I fully believe in and will practice fee-only financial planning. By that I mean that you pay only an hourly fee for services and information based on an hourly fee or a fixed fee for more complex plans and/or services. I will not try to sell you any kind of financial product, which allows us the flexibility to consider any and all products in the market for you to choose or not to choose. I believe that this model significantly reduces any conflict of interest between recommending a product that is best for you, or recommending a product that pays a high commission. I will receive no commissions at any time. I also believe that a fee-only structure is familiar to most people: many professionals charge in this manner such as attorneys and accountants. VSFS will not assume control of your assets or conduct transactions on your part—we can assist and guide you but you make the final decisions.

Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards; as such, individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to stringent ethical standards, and complete 72 hours of continuing education every three years to maintain their licenses. Enrolled agents advise, represent and prepare tax returns of individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts and any other entity with tax reporting requirements. EAs prepare millions of tax returns each year and their expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers audited by the IRS. EAs are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. As an Enrolled Agent, I am licensed to offer the aforementioned specialized services to you.
