Channel, Tax Playbook, where I provide tips and strategies for individuals and businesses to win in taxes.
