For those who have an interest in my professional services as a CPA, please note that I am currently semi-retired and no longer provide the full scope of tax accounting services that are typical of most CPAs.
About 3/4 of my available time is spent as an
author, seminar instructor and publisher.
As a tax professional, I now limit my work to the preparation of certain information returns required by the U.S. tax law, such as
Because I do not provide other tax accounting services, I now accept new clients only if they have a capable accountant and U.S. tax preparer. If a prospective client does not have a tax accountant, I can refer them to one with whom I've established a working relationship. In other words, I prefer to not charge clients for time spent preparing financial statements, doing currency conversions and computing the gain or loss on security sales. If a business is in need of transfer pricing services, I will refer the business owners to a specialist in that area of international tax law. If taxpayer defense representation services are needed, I encourage clients to seek help from an attorney that specializes in that area of tax law.

In order to have maximum privacy you should seriously consider hiring an attorney who can provide you with a greater degree of confidentiality. I have provided contact information for some of the tax defense attorneys with whom I have worked. If and when delinquent tax returns need to be filed for your offshore activities, these attorneys can retain me to do that work. When I work through an attorney, your legal rights are protected.
