Ask Me

Have a tax question? Don’t know where to turn? Ask the taxgirl®!

Here’s your chance to ask me your questions about tax and the Tax Code. And yes, there are caveats. What did you expect? I am, after all, an attorney.

  • Keep your personally identifiable information out of your question. This is the internet, remember? If you say things like “I’m the only doctor in my town and my wife is blind,” folks may know it’s you. I’m not going to redact your questions and I may post your question on the site. So use caution.
  • Don’t resend the same question and don’t get annoyed if I don’t answer your question in the first place. I could be researching it. I could be saving it for a specific time of year (i.e., end of year planning). I could be clueless. I could think it’s not appropriate.
  • I don’t know the local tax laws in Texas, Germany, or any other place outside of my locality. I can’t answer international, state and local questions.
  • Keep it short. Just ask your question, again, leaving out personal details.
  • I like to talk about being a tax attorney. You can ask questions about that. But don’t ask me for a job, an internship, a reference, or a letter for your mother. I won’t answer you.
  • Please put the subject of your question in the subject line of your email.
  • Believe it or not, I didn’t grow up under a rock. If you think you’re being clever by sending your advertisement/promotion/tax treatise/election propaganda wrapped up in the guise of a question, you’re not. You’re just annoying. And rude.
  • I reserve the right to add more caveats – that’s what lawyers do – as we go along, so check back often.

With all of that in mind, ask away! Note that, to protect your privacy, I prefer that you ask questions via email.
