Whether you pay taxes or should have paid taxes, you probably need me.

I’m Tom Butler. I started Acumen Accounting in 2008 to focus on three specialties.

First, I help people resolve their problems with the IRS. I’m excellent at it, and even the messiest situations have an answer. It’s a complicated process. Most tax pros either do not or will not help taxpayers in trouble beyond writing a letter or two or filing old returns. Those firms that advertise nationally usually make false promises, hire unqualified staff that cannot legally represent taxpayers and give terrible service, and charge outrageous fees that keep increasing over time. I am an enrolled tax professional who is licensed to represent taxpayers and negotiate on their behalf. And yes, I’ll also help you if you owe less than $10,000. Even if you don’t engage me, you’ll know your options and the best way to proceed.

Second, since you can’t resolve tax problems unless you know tax preparation and the law better than everyone else, I also prepare well over 150 income tax returns every year by myself. I handle personal income tax returns, LLC/partnership returns, corporate returns, estates, payroll taxes, sales taxes, or any other kind of tax return. It’s much more than putting numbers into software. Each income tax return I prepare includes a custom-written commentary by me which contains explanations of your current situation and planning suggestions to minimize your tax burden in the future.

Third, I know the accounting and financial issues that small companies face, and I focus on the accounting and financial needs of small businesses. My entire career has centered on small business. I’ve been a small business owner since 2001. There are always challenges with cash, tax planning, insurance, internal systems, payroll, and more. I understand the issues that business owners face. I provide accounting and consulting services to the small business community.

I never charge for an initial consultation, and I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your specific needs. I will give you a fair and honest assessment of your situation and options. Complicated situations don’t intimidate me. With current technology, I can serve you whether you are in Loudoun County, Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, or anywhere else in the DC metropolitan area.

My job is to give people peace of mind about their tax and financial situation. You deserve to be served by a professional who looks out for your best interest. Let’s talk about how I can serve you.
