Thanks for joining me! My name is Trudy M. Howard, and I’m the small business tax lady better known by the hashtag #smallbiztaxlady, and I’m here to help you on your entrepreneurship journey! I hold an IRS AFSP record of completion, and I am listed on the Directory of Federal Tax Return Preparers with Credentials and Select Qualifications. In addition to my tax specialist credentials, I am also a licensed insurance broker certified to sell life, health, commercial, auto, and Medicare part C health plans. Should you need the services of a notary, I’m also an Illinois registered notary.

Over the last 15 years I’ve owned several business ranging from an inventory based candle business (in which I used raw materials to manufacture the product), to an incorporated insurance agency (ALEM Agency Inc.) that specializes in covering the hard to insure. In 2012 my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer, and within 3 months I had to bury her; however, as an ongoing form of therapy, later in 2012 I decided to found a tax exempt non profit 501(c)(3) organization Senior Resource Group Inc.  Senior Resource Group Inc. help seniors (and those that are  disabled) find low cost drugs & understand their Medicare options.

As you can see I am experienced & knowledgeable in many areas. I am here to answer your questions pertaining to small business tax planning, small business insurance, new home owner tax preparation, college student tax preparation, business compliance, entity creation, retirement plans, college savings plans, tax resolution (tax problem help), and tax planning for small businesses & individuals. If you have a tax question please email me at
