See the truth is the world is full of CPAs, Enrolled Agents, Accountants, Tax Preparers, who do little more than record history.....putting the right numbers, in the right boxes, in the right forms, by the right deadlines, to keep you out of trouble.
But then they call it a day. Tax preparation and doing the company's financial compliance work is not a substitute for advanced tax planning.
The reason why most accountants don't do more is because they have way too many clients and they simply do not have enough time to learn all of the various strategies from the 72,000+ pages of The Internal Revenue Code. Honestly, it’s not humanly possible for a single person to know all tax strategies!
And because of that, like most high income earners and business owners, it's costing you five, six, or even seven figures every year in taxes you don't need to pay.
The late supreme justice William H Rehnquiest said, "There is nothing wrong with a strategy to avoid the payment of taxes. The internal revenue code doesn't prevent that."
