Robert grew to love accounting and found, understanding the complicated matters he encountered at the IRS came quite naturally to him.

Robert’s career with the IRS spanned seven years, during this time he enforced tax law for the IRS and headed various audits targeting: S-corporations, C-corporations, partnerships and individuals. During his time there he was tasked with determining and classifying which tax returns should be selected for audit. The longer Robert worked for the IRS, the more unsettled he became with the aggressive tactics the IRS employs. Instead of enforcing the tax code, he felt like a professional bully. He wanted to help people – not hurt them. One winter morning, Robert was asked to do something that he felt was unconscionable. That very day, he resigned from the IRS.

Federal Tax Professionals provided the opportunity for Robert to apply his inside knowledge and expertise of IRS laws, policies, and audit procedures to safeguard the American taxpayer. Knowing specifically what triggers an IRS audit, Robert has become a cornerstone of, Federal Tax Professionals’s IRS Audit Defense Team. His personal and professional mission is to ensure the taxpayer receives fair and equal treatment, and that, the IRS follows the “Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights” (TABOR). Today, Robert currently uses his skills and abilities to successfully protect American taxpayers from bulling and harassment by the IRS.
