As a tax coach, she offers a FREE tax analysis for those interested in finding out if they are overpaying their income taxes. Her goal is to save taxes one business at a time through the use of pro-active tax planning.

Certified Tax Coaches are tax professionals with advanced training in proactive tax planning from the American Institute of Certified Tax Coaches. Unlike traditional tax preparers who crunch numbers in April, Certified Tax Coaches specialize in proactive year-round strategic planning methods. In order to save clients from overpaying their taxes, Certified Tax Coaches find deductions, credits and strategies, resulting in thousands of tax dollars in savings. Owning a business is the biggest tax shelter left in the United States. Diane provides the expert guidance required to help businesses maximize the amount of retained hard earned profit.
