For Small Businesses

What our Clients are saying

My husband and I started a new business in 2014.  We received 1099’s for almost $200,000 and spent most of the money personally with very little business expenses.  We had a problem due to the fact the IRS would be looking for 40% of that.  In addition to that we had a similar problem for 2015.  We found out that we needed to see an Enrolled Agent and found Rod Vander Kooi, the local Enrolled Agent.

The first thing he pointed out was that our LLC was not set up properly in terms of tax advantages and protection.  He filed the proper forms with the IRS to legally reduce our taxes for future returns.

He then filed our 2014 and 2015 returns to find out what we really owed including penalties and interest.  There was no way we were able to pay that.

He explained that there were different ways to resolve these IRS problems.  He was able to pull all of our IRS transcripts going back to 1990.  I then entered our personal financial information into his specialized software along with what we owed the IRS to have it analyzed to determine what options applied to our situation.

Because of our high income situation he could only resolve it through a installment agreement.  Since it was well over 50,000 we had to get approval from the IRS.  Rod Vander Kooi took care of all the work for the special approval and we resolved it all with monthly payments of $1,330 a month which was far less than we expected and well within our budget.  He then educated us on how not to get into that situation again.
