About Larisa

Larisa Humphrey

I started Abundant Returns Tax Service back in 1991 after seeing on TV that Ross Perot, then presidential candidate and CEO of a multi-billion dollar corporation, paid less than $2000 in personal income taxes! I just couldn’t believe it because…I made $35,000 that year & paid more than $4000 in federal taxes alone!!!

I paid MORE THAN DOUBLE the taxes a Billionaire paid!!! I was flabbergasted to say the least.

“He’s a billionaire,” I kept saying to myself. “How is it legal for me to pay more taxes than a billionaire?”

I kept tossing it around in my head. I just couldn’t believe it. I worried about how I was going to pay the rent. I struggled to buy a bus pass every week. I had to make “arrangements” every month to pay my utility bills.

My grocery budget was $15/week and I was paying more income taxes than a billionaire? It made absolutely no sense to me. It still makes no sense to me…more than 20 years later!
(If I think about it long enough, I still get mad.)

This was an “a-ha” moment for me—a life lesson that shattered my very sheltered view of reality. I learned two very valuable lessons—
• Life is not fair and
• People can live tax free!

So I got busy.

I took several income tax preparation courses. I read hundreds of books on taxes. I’ve prepared thousands of tax returns. I worked for the IRS and a local tax office. I learned about taxes and how to use the tax law to my advantage. I learned how to live “tax free” like billionaires do.

Now I’m ready to share that knowledge with you so you can
“Keep More Money In Your Pocket” too.
