I can do my taxes cheaper elsewhere!

I bet you can! Then why not? Simple answer: money. YOUR money!

At REI Tax Firm we do one thing only, and we do it extremely well: we help real estate investors minimize their IRS taxes.

This is what happens when you try to “save money” by going to people who do not understand real estate. Here is a screenshot of my email exchange with a new client who switched to us for 2014 tax returns. Obviously, this is a big-time investor with multiple REI companies. My comments are in black. Client’s responses are (fittingly) in red.

Michael Plaks new client mess

Look at my yellow highlights:

  • Several businesses were reported on the wrong schedules
  • A business that had been closed the year before still found its way on the current tax return
  • $40k – $40,000! – of expenses are a complete mystery for the client and could be bogus
  • Huge IRS audit flags everywhere

But one thing is for sure: the charges for this “tax preparation” were lower than mine. However, how much those awful tax returns actually cost the client? Exactly!

If you don’t want such mess and prefer expert tax preparation – our top-rated REI Tax Firm is only a click away!
