  • A little help....

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a tax preparer that specializes in police officers. I need to find a qualified tax professional that could help me in preparing and filing my tax returns. If he/she uses E-file that would be a plus. Thanks..

              My tax guy is GREAT with PO's and Firefighters. He works here in the Mt.Greendwood area (near 111th and pulaski).

              He is an ex IRS Agent, and works with ALOT of police officers, seeing as Mt. Greenwood has alot.

              I have never hadd anyone get me as much bak as this guy does, he knows his way around the tax system.

              If you want his name and # PM me.

                As a tax preparer (and a full time Corrections officer), I can tell you first of all that there is no "specialty" for tax preparation for law enforcement. There are preparers like myself who have a lot of law enforcement clientele, but tax preparers don't specialize in any given occupation. If they tell you they specialize in it, sorry but it's just not true. There are a multitude of deductions law enforcement officers are entitled to year after year (I replied to a post citing many of them on this website). If you only plan to use the standard deduction, you are better off using commercial software. If you are going to itemize and you find a reputable preparer that deals with a lot of your fellow officers, just make sure they are legal...have a license or are premitted by law to prepare taxes, have some sort of error and omissions insurance/bond to guarantee their work, and that they sign the forms prior to getting your signature. I hope this helps as a quick guide, I'd hate to see another officer get steered in the wrong direction.

                          Actually if it was useless...you wouldn't have read it or responded to it. Oh and uh in case you didn't know, taxes are actually a year around business, with only people like myself coming in January-April on the side. And since tax laws change year to year, people tend to have tax questions all year long. I just happen to me more of help here because although I do taxes on the side four months a year, I wear a badge the rest of the time.
