About Me


Rose Westwood



My goal is to help you pay the correct amount of taxes –
no less than you ought to, and no more than you have to.

I will explain things in a way that you can understand. I want my clients to understand everything I do, and receive useful information so that they can make good financial personal and business decisions.

There are at least 54,846 pages of federal tax rules. Cybernetic brain implants not being readily available just yet, I do not have the whole thing memorized. Even if I did, Congress is busy changing some part of it as you are reading this. If I don’t know the answer to your question, I will tell you so, and look it up.

If you are wondering why the ability to find answers to tax questions is a skill worth paying for, try it yourself. Suppose you have a delivery van that you use for your business, and you decide to sell it.  What’s the correct way to report this transaction on your taxes?

Here’s the IRS website: http://www.irs.gov/

There’s a search box in the corner – go try to find the answer.

Back now? Was it easy to figure out, or are you frustrated & confused? If you found it difficult and confusing, that’s why I had to spend 5 years going to college to learn about this stuff. And that knowledge is why my services are worth paying for.
