Will YOU or YOUR BUSINESS owe the IRS this year?
Elizabeth Johnson – Owner, EMJ Financial Services
Tax Laws Aren’t Fair! Ever wonder why it seems the mega-wealthy and celebrities seem to be the only people living a tax free life? It’s true! Tax laws aren’t fair. They are written to favor people who make money a certain way, and most people are concerned the wealthy aren’t paying their fair tax share. While it’s true the laws might not be fair, the good news is you don’t have to be rich or famous to use the same laws to change the amount of tax you pay. You just have to know how to play the game.
