Jim Clark has been preparing my taxes since 1989, and I am guessing that is probably a little bit longer than most of his clients. Before some of you jump up thinking that I am a close friend posting these accolades, that would be the furthest from the truth. I normally see Jim twice a year around tax time and that is it. Do I trust him, not the first couple of years? I would have him prepare my taxes and then go elsewhere providing both the same information. Not only did I compare his prepared tax statement with the other guy but I also took a serious look at what he was charging me. Yep! Your right, the statements he prepared for me were not only more accurate and complete, he did so at a lesser rate. Now those first couple of years, the Staff Judge Advocate was just a couple of doors down and he would review the prepared tax returns and Jim always won (rather I won).I wouldnât say that I have had the simplest of tax returns either. The Tax Preparation for the first couple of years was way more than what I could handle. Just divorced, property settlements, starting a new business (business equipment accusations, setting up depreciation schedules, oil royalties, investments all that crap that I hate). I was able enjoy life as I started watching Jimâs hair line recede.The complexity of filing tax returns has multiplied time and time again and Jim seems to enjoy his mandatory continuing education. Now I have a cousin and a nephew both CPAâs right here in Texas. My cousin has been a practicing CPA for close to 60 years now and my nephew only for the past two years. Have I ever thought about changing â âHell Noâ.Will I try and use this endorsement to my advantage, you bet. Will Jim yield and grant such â NO. He will just smile and say as he always does âI give you the bestâ.If you are looking for someone to help manage your business, suggest options, keep you appraised business issues and on tax laws, I can think of no one better qualified than Jim. His acumen in this area is unsurpassed.
