Q:

Subject: Excellent Blog

 

Kerry,

 

Congratulations on your successful tax blog. I see you like to other leading industry blogs as well. If you ever get a chance and want to do an article on online tax prep send me an email or give me a call and I’ll be happy to set you up with a free account. We are also developing a modern solution to tax prep, droptax.com which connects real CPAs to people who want to file their taxes online.

 

Online taxes: http://www.efile.com

 

I would rather you trust our service before recommending any types of advertising however let me know if there are any opportunities with your blog.

 

Sincerely,

A:

Thanks for writing and telling me about your web based services.  I visited both of them

As I have frequently discussed the dangers of both e-filing and trying to do tax returns without experienced professional help, it would be hypocritical of me to recommend the use of your efile site; so I’ll pass on that.

I am interested in learning more about your droptax site; so please keep me posted as to when that service is up and running so that I can check it out.

Good luck.

Kerry Kerstetter

 

Follow-Up:

Kerry,

 

Thanks for being open to discussion about dropTax. We are still in the process of lining up our first CPA. Once the dropTax system is in place I will be glad to provide you with any information you need to try it out.

 

I appreciate your time,

 

Business Plan Pro

Taxing Time for Democrats? – A reminder by Michael Barone of what a messy tax planning environment we are looking at over the next few years.  The increasing hit by the Insane AMT, as well as the upcoming expirations of the Bush tax cuts, are going to make realistic tax planning nearly impossible. 

Again, this means more work for us in the tax minimization profession than we have ever seen before.  Each change in the tax code will require more client consultations.  Anyone who worries about being able to earn a good living in the tax business is crazy.
