Introduction: Fast, friendly, and accurate. We care about our clients and the service we provide to them! I was on the radio (WNIS, AM790) for 5 years, a call-in show. How many tax people can say that? During the 2019 tax-filing season, I worked part-time as a Turbo Tax consultant, helping TT customers resolve their issues with the program. Through our expertise and knowledge, we are able to help clients resolve severe tax debt - both IRS and state. We negotiate with the tax authorities to get you an affordable plan that you can live with without breaking the bank. I am a sole-practitioner. I like helping people understand their taxes, their situations, and how to avoid paying so much in taxes. I like helping people lift the tax debt burden from their shoulders by negotiating with the IRS to get an installment agreement that is workable for the client.

My association with Ray does not include tax preparation but I have known him for 18 years and I will indeed testify to his intelligence, honesty and professionalism in all his business and personal dealings. He is an accountant who will do the very best he can for all his clients.

I found Mr. Nations through a radio talk-show. I went to him to have taxes filed for my parents. Obviously, Mr. Nations took carw of the paperwork, but what impressed me the most was his pateience and humble attitude despite having such a wealth of knowledge and experience. I will be back next year!

He is incredibly knowledgeable and very on point. Mr. Nations is a bull dog when it comes to getting things done with the IRS! He is one of only a handful of Enrolled Agents that work closely with the IRS and that enables him to be efficient and get results much quicker than you could handling tax issues with the IRS yourself.

Background Check

Raymond Nations


  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have to do at least 30 hours of CPE annually to protect my EA license. Realistically, I always do far more than that, however. I'm also Certified Tax Resolution Specialist(CTRS).

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I've always been a "numbers guy" and enjoy working with people. Tax and accounting was a natural fit for me.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    We have worked with well over a hundred taxpayers who owe tens of thousands to IRS or state. We have worked out installment payments for those clients or other means of resolving those tax debt issues.
