Mr. Danny next became a revenue agent with the Internal Revenue Service, went through extensive training and began auditing individuals and businesses.

How to save money on your taxes & avoid IRS issues
It’s hard to believe, but I see it every day, that most business owners don’t understand how they can legally minimize their tax exposure. The IRS isn’t a strong armed MOB as some people believe it to be. In fact, the IRS actually promotes small and big business. The problem is not with the IRS or with Tax Rules, instead it’s with the understanding of what you can and cannot use as a lawful write-off.
Unfortunately, even the most skilled CPA Firms still get it wrong. This can not only cause you to lose money that is rightfully earned, it may also land you in the spotlight of the International Revenue Service. No ONE, I mean NO ONE wants to go through an IRS Audit. As an Ex- IRS Agent and Fraud Investigator, I have helped Business Owners for over two decades save money. I KNOW the IRS system.
“In 2010, I received a letter from the IRS, informing me that I was being audited for 2008. My CPA at the time showed up to the audit in the Woodland Hills branch, and by the time he was done, not only did I owe 150K for 08, but was double audited for the 09 year as well ! I was livid to say the least! Now I was on the hook for over 300K ! Needless to say, I fired him, and was referred to Larry through a dear friend of mine that has been using him as his personal accountant for over 12 years. Larry, was very understanding, assured me that everything was going to be OK, and I immediately felt a strong sense of relief when he got on the phone and started calling the IRS on my behalf. To keep it short, Larry filed an audit reconsideration, stopped the harassing letters, and urged me to do some of the bookkeeping myself to save money. I did as he requested, and 8 months later, Larry showed up to the audit, told me to wait outside, and 2 hrs later, he walks back to my car with a huge smile on his face, and informs me that the $350,000 has now been reduced to 11K. OMG!!! This man is Amazing!!! I was about ready to leave the country! I am eternally grateful to Larry’s for all his hard work and persistence dealing with those jack asses at the IRS.”
“We have used Lawrence for over 5 years and he is patient and looks at every angle (eg scheduling joint or separate, what to put away in IRA to review tax benefits). I love going in for two hours and he does them right there and then with us able to answer questions and look at scenarios. Love walking out of the office knowing where we are. And now, his software will run what to expect in 2018 because of tax changes.”
“I encountered Lawrence Danny while going through a difficult divorce and hired him to catch up on 12 years of taxes. From the day I met him, he held my hand through tempestuous times of threats from the IRS and threats from a bellicose ex. I have referred him to everyone I know, and cannot recommend him strongly enough. He has thorough knowledge of tax codes, tax break, and is hip on the latest trends, dangers, etc. Anyone would benefit from having Lawrence on their side.”
