Ask The Taxgirl: Disclaimer

Have a question for me? Before you ask, let’s make sure we understand a few things, ok?

  1. Unless you have a representation letter in hand, you and I don’t have an attorney-client relationship, capiche? I mean, I’m sure you’re a nice person. I appreciate you stopping by. But it doesn’t mean anything more (I’m having a weird déja vu to a couple of bad dates in college).
  2. Unfortunately, it is impossible to give comprehensive tax advice over the internet, no matter how well researched or written. This blog isn’t meant to offer you legal advice. I’m just calling it like it is. If you have real questions – i.e. you’re hiding in a closet while the feds bang on your door – you need to consult with a tax professional. If you live in my corner of the world, that might be me. But see #1.
  3. Once upon a time, I started a law firm. I still have an affiliation with that law firm. However, this blog is in no way affiliated with my law firm. One of the founding partners and my malpractice carrier insist on it. And I have to live with one of them. And it’s not my malpractice carrier. So, again see #1.
  4. I’m not responsible for anything that anybody might add or comment on the site. So play nice. I don’t want to have to throw you out of here (there’s that déja vu to college again).
  5. And one more thing. I’m not here to help you cheat the system. That should be obvious. But just in case, the IRS wants me to reiterate that I’m not. This blog also isn’t intended to help you get rich, lose weight, have whiter teeth or regrow hair that has been lost. I can’t guarantee dates or life matches or help you make friends (in fact, it’s arguable that if your friends find out that you read a tax blog, you could lose friends). I have never made a good stock tip and I can’t buy your gold. I’m also miserable at making pie.
