Hi @Peter_Rehm, I really am sympathetic to all those out there struggling with the tax code and trying to report their cryptocurrency correctly. While I’m part of those CPA firms that do a kick-butt job but just don’t make economical sense for the micro Bitcoin HODLer, I do offer at least free consultations.
Free consultations are the least I can do. I got into tax to help people and if someone just has a couple questions or needs a point in the right direction, I would love to jump on a quick call on give them free advice.
I also try to be very transparent and upfront with clients with fees. That last thing I want is for anyone to be surprised. I do this year-round, invested in getting my CPA and MBA, live and work in Seattle where the median house price is 4x that of Atlanta, and work hard to make sure I provide proactive advice and tax planning for my clients all year long. So I know I can’t compete on price with small one-man CPA shops in TX that works out of their basement, is only open during tax season, and has a part-time job somewhere else. Likewise, they can’t touch me in terms of quality and expertise, but not everyone needs a high quality tax return and help planning tax strategies. I thrive on complex situations.
Anyway, like I said, if there’s anyone who needs a top-quality consultative phone call (maybe their uncle died and left a bunch of Bitcoin or they started pooling their Ether with some friends from overseas) I’d be more than happy to help and offer a free phone call or consultation!
