Lobbying Efforts

My clients are some of the smartest individuals I know. They are professors, surgeons, lawyers, executives, masters in their fields. Yet, due to the extremely complex and time consuming ordeal of preparing a US tax return, these same individuals need to hire a professional. The US has an entire industry of tax preparers and attorneys whose only job is to help people understand the tax laws and calculate their taxes. How insane is this situation? Most professionals would never openly advocate against their own profession, but I guess that makes me different (or crazy).

I honestly believe that in the perfect world my firm’s tax services would not be needed by a majority of taxpayers, and instead I would be helping my clients to save their money and plan for their futures. The calculation of income taxes should be transparent, easy to understand and not so time consuming. At Krozel Capital we argue this point openly in blog posts, letters to Congressional leaders and articles. We encourage our clients to stay informed on tax issues by providing them the facts they need and we encourage our US citizen clients to vote in elections and have their voices heard.
