TaxMama.com’s Eva Rosenberg, EA admits. “I hated taxes with a passion when I was in college. I was determined to avoid ever dealing with them at all. But dealing with taxes is all about solving puzzles or unraveling mysteries. I got hooked – and built my life and career around taxes.”
TaxMama asks, “Do you bring your receipts and calculator to the beach or ski lodge? Do you count exemptions instead of sheep? Do you badger every Enrolled Agent and CPA you meet? Do you have endless tax questions that will not keep?”
Meet some colorful Tax Nerds: Roger B. Adams, EA a retired entertainment industry executive, who did a little volunteering at the US Embassy, helping people do their tax returns – and turned it into a full-blown career; Blake Warrington , a retired fireman and body-builder who got a little taste of taxes – and now loves to market any good tax product or service he can find. Bob Whitaker is a wedding videographer, who was audited so many times that he created a system to ensure he would win every time – and now makes a nice living selling it. A favorite Tax Nerd is marketing coach, Sarah Hurty who, once she discovered TaxMama.com, came up with new questions practically every hour – until she found the best way to restructure her family’s taxes and saved thousands of dollars!
TaxMama lays down the challenge. “If this sounds like you, or even if it doesn’t, send in a photo and catchy, clever, funny, or cute short caption proving why you are the Ultimate Tax Nerd of 2012.”
Contestants can use the TaxNerd goodies at TaxMama’s Zazzle site. Folks can customize any of those things by adding their own photo or message, right alongside the TaxNerd logo . They can shoot a photo of their clever adaption of a TaxNerd t-shirt, bumper-sticker, skateboard or anything else that proves they are the Ultimate Tax Nerd of 2012.
