What Finance Experts are saying about JustAnswer 


  I love answering questions on the JustAnswer platform because I can help customers with their tax questions/concerns.  Many individuals are intimidated by the IRS and/or believe they have a problem that cannot be resolved, but usually, everything is fixable in "tax land."  I also enjoy the flexibility of working whatever hours I want at any time of the day or night.
