HELLO!

While the information in my reports and the forms in my compilations are valid for 2017 tax returns, they may change, perhaps substantially, beginning with tax year 2018 if tax “reform” legislation is passed by the end of the year.

I will be revising all items to reflect any tax law changes if tax legislation is signed into law.




My name is Robert D Flach, a transplant from Jersey City NJ to rural Northeast PA.  I have been preparing 1040s for individuals in all walks of life since 1972.  

I am currently “winding down” my tax practice and no longer accept any new clients.

In 45 years of preparing individual income tax returns I have never used flawed and expensive tax preparation software.  One of the last of the dinosaurs, I prepare over 250 sets of returns each year manually.

I learned how to prepare 1040s the best way possible - by preparing 1040s.  On my first day at work for my uncle’s tax preparer, having never prepared a tax return before, my boss led me to a desk.  He gave me a copy of a client’s prior year 1040 and a briefcase with the current year’s "stuff" and told me to “jump in and swim"!

I have been writing the popular tax blog THE WANDERING TAX PRO since the summer of 2001, and also write the blog THE TAX PROFESSIONAL.  I am the creator and author of the websites FIND A TAX PROFESSIONAL, A TAX PROFESSIONAL FOR TAX REFORM, and THE TAX PROFESSIONAL.

I have been a member of the National Association of Tax Professionals for over 30 years, and often writes for the Association's TAXPRO JOURNAL as well as the newsletter of the New Jersey state chapter.   He has created several compilations of forms, schedules and worksheets and special books, reports and guides on tax planning and preparation.  My Amazon.com author page is amazon.com/author/robertflach 

I am available to write articles and columns for websites and portals and print or email newsletters, on general tax topics, or specifically for your individual audience.
