Greetings! Welcome to positive change. Relief from the pressure of having that gigantic IRS elephant on your back is what this blog is all about. I will show you different ways that you can resolve your IRS debt and regain your peace of mind. To begin, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
It brings me tremendous joy when someone is talking to me and says, “I’ve never told anyone this before.” It has happened many times in my life. I love to connect on that kind of a soulful level. When someone says that to me I know that safety is firmly in place and healthful and healing communications have begun.
I’ve found that when people are having difficulties with the IRS it is very helpful if they feel comfortable discussing the “deep dark secret” that they have been harboring, sometimes for many years. I had a client recently who had not filed a tax return in eighteen years. It was very rewarding to see the relief show in his face and hear him talk about how his life is changing in many positive ways – especially when I got the wage garnishments stopped. Another change for him is that, after almost twenty years, he will be able to have a checking account!
I was born in Oakland, CA and have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area all of my life. I restored pianos (rebuilding and refinishing) for twenty-five years before I got involved with tax preparation and helping people get out of trouble with the IRS by helping them achieve tax relief. It has been seventeen fabulous years of seeing people transcend from sleepless nights to a comfortable existence. Speaking of transcending, on September 27, 2014, my sweetheart Julie and I married. We are a prime example of my second-favorite saying, which is my own saying, “Young love is sweeter yet in middle age”. My favorite saying is, “Never regret growing older, ’tis a privilege denied to many”.
On this page is a link to a video of Julie and I singing the song, “Somos El Barco” which has lyrics in Spanish and English.
A word, if I may, about the name of my business, Financial Harmony Tax Resolution. The Tax Resolution part is easy to figure out. The Financial Harmony part is a combination of my love for music and math. I write music, play guitar and recorder, and sing at church and with the Berkeley Broadway Singers. And math has always been one of my favorite subjects. It seems, also, that the name Financial Harmony is a combination of right and left brain, emotional and logical if you will. I had a college professor once who told me that I have a personality that combines the right and left brain.
The blogs that are to come have, as a foundation, the goal of achieving peace of mind and relieving the stress that is associated with IRS problems. Some of the areas that I will write about are: Offers in Compromise, Installment Agreements, stopping wage garnishments and levies, and many more subjects to help you get relief from your IRS problems.
I am rewarded deeply when I can help someone find relief by getting the gigantic IRS elephant off of their back. If you will, have a soulful conversation with yourself, make the commitment to change your situation, and then proceed on your journey to restore your peace of mind. These blogs are designed to give you the tools necessary to file the papers to bring that fabulous relief to your life!
Enjoy Julie’s and my music and enjoy the blogs!
