Seven years ago, I asked Ephy of BattleTax to redo my taxes – after my previous accountant told me I owed the IRS money in a year when I was both self-employed and had seen a reduction in my income. Ephy set us all straight when she redid the numbers – and determined that I qualified for certain deductions that my previous accountant had missed. As a result, the IRS owed me money, not the other way around. I’ve been working with Ephy and BattleTax ever since :-).-Saira N.
