The Power Up Difference

Most tax preparers are order takers. If you are lucky, they might try and find a few last-minute tax strategies. The problem with both of those scenarios is you lose out on significant planning opportunities which could amount to paying thousands of dollars of additional taxes. Take the power back and have a tax planning strategy that maximizes your financial life.
