Hi, I'm Carlotta Thompson, former IRS agent and expert tax strategist.
As a former Internal Revenue Service agent, I worked for the IRS examining and auditing hundreds of businesses. I know the tax code inside and out, so watching entrepreneurs struggle and lose money breaks my heart.
So I am on a mission to change that and give you back your power.
As an agent, I heard the same things over and over again from business owners.
"If only someone would have just taught this!"
"Why doesn't the IRS make us learn this stuff?"
"I wanted to do things right but I just didn't know!"
First of all, let's get one thing clear: As business owners, we are extremely smart.
Yes, I'm talking to you! We have to learn new things constantly to learn and grow to serve our customers better.
Because you are already so far ahead of the curve, I promise that learning this part of your business is not over your head. So I'm here to help you learn how to pay the least amount of tax that you can while keeping yourself out of jail!
Okay, okay, maybe jail is just a little extreme...but I promise that when you make $40,000 a year in your business and an agent hands you a $70,000 tax bill, jail sounds like the best option just to make that nightmare go away.
The sad thing is this is usually the result of the business owner not understanding simple concepts that the IRS expects you to know, because no one taught you.
I have some good news though: the only thing keeping you from understanding these simple concepts (and they are simple, trust me!) that you're expected to know is that no one has taught you.
That's it. That's all. A simple problem and a simple solution! - you just have to learn the concepts.
As entrepreneurs, we think we have to understand every part of our business...all while struggling with feeling inferior about taxes. So let's get one thing straight - you don't need to know the tax code.
(In fact, most accountants don't even know the tax code!)
