Our IRS Enrolled Agents Can Help with Even the Most Complicated Taxes

Preparing your tax returns is not easy. Many personal tax returns and business tax returns are incredibly complicated. If you try to prepare your tax returns on your own or use tax preparation software, it may lead to many missed deductions or legal errors of tax law that cost you money or increase the probability of an audit. Complicated tax situations need someone with a deep and thorough understanding of tax law to be accurate and legal. If you try to fill out these tax returns on your own, you might make costly mistakes. Unfortunately, that could result in an IRS audit. Instead, what you want is someone with extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of federal income tax law.

An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before. 

Our founder and owner is Enrolled Agent Mr. Robert M. Swaim, MAcc. Mr. Swaim is a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents with a Master’s in Accountancy and a tax concentration. The United States Treasury Department licenses him to represent taxpayers in all federal tax matters before the IRS.  He has a deep knowledge of both state tax and federal tax laws, strong attention to detail, and decades of experience preparing federal, state, and local taxes for all types of clients. He also proudly defends taxpayers against IRS audits and aggressive IRS collection efforts. When you need dependability for even the most complicated taxes, Mr. Swaim is whom you call.

Getting Tax Preparation Near Me is Unique for Everyone

We often find deductions that our clients and even other tax preparers are unaware of or have overlooked. Many write-offs do not show up on online tax preparation software titles like Intuit TurboTax, H&R Block, and TaxSlayer. That is why you should trust only professional tax preparation done by experts. We may be the one guarantee you have that your personal (or business) income tax returns get prepared correctly.

We have extensive experience helping small businesses, their owner and partners, Self-employed professionals, and investors, including:

null
Real estate investors, including brokers, house flippers, landlords, developers, home builders, and commercial builders.
null
Farmers and other individuals engaged in agriculture and agriculture-related activities, including raising horses.
null
Self-employed professionals that own businesses or are partners in one, including architects, engineers, doctors, dentists, veterinarians, farmers, and lawyers.
null
Small business owners in many industries, including retailers, wholesalers, restaurants, payday lenders, construction firms, interior designers, and many others.

We often uncover new deductions for our clients or discover errors that need to be corrected going forward, such as incorrect depreciation periods or a myriad of other items. Some errors are due to mistakes that the client or their accountant (CPA) overlooked. 

More often than not, we can reduce your individual and business tax liability. Many new clients ask us to review and amend their prior-year tax returns. In many cases, we have secured significant tax refunds after reviewing prior-year tax returns. Do you have a prior-year tax return that needs to be reviewed? If so, reach out to us and let us know!

Tax Prep from Swaim & Associates

We work differently from other tax preparers. The way we approach tax prep allows our clients to get the best refunds or minimize what they have to pay after filing their federal tax return or their state tax return. Let our tax pros show you what sets us apart.

We will review all your personal and business financial records: this includes your bank statements, check registers, credit card statements, investment and brokerage account statements, real estate purchases, and other documents. We want to review all of your earned income, business income (flow-throughs), investment income, and your expenses. Our attention to detail enables us to find additional deductions you may be legally entitled to.

We are not the right tax accountants for everyone. If you are a business owner, freelancer, or self-employed taxpayer, or if you routinely face high tax bills, we are the right tax accountant/advisor for you. We will determine if your situation entitles you to a tax credit or additional deductions. We may be able to decrease not only the income tax you pay but the self-employment taxes (Social Security and Medicare) you may owe. 

We make house calls to your home or office if it is more convenient for you. There is no extra charge for this. These visits make it more likely to get all the tax information documents needed to prepare a thorough and complete income tax return. We can go through your bank statements, receipts, HUD closing statements, credit card statements and look for any possible deduction. Set up an appointment with a simple call to our office.

We will answer all your questions. You should fully understand your tax situation and the tax consequences of your personal and business decisions. We can also provide tax help regarding tax penalties for any action you may have taken or are contemplating.
