The Certified Member Level

The Certified Member level is designed to allow you to take full advantage of all the educational aspects of TFI and fully interact personally with all of our members, including our director, Dan Pilla. As a Certified Member, you receive these valuable benefits:

1. Consultation with Dan Pilla – Certified Members are entitled to three hours per year in direct consultation with our director, Dan Pilla. This service is worth $765 alone and is a terrific way to get a “second opinion” or otherwise troubleshoot difficult or unusual cases. Consultation time can also be used to access our vast array of research materials, which goes well beyond just the code and regulations.

2. Internet Chat Room – Our members have the right to participate in our “members only” Internet chat room. Any member can put out a question, comment or observation to our group and solicit feedback from fellow members. This is an excellent way to “brainstorm” problems and get a feel for the strategies that work in other areas of the country. This benefit gives you direct access to some of the most skilled and experienced tax pros in the nation. There is just no way to put a price on this service.

3. Periodic Conference Calls and Webinars – Certified Members are entitled to participate at no additional charge in all of our period telephone conference calls and Webinars. TFI presents at least four of these per year, during which Dan Pilla or another member of TFI presents a specific, specialized presentation on a timely, important topic that we all need to know about. Other organizations charge as much as $299 for a one-hour telephone conference. Our conferences are included in the cost of your membership. This can be worth as much as $1,196 annually to you. And you can’t buy into our conference calls. They are strictly “members only.”

4. Our Monthly Newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes – Each Certified Member receives our monthly newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes. Each issue of this newsletter is jammed with the kind of critical taxpayers’ rights information that you can use in your practice very day. Our newsletter presents the latest in congressional action, court opinions, IRS determinations, successful IRS defense and negotiation strategies and much more. This letter sells for $99 per year by itself.

5. Continuing Education Credits – We provide up to thirty CPE credits per year, including twelve credits from our annual Taxpayers’ Defense Conference. The credits are always based upon Dan’s books, newsletter articles and special research reports. Since CPE credits generally cost about $30 each, this feature is worth up to $900 annually.

6. Attendance at TFI Functions – Certified Members attend all official TFI functions at member prices. This includes a deep discount on our annual Taxpayers’ Defense Conference. Your member discount on the Taxpayers’ Defense Conference saves you up to $150 annually.

7. Display of TFI Logo and Membership Certificate – Certified Members are entitled to display the official TFI logo on their letterhead and our membership certificate in their office. This is one way they can enjoy the benefits of the national advertising we do each year.

Annual Cost of the Certified Membership

One Year = $ 495
Two Years = $ 890
Three Years = $1,190

Join now for two years and save 10% on your membership fees. Join now for three years and save 20% on your membership fees.

The benefits you receive as a TFI Certified Member far outweigh the annual costs of membership. Just the value of the consulting time with Dan Pilla alone is worth much more than the cost of your membership. When you add in the monthly newsletter and the value of your direct access to our entire membership team, you can quickly see that your annual membership fee is a modest investment to put you on our winning TFI team. To maintain Certified Member status, you must complete twenty hours of CPE annually from the materials offered by TFI.

The Consulting Member Level

The Consulting Member level is our highest membership level. It is desirable for attorneys, accountants and enrolled agents actively engaged in representing clients before the IRS and who wish to build their practice through quality client referrals.

Please Note: The Consulting Member program is currently closed. We are not accepting new Consulting Members at this time.

As a TFI Consulting Member, you receive these benefits:

1. TFI Directory Listing – Consulting Members are listed in our directory of members to whom client referrals are made. Each time a person contacts our office or speaks with Dan Pilla regarding a referral, we give out the name of our Consulting Member nearest them. Our Consulting Members are listed in our newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes, at least twice per year. This way, all the non-professional readers of the letter are invited to contact the TFI member nearest them for help with their own tax problem. The names of our Consulting Members are featured on the web site of Winning Publications, Inc., Dan Pilla’s book publishing company. Our Consulting Members’ contact information is presented with our TFI brochure in direct mail campaigns to Dan’s book buyers from time to time. And our Consulting Members are invited to participate with Dan in public seminars where they have the potential of personally meeting people in need of tax help.

