April 21, 2012 - PRLog -- WALLINGFORD, CONN --- According to a recent article published in USA Today, 60,000 US troops owe the IRS $390 million dollars.  So for many combat veterans (RCV) returning the country, they will receive an unwelcome surprise from the IRS along with an additional burden to face.

"And that's why we wanted to step in. If someone puts their life on the line for this country and our family's safety, we feel a certain obligation to provide them with the best possible tax lawyering possible," said Anthony E. Parent., founder of IRSMedic and managing partner of Parent & Parent LLP, a boutique tax law firm that specializes in solving tough state and IRS problems.  

The firm's involvement is part of a broader effort by the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS) to help RCVs around the country. "As soon as I heard about this program, I wanted our law firm to be a part of it," said Parent.

For the firm, the issue is personal. Partner Capt.(Ret.) David G. Parent, Esq. knows what combat duty entails, serving in the first Gulf war in the 142nd Medical Clearing Company.

"I was only in Saudi Arabia for 4 months. I was probably safer in our remote desert camp than I pretty much anywhere else in the world," said David Parent. "It's difficult to compare my service with that of the folks coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq; but, I do know what it is like to be separately from your family."

"My dad's service with the Army medics in the 142nd is why I chose IRSmedic for our website url. When I was seven or eight, I asked my dad what he did in the National Guard and he responded, 'We're medics.' I asked further what's a medic? He said "a medic takes someone in trouble and gets them the h---  out of there quickly and safely," remarked Anthony Parent. "So in 2006, when trying to come up with a name, we thought 'IRSmedic' fits perfectly in what we do."

"Except bullets, the trouble we pull people out from is the tax man," added David Parent.

Parent & Parent LLP services clients worldwide but is looking to help Connecticut RCV's first. "Connecticut has a high cost of living and a very poor economic climate -- and high taxes." So those RCV living in Connecticut who need pro bono legal representation are encouraged to go Applicants must be RCVs with documentation of their deployment location and dates.

Those RCVs not in Connecticut are encouraged to visit to find tax help in their area.
