Well, the holidays are over and
it will be tax time in a few weeks! I hope you enjoyed the time spent with
family and friends.
This is not a scare but a new reality. Iím writing to let you know
that more and more clients will be getting notices from the IRS and State
Tax Agencies. You know the ones that start with: Dear Taxpayer: Your
return has been selected for auditÖ..
Answering these letters is very important, since no-response can
trigger a full scale audit. The only problem is these letters, telephone
calls, research and audits take a lot of time. Since time is all we have to
sell, we have to bill our clients for these services. This has gotten a few
clients upset. They understand, but writing us a big check only adds insult
So, we are offering you a service
agreement to cover audits and notices!
Itís kind of like insurance, pay a small amount to cover a big
risk, and then hope you donít need to use it! (Hey, I have paid fire
insurance on my house for years, but I sure hope I never need to use it!)
The guarantee is enclosed. It discusses everything it covers and
the price. Itís a small price to pay and you will be thanking yourself
when you get that fat letter from the IRS.
To be fair to us, we canít leave this offer open forever. Someone
could wait until they got a notice, buy the guarantee and call us a few days
later to handle the paperwork!
So hereís the deal, fill out the guarantee and
mail, fax or drop it off at our office by
23th, 2017. After that date we canít and wonít make the offer
again. If we have to go to bat for you against the IRS or our team members
need to sit on the phone for an hour or so waiting to talk to an agent,
you have to understand that there will be a charge. $100 minimum
per hour spent resolving the notice, paid up front. (Of course, there is no
charge if the notice is our fault.) IRS audits require a
to start and are billed at $175 per hour, plus any out of
pocket expenses. Office consultations are $100 each. We are including one
free office consultation (a $100
value) with the purchase of the Peace of Mind Guarantee.
Thanks for understanding and thanks for being such a great client!
Have a hassle free 2017 tax year.
Please disregard this if
you already signed up.
Michael Uadiale, CPA
P.S. I forgot to mention ... the cost of the plan is tax deductible!
