I have used Poulos Accounting & Consulting for more than 11 years for taxes, advice, etc. I would not begin to consider using anyone else's services. Andrew Poulos is not only a competent, thorough and caring professional, but his low-key approach always takes the sting out of the tax time anxiety we all have experienced. I have referred my entire family to him and, we all highly recommend him and the excellent services he provides. Thank you Andrew!

Working with Mic as a career / business coach has been extremely helpful: first in helping me to define the problems & challenges on which I need to work in order to reach my objectives for 2017. Second in being available to help me with follow-through on those 2017 objectives. I recommend Mic's as a coach for anyone needing core, honest, actionable coaching on career, leadership, and business endeavors.

I came to Mohamed 3 years ago because my business was getting audited by the IRS. He did a offer with the IRS and was able to reduce the monthly payment and overall debt. He cleaned up my books and did my financial statements. Everything about him, the process and how long it would take was up front. Now that my business in order he does my bookkeeping and give me great business consult.

Graduate Teaching Assignments During the past ten years, I have taught over 100 courses in advanced accounting, taxation and business law to graduate business students pursuing either a master of business administration or a master of accounting and finance graduate degree. A brief description of each course is set forth below. Federal Taxes and Management Decisions AC553/AC560 This course, ac553, is the first in a two-course sequence covering federal taxation. This course focuses on individual taxation in the business context-such as self-employed entrepreneur, investor, or employee. It also introduces tax concepts for corporations and s-corporations. The companion course, advanced studies in federal taxes and management decisions, ac560, focuses more intensely on taxation for business activity such as for corporations, partnerships, and other types of business associations. Topics included in this course include an introduction to federal taxation, purpose of taxation, types of taxation, tax avoidance vs. tax evasion, tax research tools and techniques, sources and weight of authority for tax law, individual taxation, taxation of corporations, and taxation of s-corporations, gross income, exclusions from gross income, deductions from gross income, itemized deductions, tax accounting, property transactions - determination of basis, gains and losses, and non-recognition of gains and losses. Advanced studies in federal taxes and management decisions is designed to expand the coverage and complexity of corporate and partnership taxation and introduces topics such as corporate reorganizations, estate and gift taxation, fiduciary accounting, tax-exempt entities and qualified and non-qualified plans. Forensic and Investigatory Accounting AC574 "Forensic" refers to activity that involves investigation done in a legal manner. In the accounting arena this involves, investigating and preventing financial fraud, aiding in resolving disputes, offering support during litigation including expert testimony, valuation calculations and other criminal investigations including terrorist and money-laundering schemes. Forensic accounting is definitely a critical tool in bridging the gap between "number crunching" and legal acceptance of financial evidence, a bridge that is vital in our complex post-enron, post-9/11 global world. Advanced Accounting AC559 This course covers financial accounting practice and theory in relation to consolidations, foreign currency transactions and financial statement translation, partnership accounting and special accounting topics surrounding formation, maintenance, reorganizations and liquidation. Legal, political and ethical dimensions of business GM520 the legal, political and ethical dimensions of business introduces students to the legal, political, and regulatory controls that define, promote and limit business practice opportunities. The fundamental interaction of law, politics, ethics and corporate social responsibility is emphasized. Topics include business and the legal system, foundation of business ethics, the constitution and business, regulatory and administrative agencies, regulation of private business conduct, the employer-employee relationship, the formation and performance of contracts, ownership and control of business, antitrust, trade practices and consumer protection, securities law, land-use and environmental protection, and the legal environment of international business. Business Law GM597 GM597 focuses on those critical relationships that make it possible for a corporation to do business including the ability to contract for goods or services, the need for financial instruments to finance business transactions, and the need to retain security interests in goods sold on credit. The course also includes a serious discussion of how we organize to do business (sole proprietor, partnership or corporation) and the consequences of that decision.
