About Us

Val Smith-Fulcher, EA

It’s great to meet you!

I am an Enrolled Agent and a 30+ year veteran of the tax industry. I actually started by being volunteered to do taxes while in the U.S. Air Force. Later, while working in the real estate industry, I became the office tax expert because I would actually research my client’s tax questions.

A few years later, a co-worker said, “You know you could actually be paid to do taxes.” That prompted me to take a tax course – well, that and the fact that the local real estate market was in the tank.

I’ve now seen the tax business as a taxpayer, tax preparer, IRS rep and franchise owner/operator. At all times it was my mission to find and take advantage of every legal tax advantage for my clients. This may be why I was not so comfortable when the IRS tried to train me in collections.

Anyway, after five interesting years, I left the IRS (in 2004) and immediately opened my own Tax office, where I still enjoy fulfilling my mission.

Over the last 25 years I have developed a unique set of skills and experiences in IRS audit, collections and representation for both individuals and small businesses.

Let Us Help:


‘Closers’ have run their numbers, and they know that certain IRS problems can net them big fees. Sure, they’ll quote you a smaller fee during the so-called “financial analysis” in the beginning stages of the process – but they also know that there are lots of different ways that they can tack on additional fees during the process so that no matter what, they will get paid.

My team and I would like to invite you into a different kind of process.

Mind you – we are BULLDOGS when it comes to negotiating on behalf of our clients in front of the IRS. We have plenty of stories to prove it.

We want to fight for you – and you will never have to speak with the IRS yourself.

PS — If you are discussing your tax situation over the telephone with other firms, be sure to ask them one important question:

“Are you a licensed tax professional that is legally eligible to offer me tax advice, or are you a salesman?”

This is by far the single most important question you should ask anybody trying to offer you tax advice. If they are a salesperson, I highly encourage you to run quickly in the opposite direction.

PPS – Already ready to come in?
