The Tax Giants Services

Privacy Policy

The TAX GIANTS has always safeguarded the confidentiality of information provided to us by our clients and are bound by our professional standards to continue to maintain this vital aspect of our professional relationship. Your privacy is important to us, and maintaining your trust and confidence is one of our highest priorities. We respect your right to keep your personal information confidential and understand your desire to avoid unwanted solicitations. A recent law change requires us (along with banks, brokerage houses, and other financial institutions) to disclose our Privacy Policy to you – which we are more than happy to do. We hope that by taking a few minutes to read it, you will have a better understanding of what we do with the information you provide us and how we keep it private and secure.

A. Types of Information We Collect

Our client engagements routinely require us to collect certain non-public, personal information about you – but only when that information is provided by you or is obtained byThe Tax Giants with your authorization. We use that information to proceed with the various services we perform for our clients as part of the professional relationship, such as to prepare your personal income tax returns, represent your interests before the Internal Revenue Service, and may also provide various tax and financial planning, and debt restructuring services to you at your request.

We collect non-public personal information about our clients from the following sources:

  • interviews and phone calls with you,
  • letters, faxes, or e-mails from you,
  • tax return or financial planning organizers, and
  • financial history questionnaires and supporting documents such as bank statements, and other asset ownership papers.
  • Other Sources: Depending upon the particular service a client has engaged The Tax Giants to complete, we may request nonpublic information concerning the matter at hand. However, this information is never obtained without our client’s specific authorization for the type of information and the source(s) from which it may be obtained.
B. Parties to Whom We Disclose Information

Our policy is never to disclose nonpublic information about our clients or former clients to anyone. Nonpublic personal information is defined in the regulations as any publicly available information that we acquire by using information you have provided us in connection with any professional services we perform for you, which is not public information. In a generic sense, any information that a client provides us that involves financial product or service is likely considered nonpublic personal information and receives the same protection from disclosure as all other information about our clients.  However, to the extent permitted by law and any applicable state Code of Professional Conduct, certain nonpublic information about you may be disclosed only under the following conditions:

  • To comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons.
  • In the course of a review of our firm’s practices under the authorization of a state or national licensing board, or as necessary to properly respond to an inquiry or complaint from such a licensing board of organization.
  • In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of our practice, provided that we take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.
  • As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either initiated by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record.
  • To provide information to affiliates of The Tax Giants and nonaffiliated third parties who perform services or functions for us in conjunction with our services to you, but only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed. (Examples of such disclosures include using an outside service bureau to process tax returns or engaging a records-retention agency to store prior year records.)
C.  Confidentiality and Security of Nonpublic Personal Information

Except as otherwise described in this notice, we restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to employees of The Tax Giants and other parties who must use that information to provide services to you. Their right to further disclose and use the information is limited by our policies, applicable law, our Code of Professional Conduct, and nondisclosure agreements where appropriate.  Also, we do not disclose nonpublic personal information, or any other information, to any outside party without specific client authorization. An example would be other professionals who are assisting The Tax Giants in carrying out a client engagement. In such a case, we would require the client’s approval for such a disclosure.
Other than as stated above, in addition to the privacy protection that the new FTC regulations provide you, the Internal Revenue Code prevents the disclosure of client information provided for tax planning or preparation services without the client’s written permission. Further, the ethics rules that govern the operation principles that The Tax Giants must follow prohibit disclosing client information.
We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable laws and regulations to guard your non-public personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, or premature destruction.
Thank you for allowing us to serve your tax preparation and representation needs. We value your business and are committed to protecting your privacy while providing the finest service available. We hope you view The Tax Giants as your most trusted advisor and we will work to continue earning your trust.

D. Opt Out Provision

The Federal Trade Commission regulations provide that this notice must include a provision for you to request that we not release your nonpublic personal information. While such a request is unnecessary, because we do not disclose your nonpublic personal information in a manner that would allow you to opt out, in the interests of satisfying regulations, we include this Opt Out Provision.
