admitted to practice before the irs / mobile services available
Welcome to bodemanntax, where preparing affordable &
accurate tax returns is my goal. Feel free to call or email me anytime. Please review & complete the sections of the 2013
tax organizer that apply to your situation, and review my 2013 client checklist as you gather your records (see below). The
few minutes these steps will take may save you considerable tax dollars.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT MY FEES...
My fees are based upon the forms and schedules I complete
and file on your behalf. The more complex your return, the more it may cost. Having said that, I believe you will find my
fees to be extremely competitive. Please contact me to receive a no-obligation estimate. Have available a copy of last years
tax return and we can discuss what might be different about this years taxes. My fees include all CA related forms and e-filing.
I bill my mobile services at $1/mile. Completed tax returns can be picked up or I will arrange delivery, usually by fedex.
My policy is no return is e-filed until payment is made. You will need to discuss this with me at our initial meeting if this
poses a problem.

WHAT IS AN ENROLLED AGENT?
According to Wikipedia, an Enrolled Agent has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers
before the IRS. Enrolled Agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), are unrestricted as to which taxpayers
they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS office they can practice before. To become an
Enrolled Agent, an applicant must pass the Special Enrollment Examination (which covers individual, business-includes corporations,
estate, gift & trust taxes plus IRS practice and procedures) or present evidence of qualifying experience as a long term
IRS employee. According to the National Association of Enrolled Agents there are about 48,000 currently practicing. If it
is tax preparation or representation you need help with, you can feel confident that you are well represented when you choose
an Enrolled Agent.
OCCUPATIONAL DEDUCTION CHECKLIST
are a variety of occupational deduction checklists that list business expenses common to each occupation. Click on your occupation
to see if you have expenses that may be deductible. Like all areas of tax law, there are exceptions and restrictions to some
of the items on some of the lists. Further, these lists are not intended to be all-inclusive, as tax law is constantly changing.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me for more information and/or clarification.
