The Dentist Hates Going to the Accountant
It is very common to hear people say they hate going to the dentist. I hate going to the dentist. When I was 18 I was referred by my dentist to go see the oral surgeon because I needed to have 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled. Because all 4 teeth were impacted, I was given general anesthesia. In the middle of the procedure I woke up screaming, watching the surgeon and nurse scrambling to get more so they can knock me back out. What, they had to go find the anesthesia? Why weren’t they prepared for just this thing? After that incident, every time I went to the dentist I was afraid that I was going to be “referred” for another horrible procedure. That is why I found great pleasure in my new client, a dentist, say that he “hates going to the Accountant”. Hah, there is a God!
Usually when we hate going “somewhere” it’s because we had a horrible experience – just like mine at the oral surgeon. After reviewing the past few years of my new client’s taxes I could see why. On average he was paying $75,000 a year with 2009 taxes being $95,000 – OUCH!
After sitting down with my client and his wife I began to ask them quite a few questions. Just by putting together a simple tax plan they will be saving $30,000 in taxes a year! The first question they had was “Why didn’t anyone else show us this?” My response, “Why didn’t you question the amount of money you were paying every year in taxes?” Their answer, “I just thought that was the way it was supposed to be.”
How high is your pain tolerance? I know mine is pretty high. I also know if every visit to my dentist resulted in my having to have a root canal, I would start to wonder and get a second opinion. Shouldn’t that be the same for your taxes? Nowhere in the Sixteenth Amendment did I read that a taxpayer needs to pay tens of thousands of dollars in federal income tax so why is it the “way it is supposed to be”?
With my new client, I can’t erase all the painful memories he has seeing his old accountant just like my new dentist can’t erase my painful memory, however I am able to give my client new memories – saving $30,000 in taxes a year!
Are you ready to end the pain?
