If so, don't panic -- and don't call the IRS!

You are in good company - the IRS sends out millions of letters and notices each year, and many times, they contain inaccuracies!
The first thing to do is CALL your accountant.  Don't call the IRS, don't write to them, don't send them money - call your accountant.
If you don't have one, call ME.  We can make dealing with the IRS simple and painless.

Going "Green" Might Just Save You Money!
green carNeed a new car?  Why not consider a Mini-E, an Audi-A1 Sportback, a Ford Focus, a Toyota Prius Plug-in, or one of the many other plug-in vehicles now on the market (a list is available at and save some money on your taxes.
The IRS now provides a tax credit of between $2,500 and $7,500 for the purchase of a plug-in, depending on the battery capacity.  But, don't hesitate, it is only available on the first 200,000 vehicles sold by each manufacturer. 
Can't afford a new one?  Buy a conversion kit and create your own plug-in - you still may be eligible for a credit of up to $4,000!
