I spEAk tax!

Thomas Avery Blair, Enrolled Agent

Personal Service to Individuals

Provided Services

I rarely find taxpayers that enjoy reading much about personal income taxes and such, so let me predicate this page with this to-the-point-statement: Most taxpayers are not fluent in another language besides English, but I am.   

No, I certainly do not speak Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, etc., but I do spEAk tax!     After 34 years of successfully dealing with federal and state tax matters for valued individual tax clients, my real skills boil down to the fact that when I read the Internal Revenue Code, tax forms instructions, and "taxation-specific legalese" I can both interpret it, understand it, and use it to help individual taxpayers and their households become and/or remain federally tax compliant for periods in the past, in the present, and even into the future.

 I diligently  spend many hours each and every  year attending "butt-in-the-bucket" seminars relating directly to federal taxation, and I also spend hundreds of hours researching current tax law changes and updates on the Internet from IRS (www.irs.gov), NCPE (www.ncpeFellowship.com) National Association of Tax Professionals (www.natptax.com) and National Accountants Association (www.nsacct,org) .    No one person knows and understands 100% the ever-more-complex Internal Revenue Code, but what I don't know I have resources readily available that help me to learn specifics on almost any tax question that arises.     I could not accomplish that work without a good working knowledge of federal tax law and IRS regulations ... that is why I mention the fact that "I spEAk tax" to explain why most taxpayers appreciate what I can do for them individually and as a member of a freedom-loving American household.

Each of the five named organizations all have research resources I use in the course of each and every tax season to assist my clients in paying only the taxes they owe on time, and then each and every time necessary to avoid interest and penalties for filing erroneous and/or late tax returns.

Here is the "official" definition of my federal license and authorization as an Enrolled Agent:

" A person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified  public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before. Learn more about enrolled agents in Treasury Department Circular 230​(PDF).'

My job in behalf of federal taxpayers involves: (1) (Computerized) tax and refundable credit claims forms preparation for taxpayers, (2) taxpayer representation (as agent for taxpayers fully authorized by federal regulations to deal in behalf of the taxpayers with IRS), and (3) wealth retention consulting (whereby taxpayers can be shown and taught how to ethically minimize their federal tax burdens year after year with specific provisions within the federal Title 26 Internal Revenue Code, as amended from time-to-time).
