Dear Friend,

I hope you’ll forgive me for being blunt.

I am Duane Bishoff, I’m a CPA and realize that you may not be used to seeing a tax professional talk like this. It’s not my intention to offend (I’m actually being very careful with my words–I am a tax professional, after all).

But I think you’ll agree that the times we’re currently facing require a little straight talk.

Here’s a certain truth: the State and Federal Government would love to have more of your hard-earned money in their accounts. Sure, even though it’s painful, none of us begrudge paying our legal and fair share of taxes. But the problem is that regular taxpayers, like you, are missing out on legal and safe deductions, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed refunds every year!

As a tax professional, it truly breaks my heart, knowing that just a few thousand, or even a few hundred bucks for us “regular guys” out of that vast pool of overcharging could make a world of difference–and they are just sitting there, unclaimed! And with the economy we’re facing now…it’s essential that the “right” professional handles your taxes and other financial matters.

You see, all tax professionals are not the same. From the “discount” chains (notice the quotes) to classic accounting firms, most fly through tax season in a disorganized mess–bleary-eyed and hopped-up on caffeine. It’s no wonder that they treat you like a number and lapse into excuses and tax-talk. (I told you that I would be blunt.)

I’ve put more of my thoughts on these matters in free reports:

  • Free Report for Individuals:

    “The Top Five Money-Saving IRS ‘Secrets’ for Tough Economic Times”

  • Free White Paper for Businesses:

    “The Top 7 Small Business Strategies for Increasing Profits in a Recession Recovery”

Click the button on this page to request either of these free reports from us, and we’ll rush your copy to you immediately.

Feel free to poke around our site and discover why I’ve been called “The Most Trusted Tax Professional in the Tampa Fl Area.”

Talk again soon,

PPS–Already ready to come in? I don’t blame you…many folks are fed up with the other options out there. Our schedule is very full…but if you call us at 813-356-0400 or Email Us we’ll give you two options for coming in right away! We will NOT make dealing with a tax professional as painful as it’s been in the past!
