By Nataliya Isom, CPA helping taxpayers with IRS problems
    A taxpayer may always stand for themselves before the IRS. However, many taxpayers find dealing with the IRS frustrating, time-consuming, frightening or all the above. The drawbacks of a taxpayer representing themselves are many: The taxpayer does not have the specialist's knowledge or realize what the choices are or how to get the lowest arrangement permitted by law. Three out of five Offers-In-Compromise presented by the taxpayer are denied by the IRS. Many taxpayer - negotiated offers bid to the IRS significantly more than is mandatory by law. The taxpayer may be too scared, exasperated or overwhelmed by the IRS to bargain a resolution successfully or contentedly. Most taxpayers are far better-off keeping their distance from the IRS and many prefer to leave the wrangling to their...

Tax resolution is the process of developing and executing a solution to resolve a taxpayer’s IRS problem for both individuals and businesses. In the truest sense, the ideal resolution will solve the challenge permanently and settle the tax burden for the lowest amount allowed by law.There are quite a few distinct possibilities the taxpayer has at their disposal to sort out their tax problem with the IRS. However, relatively few taxpayers are aware of the options. Often, the taxpayer is not effectively informed by the IRS of all alternatives, let alone which option may best match the taxpayer’s individual situation. This is notwithstanding both guidance and rules from the U.S. Senate Finance Committee overseeing the IRS.Amond resolution choices are filing missing tax returns, disputing t...

I know it's Wordless Wednesday and this photo speaks all for itself, but how amazing that we can live in such beautiful places and sometimes take it for granted. With so much going on in the world from COVID to Politics we seem to be noticing less and less the beauty around us and all that we truly have to be thankful for. It's no wonder we often see the light at the end of the tunnel as the train coming to get us. Nature is so peaceful and so calming. How often do you get to sit with it? How often do you make time for it? Many are stuck in front of TV screens, computer monitors and cell phones. We sit there like something is going to change and in some ways it does. But, the only real thing that changes is our mindset and how we start to look at the world or the things around us becaus...

The Lake Arrowhead Real Estate market is hot. There seems to be more buyers than sellers, but when homes are listed at the right price and the house is marketed correctly, you attract the right buyers for the sale. Not every marketing strategy is right for every house being sold. A lot of factors go into the who, what, when and where's of marketing a home. From price to location. This is why you want and need an experienced, licensed Realtor working for you.  This home went pending in 18 days. Why? Because it was priced right it's features were marketed and it was marketed to the right buyers. If you want to sell your home, give me a call. No hassle, no obligation and no fuss. Let's talk about how we can market your home and the best price for getting the home sold like I have this one ...

I see some of the coolest things in my travels but the wildlife is one of my favorites. Here is Mommy and baby deer ( little old Bambi :) ) just out for a stroll in the gorgeous weather! Some cool facts that I learned about deer ( because I love to google stuff ) is that the first deer was found about 4 million years ago. Wait, what? Yep. Scientist believe that deer once inhabited bitter-cold regions around the artic circle.Deer are also the only animal that has antlers and they are the fastest growing living tissue on earth. Antlers are mainly on male deer however, other species like the caribou, the females can also have antlers. Another fun fact....The caribou (aka reindeer) have been domesticated! Who wouldn't love to have a reindeer as a pet?

It's that time of year when everyone is pulling out the pumpkins, ghosts and goblins. The air is crisp and the leaves are changing colors. This year the fall trends are full of style and they may be worth taking a look at especially if you are selling your house time of year. It doesn't matter if you live in the mountains of California or the desert of Arizona, these fall trends will make any living space trendy! The colors are neutral and pair well with this just about any style or color you currently have in your home. There is lots of texturing and layering and rattan accents as well. Knit pillow covers in burlap, plaid, rust and gray colors are really popular this year. Clay is another great color this fall season. Accent rugs in this color will make a room pop and it looks great ag...

Fall is in the air! Leaves are turning and the color brilliance is picture worthy. This time of year the air gets crisp and so does our desire for homemade baked goods, but some find it hard to find the time. You can have the best of both worlds. Enjoy fresh baked seasonal breads that are perfect for breakfast and snacking and enjoy the fresh smell of baked goods at home without even having to bake! What? That's right. Goodwin & Son's market offers made from scratch and gluten-free baked breads. With savory flavors of banana, snicker doodle, chocolate banana, peach, orange, cranberry, zucchini, pumpkin and more! These seasonal flavors are perfect for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee and great for a late night snack with some hot cocoa. Not far from Goodwin's you can visit I Love Candl...

I know it's an odd title and even more of an odd question. But, I am addressing this because I've had a lot of first time home-buyers make statements like " I've been renting for years, why is it so hard to get a mortgage when I've been paying for years" or a statement like " It's like jumping through hoops to get a mortgage. I've been paying rent, isn't it the same thing?". Actually, no it's not. It isn't the same at all. In fact renting a home is very different than owning a home. Here is why.  First, when you are renting you are paying someone Else's mortgage and/or providing a second income or savings for the homeowner in the event there home is paid for. Regardless of whether you pay rent or not, the homeowner still has an obligation to his mortgage, taxes, insurance and repairs. W...

One of the best parts of being a Realtor is making dreams come true. Every time a home is sold or purchased that's exactly what we do.

Whatever your story is or whatever new chapter you're about to start, I will help you every step of the way and be there long after our business transaction is over. I'm ...

We are still learning a lot about Prescott, AZ, but the journey has been amazing. The night sky is absolutely beautiful, in fact, picture perfect. Prescott, AZ living is surely different than what I am accustom to on the mountain in Lake Arrowhead, but the beauty is impeccable. While both areas are beautiful in their own way, you really cannot compare the two because they are each so unique.  I love strolling through downtown Prescott and seeing all of the monuments and statues that do not seem to be a rarity around here. In fact, everywhere I go there seems to be some sort of statue that represents its rich town history or a statue that pays tribute to Veteran's or Wars. They are each mighty in their beauty and a true testament to the pride that Prescott takes in remembrance and honor....

I saw this today and it really hit home. Today is the eve of 911 and at this very moment there are parents reading their children bedtime stories. There are husbands and wives rushing to complete last minute packing. Somewhere there is a firefighter hoping for a decent night sleep on a cot somewhere in the firehouse and there is a hospital praying for a slow night. This is life as many of us know it. We go about our day and our nights like we will get a thousand more never once stopping to think it could very well be our last. Who thinks like that anyway? I know all about how we are suppose to live for today, seizing moments and being thankful for the day and not worrying about tomorrow because mostly tomorrow is out of our control, but.....This poem says it all. None of us knew what 9-...

Lake Arrowhead mountain cabins never last long. From big to small they always find a happy new owner. For the previous owner they are happy to start their new chapter in life, but at the same time it is always hard to close the last one. The adventures never end, though. Whether you are living on the mountain surrounded by its beautiful nature or moving along to a new home, in a new place, the adventures are amazing and the memories made last a lifetime. Mountain living is peaceful as nature engulfs you. From the mature trees and mountain views to watching the sunset and sunrise. Down off the mountain there is plenty to do as you relax by the lake, dine or shop. From skiing to paddle boarding there is so much to do. Then you can retreat back on top of your mountain away from the hussle ...