2. Consultation with Dan Pilla – Consulting Members are entitled to three hours per year in direct consultation with our director, Dan Pilla. This service is worth $765 alone and is a terrific way to get a “second opinion” or otherwise troubleshoot difficult or unusual cases. Consultation time can also be used to access our vast array of research materials, which goes well beyond just the code and regulations.

3. Internet Chat Room – Our members have the right to participate in our “members only” Internet chat room. Any member can put out a question, comment or observation to our group and solicit feedback from fellow members. This is an excellent way to “brainstorm” problems and get a feel for the strategies that work in other areas of the country. This benefit gives you direct access to some of the most skilled and experienced tax pros in the nation.

4. Periodic Conference Calls and Webinars – Consulting Members are entitled to participate at no additional charge in all of our period telephone conference calls and Webinars. TFI presents at least four of these per year, during which Dan Pilla or another member of TFI presents a specific, specialized presentation on a timely, important topic that we all need to know about. Other organizations charge as much as $299 for a one-hour telephone conference. Our conferences are included in the cost of your membership. This can be worth as much as $1,196 annually to you. And you can’t buy into our conference calls. They are strictly “members only.”

5. Our Monthly Newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes – Each Consulting Member receives our monthly newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes. Each issue of this newsletter is jammed with the kind of critical taxpayers’ rights information that you can use in your practice very day. This newsletter presents the latest in congressional action, court opinions, IRS determinations, successful IRS defense and negotiation strategies, and much more.

6. Continuing Education Credits – We provide up to thirty CPE credits per year, including twelve credits from our annual Taxpayers’ Defense Conference. The credits are always based upon Dan’s books, newsletter articles and special research reports. Since CPE credits generally cost about $30 each, this feature is worth up to $900 annually.

7. Newsletter Articles – Our Consulting Members have an open invitation to submit articles for our newsletter, Pilla Talks Taxes. This service provides the double benefit of adding to our collective pool of knowledge while showcasing your skill, experience and expertise to the nonprofessional subscribers to PTT. Any article always carries the author’s name, address, and phone number. Readers are invited to call the author for help with similar problems.

8. Attendance at TFI Functions – Consulting Members attend all official TFI functions at member prices. This includes a deep discount on our annual Taxpayers’ Defense Conference. Your member discount on the Taxpayers’ Defense Conference saves you up to $150 annually. In addition, each year, TFI and Winning Publications co-sponsor public seminars, often with other organizations. Attendance at these seminars could be as little as several dozen people or as many as one thousand. The seminars are presented to the public as a means of informing people about taxpayers’ rights and IRS problems resolution. Our Consulting Members are invited to participate with Dan in the question and answer workshops held in connection with these seminars. This way, our Consulting Members are able to meet with and introduce themselves to citizens in need of professional help.

9. Display of TFI Logo and Membership Certificate – Consulting Members are entitled to display the official TFI logo on their letterhead and our membership certificate in their office. This is one way they can enjoy the benefits of the national advertising we do each year.

Annual Cost of the Consulting Membership

One Year = $1,495 *

At $1,495 annually, the TFI Consulting Membership could well be the single most economical way to build your practice while at the same time, obtain the quality guidance and materials you need to stay on top in our industry. To maintain Consulting Member status, you must complete twenty hours of CPE annually from the materials offered by TFI.

Please Note: The Consulting Member program is currently closed. We are not accepting new Consulting Members at this time.

Consulting Member status is limited by experience and geographical area. We limit the number of consulting members in our organization in order to maximize the value of the membership. You must discuss your membership with our staff before it will be accepted.

LEVY OF SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS 
IRS To Limit How Much It Will Seize

A common question with delinquent citizens is whether the IRS can levy social security benefits. The answer, unfortunately, is yes they can, and worse, they do so regularly. Before intercepting an SS payment, the IRS generally sends notice CP91, Final Notice Before Levy On Social Security Benefits. This letter informs you of the impending levy and invites you to call the IRS to set up payments if you cannot pay in full.
