Why Accountants Should Play by the Rules
Tax expert, Michael Rozbruch of popular website, Tax Resolution University, today posted on his blog regarding the importance of playing by the rules for individuals and companies involved in the tax resolution business. With some companies using less than ethical tactics, which has lead to the entire industry coming in for some criticism, he urges potential clients to do their research before employing companies for such purposes, suggesting that they check with the Better Business Bureau and also by making Google searches to see what they uncover about such companies.
‘Information wants to be free’ was first quoted by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple at a Hacker’s Conference way back in 1984.

As a result, as Michael Rozbruch says in his blog posting, in the age of the internet, it really pays to play by the rules.

Because, with the power of the internet at everyone’s disposal today, there’s a good chance that one day the world will know.
