24 Apr Better Than Luck
With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, we’re bound to see plenty of four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, pots of gold, and other images of good fortune. No disrespect to the Irish, but I put little to no stock in the concept of luck. I certainly believe in one’s ability to change their fortune for the better, but this kind of transformation has to come about through hard work and due diligence rather than simply stumbling across the end of a rainbow.
” These aren’t lucky charms, and I’m certainly no leprechaun — they are processes that exist within the tax code to help people in need.”
Being in my line of work quickly cures you of any illusions about silver bullets or fairy dust. When you find yourself in a hole with the IRS, the only things that will allow you to climb out are knowledge and hard work. I often get to see folks change their situations for the better when they once thought it was impossible. Witnessing that kind of success and being able to help it come about is my favorite part of my job.
While arbitrary “good luck” may not be a force in the world, misfortune certainly is. Most folks who come to my door have been dealt more than a few bad hands. In these situations, it can be difficult to know how to even begin breaking that downward spiral. I’ve had clients say they felt like they were “at the bottom of a well.” I try to help them understand that, by seeking help, they’ve already taken their first step toward pulling themselves out.
Often, what leads people to the feeling that they are trapped in a hole is a lack of knowledge. As someone who was wrongly bullied by the IRS myself, I know how intimidating it can be to have agents show up on your doorstep or leave you threatening voicemails. If it wasn’t for my background in tax law, I would have been paralyzed by the thought of dealing with their astronomic demands.
That’s why I founded Golden Tax Relief. There are avenues that lead to getting back in good standing, ones the IRS does a poor job of educating people on. These aren’t lucky charms, and I’m certainly no leprechaun — they are processes that exist within the tax code to help people in need. At the end of the day, it still rests on you to take action and lift yourself into good standing.
Of course, my team and I will be there with you every step of the way. We’re here to give you the resources, tools, and advice you need to move forward. Those who have the most success in our process internalize this, recognizing that tax relief is a team effort. You don’t need a horseshoe or monkey’s paw to get the IRS off your back. All you need is a knowledgeable guide, good communication, and the will to change your situation.
