Is Taxation Taxing You Up? I’ll Help You. For FREE!

28 August 2007

In addition to the sheer awesomeness I reek of, I could well be the God-sent answer to the individual local taxation problems that you, dear reader, may be burdened with. It has come to my attention that quite a number of my off-line friends almost always turn to me for queries on filing, computation, reference, opinion, past incidences, likely outcomes, and other similar cases or situations related to personal or “individual” taxation. Like they’re my subscribers and I’m their personal Lex Libris or something.
.
Are you bothered by a tax-related inquiry but didn’t know who to ask? Here’s where the pro bono fun part begins. I will, for the first 5 people (I know I first offered this to 20 or so people but let’s see how we could manage with 5 for starters), answer what they need to know and help them in the best of my personal capacity to come up with a remedy or solution to their tax-related problems. The catch is, since this service is free, my end of the bargain will be to help by means of guiding you with what to do moving forward, help you analyze the possible remedies to your dilemma, and help you go about computing your interest and surcharges and penalties arising from your dilemma, if at all there is any. I would like to reiterate that I am not your bitch nor your slave so let us go about this helping-you-out bit in the most civilized and professional manner. I will not be held liable or accountable with the consequences that may arise by your acting in your full capacity with me being your consult but I will exercise the best my expertise has to offer in coming up with a sound proposed solution. Just take this as a venue for your hypothetical questions, if you must.
.
We won’t do textbook taxation here. Textbooks do little to help with its legal-terms, non-customized, and vague stands anyway. And I won’t help you with your school’s taxation problems, OK? This offer is good for those who really need help on money-tax, the thing we get deducted with on a monthly basis for compensation income earners and the thing we have to pay in quarterly and annual terms for those deriving incomes from sources other than purely compensation.
.
As taxation almost always requires actual figures that are revenue and expense related, should your inquiry require that you provide numbers, you may substitute your digits with made-up ones. Be wary, however, that since a graduated tax-rate is used in taxation locally, unless it’s fixed percentage tax we are dealing with, whatever taxable figure and tax-amount we come up with might be different, depending whether the hypothetical number you have provided falls in a higher or lower tax bracket than what is used in your example as this will be the basis for my computation.
.
I still recommend that you consult with your hired accountants and have them give you sound advice. They are after all paid to know what they are doing and are thus required more to do a great job at it. May this be your, should we say, second opinion.
.
This “service” might not come again, depending on my work-load. Should you be so ashamed to let other people know that you have asked a mere Fritzified, you may email me your queries directly at admin [at] fritzified [dot] com. Rest assured, lest my professional license be rebuked, or worst revoked,  that everything between me and my pseudo-client will be treated with utmost confidentiality. Even your identity. Quality high-level professionalism and it’s finest for free!
.
As for the turn-around time, give me a week or two to come back to you. Leave a comment here if you have submitted or are planning to submit an inquiry. Make it anonymous if you don’t like your identity disclosed.
.
As for my credentials: 4 years of individual tax advocacy expertise from working with the best accounting firm in the country, having a range of individual clients either self-employed or employed by manufacturing, power, airline, banking, and stock brokering companies, and individual business income earners, both multinational and local. Also, I have several years under my belt with two other multinational companies working in a function closely associated with individual local taxation.
.
Either leave me a comment or email me your inquiry. Be sure to put in as much detail of the situation as you can because, with much probability, your case will be different from that of others.
.
So what’s the catch? NOTHING. Just do not expect me to teach you how to evade taxes because I was not trained to do that.
.
If this exercise has helped you in any way, just pay it forward.
