The Tax Doctors, or known as National Tax Experts, is a group of attorneys, enrolled IRS agents, and CPAs who help clients with past tax issues. Client tax issues range from past years clients of Nation Tax have not filed to IRS debt not paid. Tax relief firms have had a reputation over the years of not completing work or working from overseas locations pressuring clients to make strange payments via temporary credit cards and Western Union. However, National Tax is a fully licensed firm working out of California where regulations are tight and the firm maintains a high level of credibility and near perfect BBB rating (National Tax at a BBB A rating at time of writing this article).
Due to the size and length of time that National Tax Experts have been in business and with their large television presence, many smaller organizations have spawned attempting to “piggy-back” on their good name. Using the word doctor in their websites or in their business names has caused much confusion as to who is due the negative credit outside of the original National Tax group who’s reputation has a very good standing with the BBB and Business Alliance, as well as with their thousands of clients.

There was a thread with a poll on Sermo (a doctor-only forum) recently asking what percentage of your income you paid in taxes in 2011. The lowest option was <20%. I thought that was ridiculous (since I make about an average physician salary and paid about 8% in Federal, 3.5% in payroll tax, and 4% in state income taxes), so I spoke up about it. After a few days it became evident that either most doctors have no idea what they pay in taxes, or that they pay far too much in taxes. Out of 58 responses on the poll, I was the only one who was paying less than 20% in taxes. Keep in mind that more than half of doctors make less money than I do.
Physicians spend about 40,000 hours training and over $300,000 on their education, yet the amount of money they earn per hour is only a few dollars more than a high school teacher. Physicians spend over a decade of potential earning, saving and investing time training and taking on more debt, debt that isn’t tax deductible. When they finish training and finally have an income – they are taxed heavily and must repay their debt with what remains. The cost of tuition, the length of training and the U.S. tax code places physicians into a deceptive financial situation.
If you’re an employee who has to pay for your own health insurance, you don’t get any tax write-off unless your company provides a cafeteria benefit plan. Many small and medium-sized companies don’t, forcing their employees to pay health premiums with after-tax dollars. Meanwhile, employees with better benefit packages get tax-free company-paid health coverage, and self-employed folks are allowed to write off their health insurance premiums.

Cloud computing is the use of computing resources, both server hardware and software, that are delivered as a service over a network or the Internet. The name comes from the use of a cloud-shaped symbol as an abstraction to visualize the complex system of hardware and software infrastructure used for these systems. Cloud computing removes the use of individual work-station hardware and software, and entrusts remote services with a user’s data, software, and computation (“Cloud computing,” 2012). One of the main thrusts of cloud computing is that encompasses subscription-based services designed to extend IT’s existing reach. It enables an entity to increase or add IT capabilities without having to invest in new computer infrastructure, because the hardware and software are contained in the cloud (Knorr, Eric, and Gruman, Galen, April 7, 2008).
