Insight Tax Services was created to help people with their personal and small business taxes. Mr. Andrew R. Schaefer, the founder and owner, is an Enrolled Agent licensed by the US Treasury to represent individuals and businesses before the IRS. Unlike CPAs or Attorneys, EAs are strictly tax professionals, and they must pass a series of tests and a federal background check before licensure.
Andrew is an alum of Florida State University, holding a Bachelor of Science Degree as a double major in Economics and International Affairs.
Launching his tax career by working with a newly-retired IRS Special Agent in 2009, Andrew built high-level experience in a myriad of tax matters as the right-hand-man of a career IRS Agent. It’s one thing to know how the IRS operates in theory but it’s entirely another to see it with an insider’s perspective.
Andrew launched Insight Tax Services in January, 2012 and has worked from the same building in Thornton Park “at the fountain” ever since. Our services include, but are not limited, to:
- Full IRS Representation Services
- Multi-Year Tax Return Preparation
- Tax Debt Resolution & Settlements
- IRS Audit Defense
- Individual & Business Tax Return Preparation (including state tax returns nationwide)
Andrew is immediate past president of the Orlando Chapter of the Florida Society of Enrolled Agents, serving as Chapter President during 2015, 2016 and 2017. He’s a speaker on tax problem resolution and IRS representation topics, having spoken before the Orange County Bar Association Tax Law Committee, PechaKucha Orlando, and to numerous businesses and organizations. He is also a graduate of the National Tax Practice Institute and is a proud NTPI Fellow.
In 2018, Andrew was published in The Washington Post (‘It’s going to be a nightmare’: Some bitcoin investors are in for a rocky tax season) which is also in print. Locally, he’s served as a guest tax expert on Orlando radio stations as well as on Orlando’s News 6 WKMG. He’s still unsure why a tax question call-in segment qualifies as breaking news but appreciates the flattering photo of him on-air taken by a friend.
When not at the office, Andrew enjoys sprucing up one of his rental homes, flying with fellow pilots such as his brother Matt or father Jim, enjoying his season tickets at an Orlando City SC match, or enjoying a cold beer with friends a stone’s throw away at Graffiti Junktion or Burton’s.
