Steve Moskowitz – Founder of Moskowitz LLP
The government is giving away the store and I know
that in the future there is going to be all kinds of taxes increases.
Right now, there is so much available from the government.
Steve Moskowitz joins us to talk about tax law changes for small business, such as how to get a tax refund from previous years if a business experienced a loss in 2020. As a tax attorney for more than 30 years, Steve knows that clients’ lives – and livelihoods – can be upended or even destroyed when tax trouble arises. With extensive knowledge of tax law, a desire for swift and vigorous defense, and decades of experience with tax authorities and in the courts, he is unusually perceptive in assessing the best way forward, and the right resources to achieve resolution. Steve started Moskowitz LLP because he saw that while big corporations were consistently navigating the tax code to their advantage, smaller businesses and individuals were not. With prior experience as a CPA at a national accounting firm, and with extensive experience in the corporate world, Steve knew he could help smaller businesses and individuals by applying what he knew. He wanted to make a critical difference in businesses and individual lives that protected them from the powerful government and enabled them to keep and enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of work that otherwise could be taken away from clients by the government in just one action. Today – together with a full team of tax attorneys, CPAs, enrolled agents and other professional staff – Moskowitz LLP helps business and individual clients across the country and overseas to resolve a wide variety of tax matters. The Moskowitz LLP team also creates strategies to utilize the tax code and relevant treaties to clients’ benefit, and provides ongoing tax support and tax return preparation. Unlike most firms, Moskowitz LLP clients pay a flat fee and are not subject to hourly rates.
