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.
