The Goldberg Tax Practice, LLC
About this pro
I am a professional tax practitioner and enrolled agent (EA) who's licensed to practice before the IRS. I have over 35 years of experience in providing a full range of tax services, from tax return preparation to tax planning and IRS representation, while protecting your interests when dealing with the IRS. I specialize in complex multistate returns for the military, law enforcement, and performing artist communities. EAs are licensed by the IRS only after passing all parts of a comprehensive three-part written IRS exam and having a favorable outcome from a background check. The practice privileges afforded to EAs are identical to those afforded to CPAs and attorneys at all levels at the IRS. EAs are required to earn 72 credits of continuing education every three years. Maintaining my membership in the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) requires me to earn at least 30 continuing education credits annually.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?In 1972, H&R Block made some mistakes on my tax return; and I thought "I can do better than that." I studied first year accounting and tax law in college, was a preparer at Block the next tax season; and after the season I was hired as a Block manager and was teaching the Block course. Two years later I went out on my own.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?Based on a recommendation, a couple from California asked me to review their 2011 1040 return that was prepared by a CPA and already timely filed. I asked them if there was a particular issue or something out of the ordinary about their return, and they told me they had a cancellation of debt related to the short sale of a rental property. I asked if the CPA asked them a lot of questions, and they responded that they sat in front of him as he completed their return in thirty minutes and didn't ask a single question. Ding-ding - the warning bells were going off in my head. The bottom line was that the original returns filed OVERSTATED their tax liability by some $35,000 between the Federal and California returns; simply because the CPA was ignorant of the correct tax treatment for such a transaction, I prepared amended returns reflecting the correct tax treatment (along with a very detailed nineteen-page explanation of the compound changes), the IRS performed a full audit of the amendment, and the IRS accepted the amendment as filed. California followed suit. My clients received refunds of the full amount of tax overstated on their CPA-prepared returns, plus interest.
