Frequently Asked Questions?
HOW CAN WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR YOU AND YOUR SMALL-BUSINESS?
Solutions from a IRS Enrolled Agent (EA).
Q. What is an Enrolled Agent (EA)?
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are America's Tax Experts. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. (NAEA Website)
Q. Do I have to visit your office in New York City?
No. Clients never have to visit my office. There are several easy out-sourcing (Virtual) arrangements to choose from which will easily satisfy your operational needs: fax, email, scam, USPS, or secure web portals; many options to choose from.
Q. Do you accept anyone or everyone as a client?
No. I'm selective with whom I work with, preferring to work only with those individuals and small, service-based businesses who serve others. Integrity, trust and Heart-centered are the hallmarks we prefer. That is why we love helping the hard working Mom or Dad, the very small business owner, the work at home mom, the freelancer, the small sub-contractor, the self-employed, and people just like you!

Q. Why do I need Bookkeeping?
You're in business to make a profit while serving others and doing what you do best. How would you ever know how your business is doing financially without bookkeeping? You just cannot run your business sccessfully for long without proper bookkeeping records. Besides the government and tax court decisions require it. And, remember, your tax savings is only as good as your record-keeping or bookkeeping. You just, "Can't have one without the other".
Q. What do you like most about your business?
Just seeing a client's delight when they find solutions instead of chaos, answers instead of stress, a clear path for success instead of guessing. You being able to pay your bills ....
Q. Will I still need a CPA?
If you need audited financial statements. Or if your company is publicly traded on the stock exchange, then you'll need a CPA to provide audited financial statements. We enjoy working with your CPA, and helping to guide you through the bookkeeping process resulting in a painless tax compliance experience. We are not CPAs.
Q. Are there different types (or levels) of Accounting work?
Yes. There are five (5) levels: (1) Bookkeeping, (2) Write-Up, (3) Compilation, (4) Review, and (5) Attestation or the Audit. The Review and/or Attestation/Audit requires a CPA. However, most small businesses are fully served with Bookkeeping and/or Write-Up services. Audits are very expensive!

IS THIS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
Q. Why must I pay Taxes?
It's the Law! "All income from whatever sources are taxable, unless specifically excluded by law." It doesn't matter your age, if you're retired, or if you're on social security. You need a tax professional to look at all the facts and determine if your income is taxable.
Q. Why should I notify my tax professional about changes in my financial life?
You should always consult with your tax professional before undertaking any major financial decisions. It may seem insignificant, but it may cause major problems at tax time.
Q. Why shouldn't I go to the guy down the road (or the person my Uncle tells me about, etc.) who can "fix my taxes" so that I get a much bigger refund?
Listen carefully! Run, and keep running as far as you can, from any such person who dares to call themself a tax-preparer. Prison is not the place you want to end up, as a cellmate, alongside such a felon (pretending to be a tax preparer). At best, the tax penalties - and the Law will catch up to you - will be draconic and severe. Always respect the Tax Code. Honesty is your best policy. A qualified Tax Professional will always keep you in the clear.
Q. I have (or I'm planning on starting) a small business, can you help me with my business taxes also?
Yes. My Business Tax Services and Small Business Bookkeeping/Write-Up Services are geared towards the small business owner and business start-ups. I'll be happy to help you with your small business financial solutions. Why not contact me right away?

Your success is our Success!
A happy,prosperous and successful client is what keeps us in business all these years!
Never thought I would find an Accountant who was interested in my business success almost as much as I do. It helps also that Mr. Cook is a business troubleshooter and money technician.
Thank you Mr. Cook.
