WHAT MAKES US CHILD CARE TAX SPECIALISTS
How can we claim that We Are Child Care Tax Specialists? Because Pat Michael understands tax preparation and financial services for child care providers probably better than any other tax preparer you’ve met with. His wife was a provider for more than 25 years so he knows exactly what goes into your business, and he knows every deduction you are eligible for.
For more than 18 years, Pat has been giving seminars for the YMCA Child Resource Services in Mission Valley, San Diego. As part of their licensing & certification training, the CRS considers Pat their subject-matter expert in the field of child care tax preparation, record keeping, audits and general tax law.
He set up his business – more than 30 years ago – on a client-experience model. The office is dedicated to making tax preparation and filing as pain-free as possible. He considers his client testimonials to be his best advertising, and even though Pat and his team go the extra mile to make each client visit as enjoyable as possible (considering the subject, after all), the fact is his clients come for the expertise.
As an Enrolled Agent, Pat is a federally authorized tax practitioner who has the technical expertise in the field of taxation and is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service for audits, collections and appeals. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
