Chicago based accountant with more than 30 years of tax and accounting experience. Works primarily with small businesses, business owners and individuals. Preparation of back-owed taxes is a specialty. Prepare all types of tax returns (income, sales and use, estate/trust, corporate/business, individual, etc.). Tax relief (tax problem resolution) is an area of specialty for both state & federal taxes. This can include filing back taxes, setting up payment plans, preparing an offer-in-compromise (asking for a reduced amount due to financial situation). Accounting & Bookkeeping services are also offered. I've set up clients with new accounting systems, tweaked processes where needed and filled in when bookkeepers are on vacation.
