Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions doesn’t name names but he does share real life cases of tax preparers who have been indicted and convicted of tax fraud across the country to impress upon his readers the importance of selecting tax preparers who are beyond reproach.
Houston, TX – November 25, 2015 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new article entitled “Be Careful Who You Choose to Do Your Taxes.” While we are still a couple of months away from the start of tax season, it is a subject that is beginning to bubble up to the forefront of many people’s minds. Mr. Fowler’s timely blog serves as a reminder to those who may be seeking the services of a new tax preparer this season.
Fowler writes, “Tax fraud and identity theft has been rampant in the U.S. during the last few years. With sophisticated cyber thieves you never know where you’re likely to be a target.” He continues adding, “One thing you can control is the person or firm you select to do your taxes. Whether it is an independent tax preparer or a well-known company, do your due diligence to find out if they have been involved in any tax fraud schemes. You’d be surprised how many tax preparers around the country have been arrested and convicted of various forms of tax fraud and identity theft.”
As Fowler goes on to state, “I offer a few cases of tax preparer fraud without naming names, to give you an example of the types of situations that you could run into when seeking a reputable tax preparer.” He cautions, “If the preparer promises you fantastic returns and asks you to make dishonest claims, that’s the first red flag and you really should run.”
In the end, as Fowler states, “As you can see, tax fraud and identity theft is not limited to stealthy Internet thieves or phone scammers. They can be a little pop-up shop around the corner, maybe even someone you’ve known for years. The best solution is to seek a tax preparer with an exemplary track record and indisputable credentials.” He adds, “Tax season is stressful enough. If you don’t want any more stress in your life and you need a tax preparer, simply call TaxationSolutions. Our reputation speaks for itself.”
