"We can't thank Karena at Burgess Tax Relief enough for her services. Not only did she thoroughly review our documents, but she asked questions that demonstrated that she had deep concern about the outcome of our tax preparation. She performed her fiduciary duty without any hesitation and advised our family in the course that best suited our personal needs during a very trying phase of our lives. Her compassion, patience, and dedication are unmatched and seldom replicated in an industry that is very difficult for most people to navigate. After receiving advice from another agent, we discovered we'd been given direction that could have severe and negative consequences to us in the future. Without Karena and her expertise, I don't know where we'd be! Thank you again, Karena. You are a class above!"

Absolutely! I am an enrolled agent. 

Tax representation is when you face the IRS about a tax issue. Enrolled Agents face the IRS on behalf of their clients to handle their tax issues, providing them with tax relief. All Enrolled Agents have passed testing on representation and the tax law surrounding it.

Taxpayers who find themselves receiving love letters from the IRS are allowed to represent themselves. However, most taxpayers don’t have a clue where to start. Having a credentialed tax professional provide representation gives the taxpayer a guide to navigate the process or fight on their behalf.

Nope! As an Enrolled Agent I am authorized by the IRS to help clients in all 50 states. Though Burgess Financial is physically in Texas, we are a 100% virtual firm.
