Julie Franklin, EA

I am the go-to girl if you have tax problems.

I graduated in 1991 from MTSU with an accounting degree. Started my career in the private sector and discovered that I love the tax side of accounting. Earned my EA designation August 2001 and have been preparing and representing taxpayers ever since. I am a member of NSTP and NAEA.

EA? What is an EA? An enrolled agent is a tax practitioner who is licensed at the federal level by the Internal Revenue Service. In fact, enrolled agent status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS.

Sometimes dealing with the IRS or your state revenue department can be daunting. Owing taxes is not a death sentence but it can feel like one. The letters from the IRS pile up and most times the taxpayer does not open them. It can cause problems in your relationships. Tax debt can keep you from buying or selling a house. It can make you physically ill and mentally defeated.

It is very rewarding to help someone with their tax problems. This is why I do what I do. I know the rules and requirements. I like to joke and say that I like to argue with the IRS. I have years of experience. I do over 60 hours a year of continuing education so I can stay on top of all the changes. You will need an expert to help you with your tax problems and I’m that expert!


Karen Trusty

My office is Managed by Karen Trusty, and she lives up to her name! She is very trustworthy and has a heart for helping our clients. I could not do it without her. She has worked for me for 16+ years but we have known each other since middle school….many moons ago. She has a banking background and a vast knowledge of different types of businesses. We make a great team together which helps to put our services at the top for our clients.

Let Us Help:


“Closers” have run their numbers, and they know that certain IRS problems can net them big fees. Sure, they’ll quote you a smaller fee during the so-called “financial analysis” in the beginning stages of the process – but they also know that there are lots of different ways that they can tack on additional fees during the process so that, no matter what, they’ll get paid.

My team and I would like to invite you into a different kind of process.

Mind you – we are BULLDOGS when it comes to negotiating on behalf of our clients in front of the IRS. We have plenty of stories to prove it.

We want to fight for you – and you will never have to speak with the IRS yourself.

Click on the button below to take your first step. Feel free to poke around our site and discover why I’ve been called “The Most Trusted Tax Professional in Catoosa County.”

PS — If you are discussing your tax situation over the telephone with other firms, be sure to ask them one important question:

“Are you a licensed tax professional that is legally eligible to offer me tax advice, or are you a salesman?”

This is by far the single most important question you should ask anybody trying to offer you tax advice. If they are a salesperson, I highly encourage you to run quickly in the opposite direction.

PPS – Already ready to come in?

I don’t blame you…many folks are fed up with the other options out there. Our schedule is very full…but if you call us at 706-858-3488 or Email Us, we’ll give you two options for coming in right away! We will NOT make dealing with a tax professional as painful as it’s been in the past!

Talk again soon,

Julie Franklin
