Derek Ware Jr.

Founder / Licensed IRS Enrolled Agent

I bring 3 years of hands on experience in taxation and I am a licensed IRS Enrolled agent, the highest credential the IRS awards to tax professionals for their knowledge in taxation. Aside from being able to prepare and file any type of tax return (estates, trusts, corporations, etc) in all 50 states, this elite status allows me to represent taxpayers when it comes to any tax matter such as collections, audits and appeals. 

Before I got into the tax industry, I’ve produced live concerts for 5 years. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, I witnessed firsthand the financial hardships faced by many individuals. This experience inspired me to embark on a journey in philanthropy and financial services. My mission is to empower individuals with valuable knowledge about preparing for tax season, minimizing tax liabilities, and gaining a comprehensive understanding of their returns. By fostering motivation and providing assistance, I aim to contribute to the growth of the younger community, bridge the gap in tax law knowledge, and ultimately foster wealth creation within our communities.
