Founder of Advanced Tax Solutions, Certified Public Accountant and Certified Tax Resolution Specialist
Did you know that there is a test that if you pass it you can sue the IRS? You have to fly to Washington to take the test, but if you pass it, you can sue the IRS for abuse of power in collection cases. But before you run out and buy that plane ticket consider that the test has been around since 1942 and only about 300 people have passed it since its inception. On May 8, 2011, Todd became the 298th person to pass that test.
Todd is also a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (which allows him to practice before the IRS anywhere in the nation) and also of the National Association of IRS Problem Solvers. He is an alumni of the prestigious international accounting firm of KPMG Peat Marwick. He has a Masters of Taxation from DU. His personal hobbies include backpacking fly-fishing and hunting. In 1998 Todd took a sabbatical and backpacked the full length of the 2000 mile Appalachian Trail.
