Kelley Brubaker, CPA

Kelley is our founder and owner.  Kelley is a CPA specializing in IRS and state tax debt collections representation. Kelley’s resume and professional accomplishments can be found on LinkedIn.

A life long resident in the Akron-Cleveland, Ohio area, Kelley enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters and perpetually holds hope that this is the year she will run a sub-30:00 5K.

She began to focus on tax debt resolution work in 2008 when she had begun working with a few new clients within a several month time frame for tax prep services who shared their stories about how frustrated they were in not being able to solve their tax problem themselves.

She was horrified to hear about their conversations with nationally known tax debt resolution companies which were filled with high pressure sales tactics trying to persuade them to send off thousands of dollars with the “guarantee” of pie in the sky solutions these particular clients didn’t qualify for. Luckily, these people were wearing their “BS Detectors” and hung up the phone.

How each of them found Kelley was by chance, but she was intrigued by a whole new world of the IRS she never considered…Collections and Tax Debt Resolution. As a CPA, she was trained to prepare tax returns and support small business back office operations but it was always a foregone conclusion that clients filed their tax returns and paid the tax due.

Kelley dove into researching the tax debt resolution industry and found horror story after horror story about how taxpayers were being mistreated by so called professionals, as well as the IRS. That’s when she decided to specialize to help taxpayers get the help they need.

Certified Public Accountants

Although the accounting profession has been around for thousands of years, the profession began to formally organize into an accredited profession in the USA in 1887 as a way to improve their status and combat criticism of low standards. Certified Public Accountants first gained official recognition by the federal government as a class of professionals when President Calvin Coolidge signed the Revenue Act of 1924 into law. Certified Public Accountants have equal standing with Enrolled Agents and attorneys in representing people in front of the IRS.

Never discuss your tax situation with an unlicensed sales representative. Only a licensed tax professional (CPA, EA, or attorney) can legally give you proper tax advice. We encourage you to verify the license status of ANY tax professional you are considering hiring.
