Tax Advisor Barry G. Fowler, EA, Reveals $15.3 Billion-Dollar BP Tax Write Off That Raises Our Taxes

Barry G. Fowler, EA, leading expert in tax resolution issues and CEO of Taxation Solutions, finds even greater inspiration to stand up to the IRS for his clients in light of the recent news that grants British Petroleum a $15.3 billion tax write off for their negligence that lead to the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Houston, TX – October 16, 2015 – Barry G. Fowler, CEO of Taxation Solutions, posted a new blog on the company website entitled “BP Gets $15.3 Billion Tax Write Off. We Get Higher Taxes and Program Cuts.” Inspiration comes in the most unusual ways as Barry Fowler relates in his latest blog post.

barry fowlerFowler writes, “As a tax attorney going to bat for the average American taxpayer who finds him or herself behind on their taxes, unable to pay their taxes or facing other IRS issues, I can tell you that most of my clients experience deep feelings of fear and shame at not being able to meet their tax responsibilities.” He continues adding, “They typically get into tax trouble due to job loss, illness and other types of losses. They do not have deep pockets and they do their best to live their lives responsibly.”

“So,” says Fowler, “when I see multinational corporations like British Petroleum (BP) being granted billions of dollars of tax write-offs for being grossly negligent, responsible for the death of workers and the devastation of the Gulf Coast, I am more inspired to help the underdog.”
