Now available full time

I want to let my clients know that I am now available full time as a tax professional, as opposed to only certain times during the day.

I am now self-employed as a tax and bookkeeping professional available for hire.

Please feel free to contact me for assistance with your tax and bookkeeping needs.

Do you have a power of attorney

In the past year, I have had several clients’ affairs taken over by family members as they have aged and could not handle routine matters by themselves. But over the last month, I have been faced with a significantly more difficult situation. My client suddenly collapsed – he suffered a stroke and at an early age. This was completely unexpected and he has been unable to communicate, even write, since the stroke.

This presents his family with a difficult problem – he has no power of attorney prepared. There is no way for any of his family to handle his affairs without a power of attorney. His bank has had to put his accounts into trust. I, as his tax preparer, can prepare, but can’t file his tax return. I need a signature from an authorized individual and no one is permitted to sign.
